Treatment with braces to the upper and lower teeth and the use of elastics (rubber bands) took just over 13 months. Retainers were placed the day the braces were removed. In the lower occlusal photo you see a fixed lingual wire retainer. The upper retainer was a clear plastic removable retainer.
2 years later an OPG x-ray was taken and you can see that there appears to be sufficient space for the wisdom teeth to erupt. There is a supernumerary tooth below the upper right wisdom tooth. When the wisdom teeth do erupt sometimes braces on the back teeth are needed again to straighten the wisdom teeth and to prevent a food pack.
