This young gentleman had severe crowding of his teeth. To straighten his teeth we decided to remove the upper first premolar teeth and lower second premolar teeth. As he was an actor he wanted as cosmetic a method of treatment as possible. For this reason we decided to undertake a crossover technique with lingual braces to the upper and lower anterior teeth and labial braces to the posterior teeth.

Pre Treatment

After the removal of the upper first premolar teeth and lower second premolar teeth lingual braces where placed to the upper anterior teeth and labial to the upper and lower posterior teeth to create space for the canine teeth so they can be straightened.
