When is enough, enough?
Mrs Kim is a cheerful 63-year-old who has been agreeable to any treatment plan you have proposed. Her initial presentation was complex. Her maxillary left canine was extracted in adolescence; consequently, there was a significant maxillary-to-facial midline discrepancy of 4 mm. Bilateral fixed bridges have replaced the absent mandibular first molars. The patient had mild bimaxillary protrusion, with facial convexity that only slightly exceeds ethnic norms.
