About this case
Kobbe was in surgical orthodontic treatment for two years: 2014-2015. March 2016 he came on a control appointment since the brackets were removed end 2015. Let's recapitulate a bit. Kobbe presented early 2014 with a considerable open bite, not easy to treat at all. We started with the widening of the upper jaw (smile distractor - Titamed®). The widening was considerable, and the closure took 4-5 months, but meanwhile the orthodontics could go on. This is a clear advantage of the smiledistractor whith a skeletal anchorage. Finally the orthognathic surgery could go on: Le Fort I and BSSO. After the surgery, the orthodontic fine-tuning of the bite was finalised, and the result is simply amazing: A nice face, a beautiful smile, a perfect non compromised bite. In summary: an extremely happy patient.
