Orthodontic Case of the Month

This is an orthodontic case that we have just completed recently. The main goal of any orthodontic treatment is to correctly align the upper jaw to the lower jaw resulting in a healthy TemporoMandibular joint(TMJ). Here, we have not only aligned the patient's teeth, but more importantly properly matched the upper jaw to the lower jaw. This ensures that the patient not only looks good and is stable, but does not develop any TMJ issue afterward, such as clicking or noise in the joints, pain in the jaw, or headaches relating to the bite.
