​​​​narrow lower mandible (lower jaw) corrected with Expansion without a Palatal Expander:

Total treatment time was 23 months.  We did not remove any tooth structure (no shaving/interproximal reduction) of lower teeth.  Palatal expanders and expansion screws are not effective in changing the lower jaw, but this expansion was with the use of the Damon System.  Extra time was spent to make sure that the root of the tooth that was previously so far out of place was aligned with the other teeth (we didn't just tip the tooth over - we brought the body of the tooth into position also).  Treatment was with Insignia & the Damon System.

Total expansion was about 8 mm.  Time in treatment was 20 months.  Expansion had been achieved at 13 months and treatment continued while patient wore elastics to finish bring his bite together.  The expansion achieved here was from the Damon System.  The teeth remained upright (didn't tip) and there was a change in the bone supporting the teeth (bone and teeth both moved and changed).  Treatment was with Insignia & the Damon System.  Notice how the smile is more full after treatment.
