Dana’s beautiful smile required two phases of Orthodontic Treatment. She had a narrow upper jaw so her upper teeth were in cross bite with her lower teeth. This bite is sometimes uncomfortable and causes the lower jaw to shift to one side. This movement can harm the jaw joints over time. An expander gently widened her upper jaw. A few years later all of her permanent teeth had erupted and she wore full braces to complete the correction of her bite.
