A New Journey Begins – A.Farr

By Andrew Farr Associate Dentist

Broad Street Dental Surgery. Hereford

This young lady presented to Broad Street Dental Surgery complaining of a buccally placed mandibular left lateral incisor. She had undergone orthodontic treatment in her teens but due to a lack of retention her labial segment has changed as shown below.

Treatment options for this case included fixed orthodontics, removable orthodontics or accepting the current situation. With removable orthodontics using clear aligners Inter proximal reduction (IPR) would be needed to create space to allow the mandibular incisor to move lingual. It was decided therefore that a fixed solution would provide a more predictable outcome and would need very little if any IPR.

We use only clear/tooth coloured brackets from QST (Quick Straight Teeth) which are straightforward to use and provide excellent aesthetics. The treatment was estimated to take around 4-6 months and the patient would be provided with adequate retention following treatment to reduce the risk of relapse.
