Early Treatment Gallery – Before and After
We may not all start out with perfectly aligned teeth, but the doctors at Pediatric Dental Group know how to turn overbites, underbites, and openbites into healthy smiles.
View our “before” and “after” dental treatment photos below to see how we’ve helped many of our patients overcome cavities, advanced tooth decay, fractured teeth or other issues. We restore your young one’s teeth so they can smile with confidence again! See Full Treatment Cases for more.
Early Treatment Cases
A fixed upper expander was used to widen the upper jaw to create space for the upper front teeth to grow and also to correct the shift of the lower jaw to the side.
A removable upper retainer with springs and an expander was used to widen the upper jaw to create space for the upper front teeth to move forward and centre.
Protruded Upper Front Teeth
Upper front braces and headgear were used to move the upper front teeth backwards and align them.
Anterior Open Bite
A crib appliance was used to stop a thumb habit that was causing an anterior open bite.
A lower space maintainer was cemented and kept in place to preserve the space when the last baby teeth fall out.
A case showing the placement of an upper space maintainer and the extraction of four adult teeth and subsequent eruption of the remaining adult teeth fills in the majority of the space. Upper and lower braces are used to close the remaining space.
