Princess Leonor is currently in Spain enjoying her Christmas vacations and probably the only image we will have of her will be the one that starred with her sister Infanta Sofia for the traditional Christmas card pose that every year the royal family is responsible for disseminating.
This time, the King and Queen of Spain have wanted to give all the prominence to their daughters, and have chosen not to be portrayed as on other occasions. In the autumn style image, many details can be seen, among them how the treatment of Princess Leonor’s teeth is going.
The teeth of the Spanish heiress has become a topic of opinion in some Spanish media after she appeared without a mask in April. Contrary to the Infanta Sofia, who also wears braces to correct her smile, in the case of Leonor the progress has been slower.
Why is Princess Leonor missing teeth?
The Princess of Asturias suffers from hereditary agenesis. The condition is characterized by the absence of teeth due to lack of growth, caused by the absence of primordial tissue.
Last November, we reviewed an interview that the Spanish magazine ‘Semana’ made to Paula Lammers, an expert in orthodontics, the specialist revealed what is the treatment of Princess Leonor.
Paula pointed out that Leonor wears “aesthetic orthodontic brackets only in posterior sectors”. She added that possibly “they are performing a rescue of the canines (fangs) using what looks like a passive technique”.
He also added that he has treatment with a technique called sequential orthodontics.
“The upper right canine appears to be erupting on its own, but the left one has distal traction,” said Lammers
It is worth noting that the most recent image of Leonor that was released this Monday, December 12, 2022, is a photograph taken in the month of October. Likewise, the expert pointed out that in order to start seeing results, it is necessary to wait between a year and a year and a half.
