Class 3 - Crowding
When the upper teeth are inside of the lower teeth (underbite), we call the malocclusion Class III. If the problem is minimal, the objective is to achieve alignment of the upper teeth in such a way that they fit on the outside of the lowers, with the cusps “socking in” to the grooves of the opposite arch.
The treatment plan involved orthopedically widening her upper jaw, followed by braces to align upper and lower teeth with lots of rubber band to pull the upper teeth forward and the lowers back. Total Treatment time: 21 months
