Common Treatments

 Crowding of the teeth Before

 Crowding of the teeth After

After

A lot of people have crowding of their teeth. In fact, this is one of the most common things we see here. This patient of ours had moderate upper and lower crowding.


Open bite - Front teeth don't touch Before

Before

Open bite - Front teeth don't touch After

After

Open bites can occur for a number of reasons. The most common are thumb sucking and anterior tongue thrusts. This patient of ours was treated with our ceramic braces and a special appliance to help close the open bite.


Deep overbite - Lower front teeth bite into palate Before

Deep bites are another common problem we see here and can lead to problems with gum tissue and wear of the teeth. This patient of ours was treated with our metal braces.


Missing lateral incisors Before

Before

After

Some people are born without all of their adult teeth. After we corrected this patient’s crowding and deep bite, we created space for his dentist to place a temporary restoration. When he is older, this patient will have implants placed where he is missing these lateral incisors.


Underbite - Lower front teeth in front of upper teeth Before

Before

Underbite - Lower front teeth in front of upper teeth After

After

An underbite, also sometimes called anterior crossbite, can be due to a number of different things such as disproportionate jaws, or improperly aligned teeth. This patient of ours had an underbite that was causing him jaw joint discomfort and excessive wear on his teeth. He was extremely happy with the results of his treatment.


Spacing of teeth Before

Before

Spacing of teeth After

After

This patient was bothered by the spaces between his teeth. Braces closed the spaces and gave him an ideal bite in 24 months. Special glued-in retainers help keep the spaces closed.


Overjet - Protruding front teeth Before

Before

Overjet - Protruding front teeth After

After

At age ten, this patient had a big overjet with the top teeth protruding beyond the bottom. He had two phases of treatment. The first helped his jaws to grow more harmoniously and the second aligned his teeth and bite. At age 13, he was proudly displaying his new smile.


Phase-One Before

Before

Phase-One After

After

This patient’s parents were concerned about both esthetics and the health of the erupting permanent teeth when they brought him to the orthodontist at age eight. The lower front teeth were crowded and touching the top of the mouth, and the upper front teeth were extremely displaced from their normal positions. After 12 months of Phase-One treatment with an expander and partial braces, this patient’s appearance and dental function were vastly improved.


Crossbite Before

Before

Crossbite After

After

Crossbites are seen when the bottom teeth are further out relative to the top teeth. They can occur on anterior or posterior teeth and can lead to a number of problems including jaw pain and excessive wear of the teeth. This patient’s crossbite involved the anterior teeth and was corrected with our ceramic braces. Sometimes, an expander is used to correct a crossbite if there are many teeth in crossbite.

We wanted our patients and friends to know we are going to remain open at this time.
THE GOALS OF SBO:
•To decrease the risk of exposure within our office and increase #socialdistancing. -We are evaluating all areas of the office that we consider high traffic and eliminating things like magazines and the coffee bar for the time being. -We are going to limit the amount of non-essential appointments so for you retainer checks...we will be calling to reschedule your appointment.
•If you are having any orthodontic concerns, we will be happy to address them by email, Facebook messenger or over the phone.
•If you feel comfortable, please have your child come into the office alone. Please do not bring children without appointments into the office.
One of our office mottos is “To be available for our patients” and with these precautions we feel confident in our ability to be there for you!

📢PSA: At Sherman and Briscoe Orthodontics we are used to washing our hands a thousand times a day, wearing the appropriate protective equipment (AKA: masks!) and wiping down all surfaces that are high touch. So, it is business as usual at our office. “Doing good work” is one of our mottos and part of that is following all recommended CDC and OSHA recommendations regardless of what viruses are out there. Because of that you can rest assured you will get a smile that will last a lifetime.
You can help us by rescheduling your appointment if you are feeling ill or have traveled to a high-risk area.
We look forward to seeing you around the office.
