To smile openly is very pleasant! A smile sets free and prolongs life. In all spaces of any presentations, a person dreams to smile nicely.
In this aspect, our HappyDent Clinic in Pechersk provides a sort of psychological support. We constantly make certain of how much people are transformed. Giving a new life is immensely motivating! And we are grateful to each of our patients for this opportunity to give happiness of beauty and psychological liberation.
Here, we shall cite as examples some cases with outcomes of orthodontic treatment in our clinic.
AGE of 12. TREATMENT DURATION of 11.5 MONTHS
Before treatment, her smile did not suit Yuliana at all. She complained of restraint, discomfort, and a desire to hide her teeth from the eyes of interlocutors.
WHAT WAS THERE?
1️) Strong upper and lower jaw narrowing;
2️) Pronounced teeth overcrowding;
MEAW – multiloop edgewise arch wire. We decided to apply an expander for a rapid expansion of the UJ and LJ and braces, which were later supplemented by a MEAW mechanism (multiloop edgewise arch wire) for correcting the shape of the dental arches, alignment of all teeth and normalizing occlusion.
The multiloop edgewise arch wire (or MEAW) correction technique allows to REDUCE treatment duration by HALF compared to conventional braces.
AGE of 20. TREATMENT DURATION of 6 MONTHS
Treatment performed in 3 stages:
1. Braces with MEAW. MEAW is a multiloop edgewise arch wire which accelerates the treatment process by a factor of 2, on average
2. Dental bleaching
3. Restoration (work of a therapist)
TREATMENT OF OVERCROWDING IN MACRODONTIA
AGE of 12. TREATMENT DURATION of 1.5 YEARS
I was 12-year old; I was rejected everywhere…
Yes, that was such a sad beginning of the story of the pursuit for correction of the dental abnormality in this boy.
At baseline, the patient had macrodontia (abnormal development: excessively large dimensions of several teeth) and a very small jaw. Also, at baseline, the left central chipped incisor can be observed in the patient. It was caused by a sport-related injury. The tooth stuck out and constantly hurt him. A strong teeth overcrowding was formed on both jaws. This, as you understand, had an impact not only on aesthetics, but also on occlusion. The psychoemotional state and general health may not even be talked about. The negative impact in case of such “baseline status” is evident.
On presentation at our clinic, the boy had several primary teeth left. This means that the facial growth was still amenable to correction (up to the permanent occlusion). We used this temporary opportunity and applied a special unique technique for enhanced activation of the residual growth of the upper jaw.
First: a cement-retained appliance (expander on mouthguards) and a face mask.
Then: braces and MEAW (multiloop edgewise arch wire). A fixed expander was applied on the lower jaw. During each visit, we slowly and on a scheduled basis polished the central incisors to completely bring them to the aesthetic optimum.
Patient: “I was rejected everywhere. They said: You have very large teeth and a very small jaw. Wait until everything grows; then we’ll extract the teeth and everything will fall right into place. I came to HappyDent. They applied braces with MEAW and I was cured without teeth extraction. All teeth are in place; they all are even; all is beautiful. Thank you very much for this.”
ORTHODONTICS FOR ORTHOPAEDICS
AGE of 30. TREATMENT DURATION of 1 YEAR
Look what a Hollywood smile this girl can now be proud of. Surely, the result is dazzling, conquering the most persistent aesthetic feelings… On catching sight of veneers, many people will think it’s the merit only of the prosthodontist. But!!! Everything was much more complicated! Initially, there was an incredible work of the orthodontist, who had to bring the maxillofacial area to a condition, with which the prosthodontist could already continue working
There was a lot of work to do
Baseline: malocclusion, teeth overcrowding and growth abnormality of a canine (11). It is laying horizontally inside the jaw (in the photo AFTER – one can see this very same “recovered from the depths of the gum” canine tooth (11). For this to come true, the jaw should have been expanded and shifted in correct position. For this purpose, the patient wore Mew’s bioblocks. The screws were changed three times (i.e., there were three stages of expansion). A space for the canine tooth was widened. When the space appeared, we glued the braces and began to pull the canine tooth from the jaw to the dental arch. Simultaneously, the lower jaw was expanded (in it, as you see, a tooth was absent (the second molar), which was corrected by the prosthodontist).
