Nichola’s case was slightly more complicated than the usual routine clear brace/aligner journey. She had quite a narrow arch and therefore we felt it would be best to open up the upper and lower arch before straightening her teeth.
This can help with several things including if the patient has trouble eating, breathing clearly – even snoring – as the airway is opened up.
Once the arches were widened and we were happy, we moved onto SmileTru, which is the clear brace/aligner system we use. A series of clear aligners were worn to guide the teeth into the desired position, This is very similar to Invisalign.
The whole process took around 3 years from start to finish and the patient couldn’t be happier.
“I have so much confidence now. I even feel comfortable entering a room alone which I could never have done before. Braces are easily the best decision I’ve made”. – Quote from Nichola.
