Original Problem: Spacing, Crowding, Twisted Teeth
The problems here included spacing between the teeth at the front and crowding at the back, and some twisted (rotated) teeth in the middle. Also the overlap of the upper and lower front teeth wasn't ideal. This was treated with fixed appliances and t...[Read More]

This patient had some crowded teeth and was treated with fixed braces. She was really keen to have the braces finished before her Debs Ball, and we arranged to see if she was ready to finish earlier than we had planned. Because we have a laboratory i...[Read More]

Original Problem: Crossbite, Crowding
This is the kind of view that a dentist would have of your teeth - this is a view of the top teeth, taken from below, as if you were very small and standing on someone's tongue and looking up.Normally teeth would be arranged in an arch shape, a bit...[Read More]

Original Problem: Crossbite, Crowding
Crowded teeth on both jaws, with some of the top teeth trapped behind the lower teeth (a crossbite) and other top teeth biting edge to edge with the lowers. The crowding makes teeth more difficult to clean, and the bite means that the teeth might be...[Read More]

Original Problem: Overlapping Teeth, Crowding, Crossbite
Here's a series of photos that shows what orthodontics can do for someone. This patient's smile gives an idea that something's not right with the way the teeth are lined up. When you look inside the mouth you can really see how crowded the teeth are...[Read More]

Original Problem: Overlapping Teeth, Crowding, Crossbite
The view from the inside of the mouth shows what a profound impact fixed braces can have on the alignment of teeth. With this patient, we were able to align the teeth into a nice arch-shape, which is easier to keep clean and healthy.

Original Problem: Overlapping Teeth, Crowding
The smile before the treatment shows overlapping, crowded teeth. The teeth next to the upper central teeth are almost hiding behind the central ones. This was treated with fixed braces, and the result was a much better alignment of the teeth, clearly...[Read More]
