Do you have a V or a U shaped arch?
How to widen the arch and instil confidence without metal braces.
Miss M was a shy person with a poor smile but could not really afford Invisalign. She had absolutely no confidence. She hated it that her front teeth were sticking out so much.
She had moderate crowding with a narrow high upper V shaped arch, with compressed overcrowding.
She wanted to know if I could treat her with Invisalign, and I said of course.
My aim was to use the Invisalign system in sequence to gently push out the dental arch and create space for her front teeth.
We took did not want to take any upper teeth out and so we started Invisalign.
Even though she did not come as regular as we had hoped, we could start to see a change in her confidence. She was more talkative and open.
We are at the end of the initial set of Invisalign aligners and she is getting married soon. We will continue with refinements afterwards.
