Patient Evaluation

 

When Dr. Salzer first met with Mandy, she noticed right away that she had extractions from her prior orthodontics. “It left her with a narrow smile and it felt kind of empty. There wasn’t a lot of presence to her smile and I knew there could be,” Salzer said.

Her arch was compressed into a v-shape and narrow. And while there were less teeth, there was still significant crowding.

Treatment

Dr. Salzer created a treatment plan for Mandy that eventually created a fuller and wider smile. She also torqued the front teeth forward, which created more lip support.
