“My bite is uncomfortable, and I have difficulty biting into apples,” was the complaint from this 14-year-old boy.
His dentist was concerned about the excessive wear on the front teeth in such a young patient due to the incorrect bite at the front of the mouth. Dr Wong treated this patient with no extractions. A removable upper brace was fitted initially to correct the bite. Then Toby was fitted with upper and lower clear fixed braces. Toby was especially conscious of his teeth, so he opted for white, aesthetically superior wires.
Fifteen months and 3 weeks later, Toby smiled at his mum with his healthy and happy smile. His dentist was pleased with the result as he was reassured that the excessive wear would no longer continue and further shortening of the front teeth was no longer a problem for this young man.
