Case Commentary

Class I with mild class III tendency. Previous orthodontic treatment, “but did not wear retainers and teeth have shifted.” Maxilla is narrow and tapers anteriorly. In addition, an anterior open bite tendency and mild tooth size discrepancy exist. Excellent compliance. Patient progressed through 66 weeks of aligners in 30 weeks (including 6 aligners in control phase without OrthoPulse).

Treatment Goal

Align upper and lowers while improving inter-arch symmetry, decrease open bite tendency. Reassess at end of aligner series for refinement.

Retention Used

Currently in refinement to increase upper arch width and improve smile arc.

Treatment Plan

Broaden upper arch, level and align.
