11A Pre Phase I
11B Phase I Completed
11A PRE-PHASE I PRE-TREATMENT
This patient started treatment when she was just shy of her 8th birthday. Her parents wore braces when they were growing up. The father had to have four permanent teeth removed to achieve a good smile and bite. The mother was a “borderline” extraction case which meant that she was treated early to eliminate the need for extraction.
11B PHASE I COMPLETED
Phase I orthodontic treatment was prescribed by Dr. Guess. She was seen five times over the course of 10 months. The results in 11B show the result of his work. Early treatment can create tremendous positive changes by giving the parents and patients more treatment options. These three intraoral photographs show the patient one year after phase I was completed.
