OJW orthodontic jaw wiring least conspicuous

OJW for fashionista. The art of making the OJW as little conspicuous as possible. I provided her with two upper front clear braces on both sides and one clear brace on both sides on the lower teeth and the thinnest wire possible. We were both pleased.

    The first week of OJW: an interview with Noelle
See the "Bite-Stick" method for wiring the jaws apart

 

Noelle D. NY, NY. Occupation: Fashion world:

Ht. 5'11  Wt. 168  BMI 24  Goal Weight 140

[SPECIAL NOTE]   Anticipating that Noelle might ask for a type of OJW with the least possible visibility, I provided her with two upper front clear braces on both side and one clear brace on both sides on the lower teeth. In addition I provided her with wiring that was as thin as possible. She was very pleased, but not more than I. J

Left side with OJW

 

OJW in place on both sides; She is able to wiggle to part her teeth comfortably enough to speak clearly;  Noelle “showing” OJW through her gorgeous big smile. Not much to see. That’s the way I planned it 
 

Typical use of all metal brackets: Note the vertical posts on these brackets which allow the doctor/patient to rewire themselves even more easily. NOTE THAT THE BRACKETS BEAR A COLOR CODED DOT WHICH DISAPPEARS IN MINUTES.
