Surgical Damon Orthodontic Treatment
A combined orthodontic and surgical treatment was used to align the teeth and move the lower jaw forward.
Severe Crowding Damon Orthodontic Treatment
This patient complained of his teeth “sticking out”. He had severe crowding with his front teeth overlapping and it was corrected with upper and lower Damon fixed braces. The correction is maintained with bonded and removable retainers.
Functional & Damon
This patient presented with a deep bite and mild crowding. The lower jaw was set back and brought forward with a Functional appliance, which was followed by upper and lower fixed Damon braces. The correction is maintained with bonded and removable retainers.
Incorrect Deep Bite
This patient had a traumatic overbite with damage to the lower labial soft tissue. She was treated with Upper and Lower Fixed braces and the correction are maintained by removable and bonded retainers.
This patient had moderate crowding in the upper and mild crowding in the lower. As aesthetics was very important for this patient, she did not want a brace to show. Lingual braces are placed behind the teeth so no one will know that you are wearing them.
This patient presented with 3 impacted canines (not erupted naturally). The canines were exposed and pulled into the arch with fixed upper and lower Damon braces. The correction is maintained with upper and lower removable retainers.
This patient was unhappy with the positioning of her teeth and this is a case which qualified for Invisalign
This case was treated with traditional Gemini braces to straighten teeth and to correct the occlusion.
Implants Missing Teeth
Missing teeth (hypodontia) with implants. The treatment required upper and lower fixed braces to move the teeth and spaces into the correct position for implants when the patient reaches facial maturity. Retainers are being worn in the interim with “teeth” in the spaces to help with appearance.
Incorrect bite position- deep bite. She was treated with fixed appliances in both arches. Final tooth positions are being maintained with bonded and removeable retainers.
Minor alignments can be achieved with aligners. This young lady did not like her rotated canine teeth and did not want to have fixed braces. These types of small movements were corrected using a 5 aligner system called Simply 5.
Patient presented complaining of ‘gap’, missing upper left 2. For a combined approach, referral was initially made to implantologist.
Orthodontically space was opened further to facilitate the successful implant. Referrals are readily made to specialist colleagues with full liaison of your own GDP.
Gingival Margin Reduced
A combined orthodontic/GDP approach resulting in a beautiful smile. Fixed braces to align teeth. Oral health benefits and improvements seen to the patient gum line. On the completion of the orthodontics a referral back to your chosen GDP for the new porcelain crown to be constructed.
A classic case of periodonticaly involved teeth that had drifted. Once realigned with orthodontics it restored confidence in the patient and allowed the firming of soft tissue to facilitate the ease of good oral health.
