Patient: Sarah J.
Age: 21 years old
Treatment: Braces (traditional metal)
Sarah had a moderate case of crowding and spacing issues in her upper and lower teeth. Her bite was also misaligned, which made it difficult for her to chew properly.
After a thorough examination by Dr. Carter, Sarah’s orthodontist, it was recommended that she undergo braces treatment. The treatment plan involved the use of traditional metal braces for about 18 to 24 months, followed by a retainer to maintain the results.
Sarah’s braces were installed in October 2021. At first, she experienced some discomfort and soreness, but she was able to manage it with over-the-counter pain relievers. She also had to adjust her diet to avoid hard and sticky foods that could damage the braces. Sarah visited her orthodontist every four to six weeks for adjustments and progress checks.
After 18 months of wearing braces, Sarah’s teeth were straightened, and her bite was corrected. The final result exceeded her expectations, and she was thrilled with the way her smile looked.
” My teeth are now straight, and my bite is corrected, which makes it easier to eat and speak, I’m so happy. The process was not always easy, but it was worth it. Now I can smile with confidence, and I feel more comfortable in social situations. I highly recommend braces treatment to anyone who wants to improve their smile and oral health.”
