Here is a small taste of Dr. Paul’s patient cases and typical results. Treatment time efficiency for the sake of dental health, as well as guidelines for ideal American Board of Orthodontics finishing, are paramount to Dr. Paul’s orthodontic practice. Dr. Paul prides himself on not letting cases go beyond 3 years for the most complex cases, and loves when cases finish ahead of schedule!
Deep overbite and excess overjet with sleep apnea risk
A year and a half later, patient reports better smile and most importantly much better bite function and maintained airway from sleep apnea risk
Patient wanted to avoid jaw surgery and hoped for any improvement. Patient had thin gums with recession and wanted to minimize further recession. Dental midlines were almost 1 cm off and patient had minimal smile display.
2 and a half years later, jaw surgery avoided, patient reports life-changing smile and perfect bite function
Patient’s concern was front teeth stick out too far, and she tries to hide her overbite (overjet). She hoped for no extractions
Less than 2 years later, No extractions needed, jaw growth fully enhanced through treatment, overjet issues corrected
Patient hoping for no extractions yet severe crowding and good lip posture
Patient became more comfortable in treatment with the benefit of extractions in his case as they were not needed right away
Over-retained baby teeth. Severe overbite, overjet, and crowding.
2 years later and patient is no longer shy but rather very social, confident, and very happy
