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).

Before treatment

During treatment

A fixed metallic bimaxillary device has been applied.

After treatment

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.
