Note: All before and after photos and videos below are of actual patients treated by the Doctors and team at Marin Ortho.
For this severe level of crowding we first made room for the stuck canine teeth which can be seen sticking out of the gums. Later the patient received braces to finish straightening her teeth and give her a “knock your socks off” smile.
Most orthodontists would have removed 4 permanent teeth to make room whereas our non extraction philosophy is to make the space needed at a younger age to avoid more invasive extractions later.
This patient had already received early treatment from another orthodontist in Marin before transferring to our office. Even though he already had his permanent teeth in we were able to resolve his severe crowding using only Damon braces and without removing any teeth.
