Early Treatment Examples

Some orthodontic problems are best addressed early. These are some examples of when Dr. Beckwith and our Mountain View Orthodontics team have used early interceptive orthodontic treatment  to achieve superior results.

Our “Smiling Faces” sample books and video presentation in the reception area have hundreds of before and after photographs of patients that we have treated in our office. Don’t be surprised if you see pictures of someone that you know!


Very severe crowding with narrow smile and severe open bite (the front teeth do not overlap the lower as they should to hide the tongue).

Upper front teeth fitting behind the lower front teeth causing receding gum tissue on the lower right front tooth. Note how the receding gum tissue actually improved and how the midlines between the center front teeth now match.



…from a cute smile to a wow smile!
