Molis Coaching: Molis Moment — Pre-Restorative for Chipped Teeth

As part of a special feature, we are revealing some of our case highlights normally only available to Molis Coaching Essentials members.

Often we do Invisalign to provide a straighter smile, but sometimes it actually becomes necessity as a treatment tool.

This is Richard, he came in today as a new patient. His chief complaint was two broken teeth. The front central is a little chipped. If you look at the bottom, that tooth is chipped, so he wanted those fixed.

If you look closer, you can see he has an edge to edge bite. In this situation, if I were to build up that corner with composite he would knock it off. If I did a veneer or a crown, he would chip it right off because there is no room.

We ended up doing an Invisalign scan to actually straighten out the teeth first before we fixed the chipped teeth. A great example of fixing an underlying problem for a much more impactful outcome!

Molis Coaching: Molis Moment — Breaking a Thumb Sucking Habit

Let's go over a special case, not because of what it did for the patient's teeth but because of what it did for her habit.

Camille is an interesting case because we treated her to close an open bite, but she had a habit that was hard to break. She let us know that she has been thumb-sucking since she was a child and she is 28 years old now. She tried putting things on her finger to stop the thumb sucking, such as tabasco or bitter spray that did not taste good, nothing worked.

However! having the Invisalign in and not being able to suck her thumb helped her break the habit. The Invisalign created a barrier that made it uncomfortable for her to suck her thumb. She also wanted the results of Invisalign, which helped her stop.

Camille stopped her habit from the moment she started the trays. Definitely, within the first tray (2 weeks) she would go to brush her teeth but told herself no. Now after 22 trays she does not have the urge to suck her thumb at all.

Molis Coaching: Molis Moment — Edge to Edge Bite Fix

As part of a special feature, we are revealing some of our case highlights normally only available to Molis Coaching Essentials members.

Here's a really interesting result using precision cuts, hooks, and rubber bands.

The patient is Carla. She had 18 trays and an edge-to-edge bite. We requested precision cuts and hooks to bring the top 4 to the bottom back.

After 10 trays, Carla has been wearing rubber bands just about everyday.

What a difference wearing the rubber bands can make after just 10 trays! 

Her edge-to-edge bite is gone. Going forward, Carla only needs to wear the rubber bands at night.
