Before and afters

See the dramatic difference orthodontic treatment has made in the smiles of our happy patients.

Before

After

Crowding

Crowding is a very common orthodontic problem. Crowded teeth can not only affect your smile’s appearance, but can also be difficult to clean and are prone to uneven wear.

Before

After

Protruded teeth

Protruded teeth jut forward and are more prone to damage. In addition, the lower front teeth often over-erupt and can damage the palate behind the top front teeth.

Before

After

Deep bite

In a deep bite, the upper front teeth cover most (or all) or the lower front teeth. A deep bite can cause excessive wear of the front teeth and gum damage behind the upper front teeth.

Before

After

Impacted ectopic teeth

Teeth can sometimes fail to erupt into the mouth. These teeth can be carefully uncovered and then guided into the correct position with braces. In this case, an upper central incisor was saved.

After

Missing teeth & gaps

Sometimes a tooth that grows is too small to be useful, or fails to grow in at all. With braces we can close gaps either by substituting neighbouring teeth or creating space for a prosthetic implant.

Before

After

Open bite

An open bite exists when teeth don't meet together. This can cause eating problems, speech problems, and excessive wear of the teeth which do have contact.

Before

After

Crossbite

A crossbite occurs when the upper jaw is too narrow and the lower jaw swings to one side to allow the teeth to mesh.
