This 17-year old patient had a pronounced underbite, severe teeth crowding, and a crossbite towards the back of his mouth as well. Because of the number of problems, the patient was previously told that he would need surgery to correct them all. He didn’t want to undergo surgical treatment, but he still wanted to improve the overall look of his smile. So, Dr. Amin Mason came up with a customized treatment plan, which consisted of using a temporary anchorage device (TAD) supported expander to widen his dental arch, another TAD to close the spaces between his lower teeth, and Damon self-ligating braces. One of the patient’s lower premolars was removed as well so his teeth had enough room to shift. In the end, not only was the patient able to avoid surgery, but he obtained excellent results that he simply couldn’t believe.
