Open bite – Front teeth don’t touch


Patient sucked her thumb as a young child. She started treatment at age 13. She had braces and a special appliance — called a crib — to retrain the tongue, for 28 months. Now she can bite the lettuce out of a sandwich.

Deep overbite – Lower front teeth bite into palate


This adult patient, age 25, required braces and jaw surgery to correct his severe overbite, with treatment taking two years. His problem could have been corrected without surgery if he had been treated before he was a teenager.

Missing lateral incisors


This patient’s lateral incisors were congenitally missing. She had braces for 20 months to move the teeth into their correct positions, then the missing teeth were replaced with bonded “Maryland” bridges.

Underbite – Lower front teeth in front of upper teeth


Patient’s underbite was causing her jaw joint discomfort and excessive wear patterns on her teeth. After about 30 months of treatment starting at age 32, she now finds smiling and chewing much easier.

Spacing of teeth


Patient was bothered by the spaces between his teeth. Braces closed the spaces and gave him an ideal bite in 24 months. Special glued-in retainers help keep the spaces closed.

Overjet – Protruding front teeth


At age ten, patient had a big overjet with the top teeth protruding beyond the bottom. She had two phases of treatment. The first helped her jaws to grow more harmoniously and the second aligned her teeth and bite. At age 13, she was proudly displaying her new smile.

Non-braces treatment


Sometimes braces are not needed to get noticeable improvements in tooth alignment. This patient was first seen at age seven for crowding of the lower permanent teeth. A procedure was performed to reduce the width of the adjacent baby teeth and the permanent incisors aligned on their own in nine months.

Phase-One


Patient’s parents were concerned about both aesthetics and the health of the erupting permanent teeth when they brought him to the orthodontist at age eight. The lower front teeth were crowded and touching the palate, and the upper front teeth were extremely displaced from their normal positions. After 12 months of Phase-One treatment with an expander and partial braces, patient’s appearance and dental function were vastly improved.

Testimonial

When I noticed my child needed braces, I went for a consult with every orthodontic practice on the west side of Madison. I chose Greater Madison Orthodontics. The consultation was just wonderful. The process was explained to me in full and I left feeling completely confident in this team.

I knew I made the correct choice at the very first appointment. My child did not like the impressions being taken. The assistants were so wonderful talking her through it, holding her hand, counting down. Anything and everything to make her more comfortable. The staff is just wonderful. They are all very friendly and great at explaining everything they are doing. The Dental Assistants continue to be awesome, they are just the best. Always a smile and a genuine concern for their patients. They are wonderful educators on care of braces. These ladies are amazing, they work, tie & apply treatment so well. Doctor Doshi is just as wonderful as her assistants. They are very caring, creative and just great at what they do. Always a smile and every question you may have is answered. My child has received 5 star care at Greater Madison Orthodontics. I wouldn’t recommend anyone else to my family and friends. My child was having discomfort with an appliance on the 4th of July. No problem! We had an awesome assistant meet us to take care of the problem, on a holiday. Client service doesn’t get any better than that. I love knowing that I can call a team member anytime for assistance.

It has been a little over a year since we started the process and my child’s teeth are looking fantastic. I cannot wait to see the final result!
