This eleven year old boy was treated with a non-extraction technique by a General Dental Practitioner. He was actually on a waiting list to have premolar removal prior to retraction type Orthodontics.
The parents concerned for his well being sought a second opinion regarding his treatment, and on further consultation decided on non-extraction therapy.
Treatment time up to the second portrait picture was 15 months!
|This consisted of starting treatment with an upper expansion removable orthopaedic appliance (Schwarz)||Followed by 9 months of removable functional appliance (Bionator).|
As you can imagine, both the patient and his parents are delighted with the results of the treatment.
