Diastema and maxillary protrusion
The patient is unhappy with the presence of the space between the upper incisors (diastema) and the position of the incisors (protrusion).
During treatmentA fixed metallic bimaxillary device has been applied.
The diastema has been closed. A fixed maxillary contention has been applied. No surgical intervention on the upper lip frenum has been necessary; the contention is fixed, and left there over a longer period of time, to prevent the reopening of the space.
