Initially planned for orthognathic surgery to correct her gummy smile, this patient could not secure insurance coverage for the procedure. I used four small bone screws (TADs) as anchors between her upper teeth to intrude her upper jaw over a centimeter. Total time for just the intrusion was seven months.
