CASE 3
Sarah,     aged     12,     with     large     over     jet (horizontal    gap    between    the    upper    and lower    teeth).    There    is    also    a    chip    on    the upper    right    front    tooth    due    to    trauma (knocking    it    on    the    edge    of    a    swimming pool).   Damage   to   protruding   front   teeth   is   a common     problem     and     in     some     cases children   require   treatment   early   to   reduce the     risk     of     this     happening.     Sarah     was treated   first   with   functional   braces   and   then with    fixed    metal    braces    to    close    the    gap between    the    front    teeth.    After    the    braces were     removed     a     small     procedure     was carried    out    to    remove    the    excess    gum between   the   upper   front   teeth.   A   bonded retainer   was   placed   behind   the   front   teeth to help keep the gap closed.
