Case Study 31 – Narrow Smiles
Treatment was with braces in the Damon System customized with Insignia. His smile was broadened to create space for his upper canines. Total treatment time was about 24 months with braces and elastics but was without removal of any teeth and was without a palatal expander. Prior to orthodontic treatment, he wore a CPAP for sleeping due to sleep apnea. His sleep apnea had reduced enough secondary to orthodontic expansion that he did not need to wear a CPAP after orthodontic treatment.
