Before and After Treatment
Openbite: Front teeth don't touch
Patients exhibit an open bite in the anterior(front) teeth and a crossbite in the posterior(back) teeth. Patient did not want orthognathic surgery to correct bite so she was treated by expanding the upper arch and removing two lower bicuspids.
Underbite: Lower front teeth in front of upper teeth
Very large underbite. Patient was missing two upper teeth. Lower teeth were moved back under uppers. Patient did not have surgery but did have two lower teeth removed to allow retraction of lower anterior teeth.
