Before
After

This adult patient (age 25) required braces and jaw surgery to correct his severe overbite, with treatment taking two years. His problem could have been corrected without surgery if he had been treated before he was a teenager.

Missing Lateral Incisors

Underbite
Before
After

Spacing of Teeth

Before
After

This patient was bothered by the spaces between his teeth. Braces closed the spaces and gave him an ideal bite in 24 months. Special glued-in retainers help keep the spaces closed.

Overbite: Protruding Front Teeth

Overbite
Before
After

At the age of 10, this patient had a large overbite with the top teeth protruding beyond the bottom. She had two phases of treatment. The first helped her jaws to grow more harmoniously; the second aligned her teeth and bite. At the age of 13, she is proudly displaying her new smile.

Non-braces Treatment

Non-braces Treatment
Before
After

Sometimes braces are not needed to get noticeable improvements in tooth alignment. This patient was first seen at age seven for crowding of the lower permanent teeth. A procedure was performed to reduce the width of the adjacent baby teeth and the permanent incisors aligned on their own in nine months.

Phase I

Phase I
Before
After

This patient's parents were concerned about both esthetics and the health of the erupting permanent teeth when they brought him to the orthodontist at the age of eight. The lower front teeth were crowded and they touched the palate, and the upper front teeth were extremely displaced from their normal positions. After 20 months of Phase I treatment with an expander and partial braces, the patient's appearance and dental function was vastly improved.
