By extracting a patient’s overcrowded teeth, the team at Dream Smiles Orthodontics was able to provide straight-forward orthodontic work

Patient E came to Dream Smiles Orthodontics in Brisbane with an irregular and crowded bite. After a consultation, one of our expert orthodontists explained the oral health issue to Patient E. Her case was one of gross shortage of space or a set of oversized teeth trying to squeeze into a small mouth.

As you can see her teeth are overcrowded. However, because there was no issue with her jaw size balance and lips, the treatment process was a fairly simple one. In Patient E’s case four teeth were extracted which allowed the necessary orthodontic treatment to progress smoothly and without any problems.

Extraction is not something that is undertaken lightly. In fact, as most dentists will tell you, extraction is generally something dentists aim to avoid. But in the case of Patient E, extracting the four teeth allowed  the other teeth to be aligned into a much more healthy bite.

See the difference in the before and after photos?

There’s no overcrowding, the overbite has been greatly reduced and her teeth and gums look healthier.

The Main Message: Patient E’s problem did not involve any problems with either the size of her jaw or lip anomalies. For this reason orthodontic treatment was much easier.
