Contemporary Lingual Treatment with SureSmile
These days our patients demand reliable, fast therapy that is as close to invisible as possible. The lingual treatment option from SureSmile offers a perfect way for us to satisfy this demand.
A 26-year-old female patient presented for consultation as a 2nd opinion in our practice with a Class I bimaxillary inclination of both arches with severe crowding, massive wear of front teeth and a distinct deep bite. Beginning gingival recessions in the lower front with a thin gingival tissue were observed; all third molars were impacted.
Treatment took a total of 9 months, during which lingual brackets were worn for just under 8 months. This treatment was more difficult because it proved necessary to bond sequentially as an additional partial scan was necessary for the lower right lateral incisor. The mid-treatment tooth build-ups in the maxillary anterior also necessitated an additional partial scan as a ”tooth update”.
