TADs Case Report pre-treatment PROFILE FRONTAL SMILING How Would You Treat this Malocclusion? Case O.Y. 26 years, 9 months I ntroductIon A 26-year-old adult Hispanic female patient presents to your office with a skeletal and dental Class II malocclusion. She is missing her mandibular first molar on the left side and the mandibular second molar on the right side. Her chief concerns are to straighten her front upper teeth and to close the spaces in the back. d IagnosIs and E tIology The patient reports that her lower left first molar and lower right second molar were extracted due to caries. 22 Her medical history is non-contributory. Extraoral examination shows no gross facial asymmetry. She has a convex soft tissue profile, competent lips at rest, and a slightly increased nasolabial angle in addition to a reduced incisal show when smiling, as her lower lip covers the incisal third of the maxillary anterior teeth. Intraorally, the patient has bilateral edentulous spaces: 11 mm on the left side and 8 to 9 mm on the right side. Her maxillary midline is coincident with her facial midline, and the mandibular midline is 2 mm to the left in relation to the facial midline. Her overbite is 4 mm and her overjet is 6 mm. She has an arch length-tooth size discrepancy of 5 mm in the PCSO BULLETIN * SUMMER 2014
