Nathan

  • Name: Nathan
  • Age: 7 years 7 months (before) , 12 years 10 months (after)
  • Type:

Nathan’s upper and lower teeth were in a good relationship with a normal class I bite apart from a little asymmetry. However his face had noticeably swung downwards and he had developed a reverse swallow pattern using his lower lip and cheeks when swallowing. This abnormal swallowing pattern had sucked back the lower front teeth, leaving the cheeks enlarged and the lips in a bad position.

He is still undergoing therapy but so far the facial change has been impressive and almost certainly life changing.
