Patient J.K. (age 15) had a deficient upper jaw, high position of cuspids and forward position of the lower jaw. We will try to avoid jaw surgery.
We have started the therapy with a rapid palatal expansion to harmonize both jaws. After that we bonded the upper jaw, and the cuspids were aligned as well.
We started regulating the bite with bonding the lower jaw as well, connecting them with rubber bands. The palate expansion tool has been removed now, eating is much easier for the patient and she is already happily laughing. We are expecting the final results soon.