There was also another serious problem – the asymmetry of the smile (please see the photo in the carousel). The unevenness of the teeth caused a curved dental line that did not coincide with the centre of the upper and lower jaws and created an optical impression of facial asymmetry. Microimplants were used as supports for normalizing horizontal symmetry. The patient wore braces for 1 year
Then, the hard, high-precision work of a prosthodontist began, because the work of the orthodontist alone was not enough.
After the final stage of the prosthodontist’s work, the smile became Hollywood one.
TEETH ALIGNMENT. CORRECTION OF MALOCCLUSION
AGE of 26. TREATMENT DURATION of 10 MONTHS
Vladimir: “Since my childhood, I had crooked teeth. In addition, they were “scratched” (abrasion due to malocclusion). My lower jaw was moving backward (distoocclusion). I was concerned about the appearance (aesthetics). We live in such a world where that is of a great importance.
I spent 10 months for treatment at HappyDent in Pechersk
At baseline, there were such problems:
2) Retrusion of the upper incisors;
3) Overcrowding of the lower incisors
In treatment, a fixed appliance for UJ expansion and braces with MEAW were used.
I might choose an easier and “gentler” treatment plan. But I asked to speed up the process and was willing to endure in order to get the dentures removed as soon as possible. That’s what I said: “Let’s make the most of it!”. I regularly came for appointments, followed all recommendations. I spent 10 months for treatment! This is very fast, taking into account the deadlines that were sounded by acquaintances of mine, who put braces at other dental clinics. I was recommended HappyDent as a clinic that mastered new techniques significantly reducing the time. Actually, this was the thing that motivated me to initiate treatment most of all. Yes, this is somewhat painful. But…
But, a little patience – and seeing the result, you will not even remember that there was some discomfort. You just look ahead, smiling broadly at the new reality, at last without covering your teeth with your hand. This becomes your new life, which will take some time to get used to. You get compliments; you notice that your smile makes an unknown before impression on people. Even things are done easier. And someone can’t remove fascinated gaze from your smile…
The facial muscles work without restriction, in a new mode, stretching the smile in harmony with the feelings. There is no constant scratching in my head: I should smile more modestly, so that, God forbid, “all my crooked teeth” are not exposed.
In life, pretty much every result comes through overcoming.
Is there a will; is there a clear desire to change? Then, what to talk about? Just act.
DENTAL ARCH ALIGNMENT
AGE of 31. TREATMENT DURATION of 1 YEAR 8 MONTHS
The patient was consulted many times; each new consultation ended with the words “Your problem can be solved, but it will be required to extract 4 teeth”. This lasted until the time when Yulia came to our clinic.
We informed the patient that we were ready to settle her problem without extracting her teeth. We shall call a spade a spade; this was no easy feat. But the result was worth the emotional and physical costs.
How was she treated?
1) An expander on both jaws to expand the jugal arches;
2) Distalization of lateral teeth;
3) Correction of the position of “problematic crooked” teeth without deforming the adjacent ones.
One more victory. One more confident beautiful smile gives others positive energy.
CORRECTION OF MESIAL OCCLUSION
AGE of 11. TREATMENT DURATION of 2 YEARS
This abnormality is easily diagnosed and is one of the most obvious, visible to the naked eye. In everyday life, they say about this occlusion: “the lower jaw juts forward”. But with all the ease of diagnosis, even today not every clinic is able to competently help with this problem (please see below more details about this).
The mesial occlusion has many forms and is accompanied by various (morphological and functional) changes in the masticatory apparatus. For example, the frontal and sometimes lateral teeth of the lower jaw overlap the teeth of the upper jaw; the chin and lower lip jut forward; retrusion of the upper lip is pronounced.
Do you observe this in your child? Sound the alarm and hurry to the orthodontist to prevent impairment of facial aesthetics!
Attention! We also correct the mesial occlusion in adults (!), but to “rewind” the verticalization of the face (for example, a massive chin or a crook in the nose) is, alas, out of our power.
Don’t be late! If you neglect the “mesial dysfunction”, the proportions of the facial bones develop disharmoniously, facial aesthetics is affected. Often, in the face, the dimensions of the upper thirds of the face decrease and those of the lower third increase / become longer. In other words, the natural potential of the child’s beauty is damaged and it does not have the ability to open up to 100%
