Before & After Orthodontic Treatment
Every patient listed below is an actual patient of Dr. Jared Corbridge at Corbridge Orthodontics. We truly love crafting gorgeous smiles for our patients, and we think our results speak for themselves. Take a look and see for yourself!
Case 1 - Cassie
Cassie had crowding, a deep overbite, excessive overjet, and an uneven smile. Dr. Corbridge thought we might need jaw surgery to fully correct her bite but with excellent patient cooperation, and Dr. Corbridge using his expertise, they were able to achieve a beautiful smile and excellent bite using braces and elastics.
Case 2 - Shane
Shane had crowding, high canines, a posterior crossbite, and deep overbite. She was treated with an expander and braces and now has a stunning smile!
Case 3 - Luke
Luke had crowding, an uneven smile, and an anterior crossbite. He was treated without removing any permanent teeth and finished with a great smile!
Case 4 - Chloe
Chloe came to us with crowding, a high canine, posterior crossbite, and CL III malocclusion (lower jaw ahead of upper jaw). She told us that she never smiled because she was embarrassed of her teeth. Dr. Corbridge estimated her treatment would take between 2 and 2 1/2 years but Chloe finished in only 22 months-just in time for graduation! She now can’t stop smiling and showing off her gorgeous smile!
Case 5 - Clay
Clay started his orthodontic treatment to help correct an uneven smile, protruding teeth, and deep overbite. He was a great patient and did an excellent job wearing his elastics. Together, he and Dr. Corbridge achieved a spectacular smile and proper bite.
Case 6 - Mickey
Mickey came to us concerned about excessive spacing between her teeth. She wore upper and lower braces and chose to go with clear braces (Clarity Advanced) on top. She completed her orthodontic treatment in less than a year and a half.
Case 7 - Jennifer
Jennifer had severe crowding (including her Upper Left canine which was 100% blocked out), an anterior open bite, midlines that did not line up, and an edge to edge bite on the front teeth. Dr. Corbridge was able to save all the teeth and create space for the permanent canine. Jennifer finished with a gorgeous smile and ideal bite.
Phase I Early Orthodontic Treatment
(Cases 8 - 14)
The majority of our patients are receiving either adolescent treatment or adult orthodontic treatment, but in some cases, the best way to achieve a healthy smile is to start treatment early. Known as Phase I orthodontic treatment, this usually begins between ages 7 and 9 and normally takes about a year. After Phase I, there's a resting period of a few years, followed by Phase II treatment that starts once all the permanent teeth have erupted.
Fundamentally, early orthodontic treatment works because at this early age, the two halves of the upper jaw are still separated. This means we can use orthodontic appliances like palatal expanders to gradually, painlessly widen the jaw, creating more space in the smile and preventing the need for more invasive treatments like oral surgery. Take a look at our early orthodontic before & after photos to see just what's possible with early orthodontic treatment!
Case 8 - Madeleine
Madeleine had protrusion of the upper teeth, a deep overbite, misaligned teeth, and crowding. She had Phase I treatment with an expander and partial braces and had dramatic changes in the appearance and function of her teeth.
Case 9 - Allyson
Allyson came to us with an anterior crossbite causing recession on her lower incisor. She also had a deep overbite and crowding. This demonstrates nicely why sometimes it is better to correct a problem early rather than waiting for full braces.
Case 10 - Caden
Caden had excessive spacing between his upper front teeth and protrusion of the front teeth. He wore upper and lower partial braces for 12 months and Dr. Corbridge was able to close the gap in the top and create room for the permanent teeth in the lower.
Case 11 - Leyton
Leyton had an anterior crossbite which was corrected with upper partial braces only for 10 months. This helps prevent recession of the lower teeth commonly seen with anterior crossbites that are not corrected early.
Case 12 - Kelsey
Kelsey had an underbite which Dr. Corbridge was able to correct with only upper partial braces for 12 months. Not only was her bite corrected but her smile now lights up the room!
Case 13 - Kennedy
Kennedy and her mom chose for Kennedy to undergo Phase I orthodontic treatment to correct her protrusion and misaligned teeth. She wore upper partial braces and a headgear for a total of 15 months and you can see how much change she was able to achieve
Case 14 - Lauren
Lauren had an openbite, protrusion of the upper teeth and an uneven smile. She had an expander and upper and lower braces for a total of 14 months. What an incredible change and gorgeous smile!
Common Orthodontic Problems & Conditions
Ultimately, the end goal for every patient is a healthy, beautiful smile, but the methods and techniques used to get there vary greatly from patient to patient. While a lucky few are born with perfect teeth, most people will develop an orthodontic problem – also called a malocclusion – at some point in their lifetime. Here are a few of the most common types of malocclusion, all of which we can treat in our office:
- Crowding: This occurs when there's insufficient room in the dental arch to accommodate all the teeth, resulting in crowded, misaligned teeth.
- Overlap: This condition is marked by spacing issues and a severe overlap in the teeth of the upper jaw. Addressing both of these concerns through braces brings the teeth into a more optimal alignment.
- Openbite: In this malocclusion, the upper and lower front teeth don't meet when the mouth is closed, causing an impediment to both speech and bite function. We can correct this issue by using braces to shift the teeth into healthier alignment.
- Spacing: Spacing issues occur when there are gaps between the teeth caused by excessive space in the jaw. We can correct spacing issues easily using treatments like braces or Invisalign.
- Overbite: This occurs when the teeth of the upper jaw extend too far out over the lower jaw. In extreme cases, the lower jaw may even bite into the roof of the mouth. We can correct this misalignment by shifting these teeth back and bringing the lower jaw forward.
- Underbite: The opposite of overbite, this occurs when the lower teeth extend out past the upper teeth. We can correct this issue by using braces to bring the lower jaw back.
