Treatment of anterior crossbite (negative over-jet)
The patient was concerned about the aesthetic appearance of his teeth. Diagnosis: anterior crossbite (negative over-jet), teeth crowding, pathological abrasion, gum recession.
Our specialists suggested two-phase orthodontic treatment. Since the patient is already an adult, it was decided to stretch the palatine suture. For this purpose, orthodontic device Hyrax was used. After 4 months of using the device, self-ligating braces were fixed on the upper and lower jaws. The adjustment was conducted once every 6-8 weeks.
During the last phase of orthodontic treatment, the patient had an implant placed in the area of the 36th tooth. After removing the braces, a zirconia crown was placed in the area of the 36th tooth implant. A metal retainer was fixed on the lower jaw.
The patient was recommended wearing a plastic retainer for the next six months to keep the result.
