ORTHODONTIC ENGINEERING TOOLS OF THE TRADE Coral’s mum explains “My daughter’s jaw was set so far back and she had a big gap at the front. Her bottom teeth were digging into the roof of her mouth.” “Th e fi rst time she walked out of the surgery with the braces on, she found it challenging but she persevered.” Coral said “I must wear them, I am going to do it!” For the brace to work correctly the blocks on your brace have to meet together properly at all times – walking around with your mouth open and the blocks not in contact is not a great idea! Th e way in which this appliance works and also how quickly it works relies solely on your commitment to the treatment plan specifi ed by the orthodontist. After the twin blocks had achieved the desired eff ect Coral then went on to have a fi xed brace, commonly known amongst teenagers as ‘train tracks’. “When the tracks were put on the teeth moved so quickly!” says Coral’s mum. Coral’s total treatment time was 15 months and she hasn’t looked back since, “She has the most amazing smile now. I cannot thank him enough!” > BEFORE TREATMENT > AFTER TREATMENT > BEFORE TREATMENT > BEFORE TREATMENT > BEFORE TREATMENT CASE 2 AGE AT START OF TREATMENT: 13 years old PROBLEM: > TWIN-BLOCK > AFTER TREATMENT > AFTER TREATMENT > AFTER TREATMENT > CERAMIC FIXED BRACES 6 Increased overjet 6 Deep bite 6 Impacted lower canine SOLUTION: 4 Twinblock appliances to correct overjet 4 Upper & lower ceramic fi xed braces RETAINER: 4 Upper & lower Essix (transparent and removable) retainers for day time 4 Upper & lower Hawley (removable) retainers for night time TREATMENT DURATION: 16 months ≥ 111 Smiles & F aces The Comprehensive Guide To Orthodontics Octagon Orthodontics www.octagonorthodontics.com ORTHODONTIC BRACES
