Before and After Photos of orthodontic care by Dr. Poyak
Orthodontic Case #6
I first saw this young female at about 11 years of age. It was pretty obvious that she didn’t have enough room for her teeth to align properly and that something was going to need to be done to help.
One of the issues was that she had a narrow, tapered upper arch shape as well as two teeth that are significantly smaller than normal. This meant that we had a significant discrepancy in the size/shape of the jaw and the amount of room for the teeth.
It was decided that if one of her lower front teeth was removed, that the remaining teeth could be put in place and fit together well. (If you look at the bottom photos, you can count one less tooth in the front.)
The results were a beautiful, full smile that is stable and healthy.
