Removable orthodontic retainer to straigten teeth

This patient had a large space (diastema) between his two front teeth (central incisors). He also had a noticeable overbite.


Using only a small, removable retainer which the patient wore during sleep, his teeth were straightened and the gaps were closed in just a few months. Many patients prefer this treatment because it eliminates the need to wear unsightly metal bands. We also offer Invisalign clear braces.



Orthodontic Treatment: Details
Orthodontics can straighten teeth, improve the way teeth fit together, eliminate jaw (TMJ or CMD) problems, close spaces between teeth, eliminate crowded teeth, or even eliminate chronic headaches.


Dr. Loos can accurately reconstruct teeth using state-of-the-art computer imaging and patient photos. She can also run appearance simulations for patients to see what their smiles will look like before any work is started!

In keeping with the highest ethical standards, we have not touched-up or otherwise altered the appearance of these photographs in any way. The colors or shades thereof may appear different depending on the browser and/or monitor you use. All photos reflect cases that Dr. Kimberly Loos has personally completed.
