Great Job Nick Ford !

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Congratulations to Nicholas Ford, a wonderful young man from Atlee High School in Hanover County.  Nick recently completed his Orthodontic case at the offices of Dr. Mark Freeman & Associates.  He recently had his braces removed just in time for the Holiday Season.  Nick’s case was a little different than a lot of orthodontic cases.  Nick came to us with spacing between his adult teeth:  however, his bite was very tight, and his anterior teeth were touching tip-to-tip.  The goal was to close his spaces while keeping his anterior teeth in a Class I position.

For this, we needed to begin Nick’s case on the lower arch.  It was necessary to start closing the space on the lower arch first with elastics and to keep this phase of treatment twelve weeks ahead of the upper arch.  By doing this, we would make sure that the lower arch would always be within the upper arch: and therefore, maintain the correct bite.

Nick was a great patient!   He always had the best oral hygiene and during his entire treatment he never lost a bracket or bent a wire.  He was very proud to be part of what was going on, and his cooperation helped us complete his case in 1 year and 2 months.  Nick also had no cavities when we removed his brackets!    Nick is now in his retainer system, wearing the retainers full time for the next 6 months.  Spacing cases have a tendancy to re-open if not retained properly, and Nick understands that it is up to him to wear his retainers everyday.

Great job Nick!  Everyone here at the offices of Dr. Mark Freeman & Associates always enjoyed your monthly visits, and we will miss seeing your smile so often.  Keep brushing and keep up with your retainers!
