Progressive orthodontic treatment

KIRSTEN ANDERSEN explains how she used aligners to correct the lower incisors and treat the intrusion of the elongated lower front tooth

FACTFILE

Kirsten Andersen is a general dentist at Envisage-Emsworth, Hampshire and Cornerways Dental Practice, West Sussex. She started the IAS Academy pathway by becoming a certiied provider of Inman Aligner in 2013, followed by the Clearsmile Aligner and Clearsmile Brace in 2016. She has also completed the IAS advanced ortho-restorative course (2016) and IAS photography and record taking course (2017). Kirsten’s passion is in aesthetic dentistry with an emphasis on minimal intervention, particularly anterior alignment orthodontics with whitening and bonding. She lives and works by the ethos: respect, responsibility and appreciation.

In April 2018, an existing but irregular patient enquired about orthodontic treatment. Her friend had pointed out that one of her lower incisors was taller than the adjacent anterior teeth and she had become conscious that the tooth had moved and was ‘pushed inwards’. She was also concerned that her teeth would move more in time.

The patient’s two adult children had previously undergone treatment with Clearsmile aligners with excellent results and she was interested in something similar. Her main goal was to align the lower incisors and treat the intrusion of the elongated lower front tooth. She also expressed interest in slightly proclining her upper centrals.
