A teenager suffering from off-center teeth and an underbite was brought to our state-of-the-art treatment center to correct these issues. As this is a common problem we see amongst teens in the St. Louis area, we knew that braces were the right orthodontic treatment.
After all, it’s a good idea to have your child’s braces put on during young adulthood due to aesthetic and social reasons and because adjusting the teeth is easier when the bones are not yet fully developed.
With the support of his parents, Auggie began treatment with Frost Orthodontics. They were confident that Dr. Frost and his team could effectively straighten his teeth while correcting the underbite.
Here was Auggie before starting the first phase of the treatment process…
And here is Auggie after his braces were removed…
He received outstanding results after only a year and a half, and his parents couldn’t be happier! With the underbite gone, you can see all of his beautifully straightened teeth!
Fixing dental problems is more than just ensuring your child retains their self-esteem, it can also help protect against a host of chronic health problems. For example, underbites can cause speech issues, jaw pain, headaches, and tooth decay.
