treatment began when he was 41.
He is a teacher in a Swiss university. Although his treatment is
now finished, he was nice enough to share his success story
says that he always had crooked teeth but never did
anything about it until he had an accident 2 years ago (he
fell in his boat and hurt his incisors).
for Sacha, his insurance paid for his entire treatment, and he
says, "My teeth are now wonderful. I've never seen such a
good medical job! I think it's ridiculous to live with crooked
teeth and not get them corrected with orthodontics. I'm very
happy, really, as YOU would be in a few months! Wonderful
experience, and super results. In fact, a few days after
braces were off, I felt sad to have teeth without all this
was not happy about speaking in front of his many students
with all that "stuff" in his mouth (at the beginning, his speech
was not 100%). "But all my students were very interested
and, for once, my situation was reversed, because, (for the majority),
they'd had orthodontic experiences BEFORE me!"
treatment lasted 20 months, and included special appliances
(you can see it in the pics): plastics segments under the arch
wire to obtain a large rotation ("Wow! The pain!"),
and acrylic splint with a ramp to maintain good occlusion
("Wow, my speech was impaired!)
