Braces & Invisalign

Thank you for your question. To correct what is commonly termed as an "overbite", the increased distance between the upper front teeth and lower front teeth, space is needed to bring the upper teeth inwards. Interproximal reduction is a procedure where small spaces are created by sh...

Thank you for your question and for including pictures of your smile. It appears to me that you may have had prior braces treatment with conventional braces and some of the teeth may have shifted such as the lower front teeth and the upper lateral incisors. The uploaded photo qua...

Thank you for your question. Braces treatment combined with jaw surgery is usually indicated when the malocclusion (bad bite) is a result of malposition teeth and/or malposition jaws. You can read more about some of the common indications of jaw surgery in this article here: https...

crooked upper teeth
There are 2 ways to align crooked teeth. 1) Orthodontically . The teeth are moved into the correct place using braces or aligners (such as Invisalign). This is the least minimally invasive option. Depending on the case, sometimes cosmetic alignment of only the front teeth may be done to keep t...

Thank you for your question and for sending photos of your lovely little girl. From her profile photo, it does appear that her lower lip is slightly more in front of her upper lip and the lower jaw is also slightly more prominent on her frontal photo. You mentioned that she has a...

Thank you for your question. From the profile photos that you have sent, it does appear to me that the upper lip position is ideal, while the lower lip is set back due to the retruded position of the lower jaw. I use the Zero Meridian line as a reference, which is a vertical line fr...

Rotated back molar braces treatment
Hi there, Not to worry, as long as your braces are still on, your orthodontist or dentist will be able to realign the molar for you pretty easily. From the image, the rotation looks rather mild and should be easily corrected. Do let your orthodontist know, perhaps he/she is worki...
11 Mar 2019
Hi there, The purpose of extractions of teeth for braces treatment is usually to create space for: 1) de-crowding crooked teeth (crooked teeth need space to align) 2) correcting midlines of teeth that are off to one side 3) pushing teeth inwards if they are protruding ...
