Ortho Tx: What Happens with Ortho Tx?

1. Facial appearance can be changed.

Teeth are one of the elements that strongly influence the appearance of a face. The upper and lower teeth including the roots account for 40% of the height of the main part of the face, that is, from the eyebrow to the lower border of the mandible (lower jaw). Therefore it is easy to imagine what a big impact orthodontic tooth movement could have on the face. Facial appearance is greatly affected especially by the antero-posterior (forward or backward) and vertical (up or down) positions, inclination of the front teeth and positions of the upper and lower jaws.

Before treatment
The front teeth are protruding so much that she has difficulty closing the lips.
After treatment
The lips are nicely contoured without strain.
