More advanced lower teeth

Question :


My problem is that my lower teeth are more advanced compared to the upper ones!

I was wondering which appliance you would recommend. And how much does it cost approximately?

Réponse :

Class III

You are describing what seems to be a Class III malocclusion. Fixed appliances will be necessary in both upper and lower dental arches. I almost exclusively work with the self-ligating SPEED™ system.

Most of Class III malocclusions will necessitate an orthognathic surgery that could include a Le Fort I osteotomy to move the maxilla forward and a bilateral sagittal split osteotomy to move the mandible backward. However, there are some cases where the shift is not significant and may be hidden without surgery.

It is impossible to tell you how much this can cost without having seen the nature of your malocclusion.
