Our 12-year-old patient began treatment in January 2020. He presented with a mild mouth-breathing habit, insufficient lip seal, narrow palate, and more. He had one front tooth that was bothersome, which he called his “snaggle” tooth that caught on his lip when closing his mouth. The patient also experienced nocturnal enuresis (bedwetting) and social anxiety.
During his first phase of treatment, after just five months, we achieved strong nasal breathing, competent lip seal, broader arch, and more. His “snaggle” tooth no longer caught on his lip and is in proper alignment with his other teeth. The parents stated that he was off his enuresis medication and observed a decrease in his social anxiety.
The patient isn’t even halfway through treatment yet, and we are already seeing great success!
