BEFORE AND AFTER SMILING

Our 8 year old patient would posture her tongue between her upper and lower teeth, stopping her front teeth from moving towards each other. She had a tongue crib glued onto her back teeth which stopped her tongue from posturing forward as well as training her tongue to rest behind her upper or lower front teeth. She then had braces as a teenager to perfect her bite and the alignment of her teeth.

BEFORE AND AFTER CLOSE UPS

Correcting her bite means that all of her teeth can now wear evenly which can prevent cracking of teeth/fillings and provide better functioning of her TMJ’s.
