Endooral views on day of placement of Optimax Lab
Endooral views at 8 months. Class I has been achieved. Maxillary levelling has begun while the extrusion of the lateral segments will be managed by Optimax Lab worn at night.
Endooral views at 8 months. The optimizer is worn in the evening and at night. Optimax Lab and a multibracket appliance can be worn together.
At 1 year, the mandibular arch is loaded. Optimax Lab is discontinued.
Final phase of multibracket treatment. Finetuning of the occlusion using intermaxillary elastics. Closure of the residual spaces with elastomeric modules.
End-of-treatment occlusion. Treatment duration: 22 months.
General balance of the face at end of the treatment
Superimposition of the soft tissue profiles at beginning and end of treatment.
End-of-treatment skeletal balance. The skeletal Class I is almost perfect. Some mandibular protrusion subsists. The axis of the maxillary incisors is sub-normal.
Overall superimposition. Mandibular response has been good.
Dental superimpositions. No loss of control of the mandibular incisors. The maxillary incisors have been given palatal root torque.
