Patient Stories: Life-Changing Orthodontic Treatments at EGil Dental

At EGil Dental in Denver, we have been dedicated to improving the oral health and confidence of our patients for years. Orthodontic treatments have been an effective solution for many of our patients eager to improve their smile. We are proud to highlight some of our success stories and the impact of our orthodontic treatments on the lives of our patients.

Orthodontic Treatments Offered

At EGil Dental, we proudly offer a range of tried and tested orthodontic procedures for our patients. These include braces, which have been a mainstay in orthodontics for decades due to their ability to treat a variety of dental issues. Invisalign is another popular option. Unlike braces, Invisalign is a more discreet method of aligning crooked teeth, gaps, and bite abnormalities.

Furthermore, EGil Dental is proud to offer cutting-edge clear aligner treatment, which offers a more transparent and comfortable solution when compared to traditional braces. In some cases, we also offer orthodontic procedures for children as young as seven, for improved results later in life.

Cheryl’s Story

Cheryl was a 35-year-old professional who had been insecure about her misaligned smile ever since she was a child. She had been too embarrassed to smile in pictures, and would sometimes go to great lengths to hide her teeth when she talked. This lack of self-confidence started to affect her personal and professional life, and she came to EGil Dental seeking help.

Upon Cheryl’s initial evaluation, we discovered that she had moderate overbite and crowding and would be a good candidate for Invisalign treatment. Cheryl’s dentist recommended this treatment for her, and she was eager to get started. We explained the treatment process to her and gave her a timeline.

After using Invisalign for a year, Cheryl’s teeth were much straighter. She couldn’t believe how much of a difference it had made in her self-confidence and personal life. She was finally able to smile with confidence and was no longer embarrassed when she spoke. Cheryl was thrilled with the results and couldn’t be happier with the care she received at EGil Dental.

Brandon’s Story

Brandon was a 12-year-old boy who had been brought to EGil Dental by his parents because they were concerned about his misaligned teeth. After an initial evaluation, we saw that Brandon had a severe open bite and severe crowding of his teeth. We recommended traditional braces for him and gave him an idea of what the treatment would be like.

Brandon was initially hesitant about getting braces, as he was worried his friends would make fun of him. After a few weeks of having braces on, he didn’t even notice them anymore. After a year of treatment, Brandon’s teeth were much straighter and his parents were ecstatic. Their self-conscious son had finally started to smile more, and they couldn’t believe what a difference it had made in his confidence. EGil Dental had not only straightened his teeth but also improved his quality of life.

Karen’s Story

8-year-old Karen had been brought to EGil Dental by her parents as they suspected her teeth hadn’t developed properly. Upon examination, we found that Karen had a crossbite and crowding. We recommended for her to start wearing a fixed expander appliance, which would help the upper jaw grow more in line with the lower jaw and allow her teeth more space to move.

For 6 months, Karen wore the expander appliance every day for 4 hours and night-time. Her parents diligently used journal to track her progress, and they were thrilled with how her teeth were moving into their correct positions. After a year of treatment, Karen’s smile was unrecognizable and her parents were so grateful for the treatment she had received.

Colette’s Story

Colette was a 27-year-old woman who had always been embarrassed about her overbite. She was too embarrassed to go on a first date or socialize with coworkers. She decided she finally wanted to work on her smile and she came to EGil Dental for an evaluation. We found that Colette had moderate to severe overbite and asked her if she would be interested in trying clear aligner treatment.

Colette was excited to try the new treatment, as she was worried about looking unprofessional in her line of work with braces. After a year of using clear aligners, Colette could not believe the change in her smile and how much more confident she felt. She was so grateful to EGil Dental for the care she received and couldn’t wait to show off her new smile.
