Preserve Your Dental Arch with Limited Orthodontic Treatment

YOUR DENTAL ARCH IS a catenary curve worth preserving. Once one tooth moves out of position with teeth contacts broken, your teeth will continue to crowd over the course of your lifetime. If left untreated, you will continue to lose your dental arch curve.

Crowding In Lower Front Teeth Is Common

Loss of dental arch form can be partially due to a natural biological process called “mesial drift”. Your teeth naturally move forward to close space where space is available. If not held in place by solid tooth contacts, your teeth will continue to crowd. This is especially true in the lower arch with your lower front teeth.

This Can Be Fixed With Orthodontic Treatment

Limited orthodontic treatment with only six anterior braces can straighten your lower teeth crowding. Your teeth can be moved back into position and held in place with a fixed retainer, a small wire on the inside of your lower front teeth.

This limited case was treated by Board Certified Orthodontist Dr. Ann Marie Gorczyca of Antioch, California. It took 20 months to complete. If you have questions about your lower teeth crowding, call us at (925) 757-9000 or visit us at
