In this real-life conversation, the treating dentist consulted orthobrain on very specific issues regarding their patient. The dentist needed assistance on wire bending and space closing. As you can see, orthobrain was there for the Treating Dentist every step of the way, even one hour before the next appointment. This is what you can expect with our Ultimate Packages – unlimited concierge support.
Uploaded 2 photos and pan. Please evaluate #8 and #9 in regards to a wire adjustment. Are any adjustments needed on the lower? Will be placing chain on the upper. If the occlusion keeps the space from closing, what are the options to get it closed?Treating Dentist
Wow! She looks terrific! Please make a full set of photos at next visit for me to see it all. Upper space can be closed with Space Closing Chain. When space is closed, contact on how to bend the wire for moving #9 and the lower anteriors. We have a video to help with the wire bending that will be needed. I like space closed first, bends can cause friction and stop movement. I don’t think occlusion will stop space closure. If there is not overjet and space won’t close, Class 3 elastics can solve that. Lower canines to upper first molar elastics. Thank you, and excellent work!orthobrain orthodontist
I will try to get more pictures… The space closed very fast in one month. I am ready to do the wire bend on #9 at her next visit could you send me the video for that? I might also do one on 26. Thank you!Treating Dentist
