- Name: Charlotte
- Age: 7 years 6 months (before) , 11 years 2 months (after)
- Type: Lip catch
Charlotte had a severe lip catch which was exacerbating her overjet. She had been told that she would need two upper teeth extracted and her front “bunny teeth” pulled back into line with the rest of her teeth. Our treatment resulted in almost exactly the opposite of this!
We used expansion to move the whole of her face, both upper and lower jaws forwards. This in turn actually moved the upper front teeth further forward.
By learning to keep her lips together, her tongue in the roof of her mouth and by doing her exercises the ‘bunny teeth’ effect was lost. Her improved facial structure and posture corrected the alignment of her teeth naturally and permanently without any pushing or pulling by us.
