Before & After Surgical Orthodontic Treatment by Dr. Randall C. Shults

OPEN BITE + LONG FACE HEIGHT

ED 

ERPre2

Ed had been wearing braces for 2 years when we first met. He did not like his smile and was unable to bite with his front teeth. In fact, Ed had one of the most significant open bites I have seen and unfortunately, conventional orthodontic treatment was not working.

​Pre-surgical orthodontic alignment of Ed’s teeth was completed with new braces. The upper and lower jaws were then surgically repositioned to correct his bite and optimize his dental and facial esthetics.
