Case Commentary

This patient presented to the clinic with an asymmetrical smile, narrow arch form, crowding and a deep bite. Her right muscles of mastication, including the lateral pterygoid, were tender to palpation. The patient's teeth showed evidence of bruxism.

Treatment Plan

The patient was prescribed with Invisalign® treatment to align teeth, broaden the arch form to fill buccal corridors and improve upper cuspid torque. Esthetic enameloplasty was proposed to conceal bruxism wear.

Analysis of Results Achieved

The functional and esthetic treatment goals were achieved. In addition, the muscle tightness and discomfort near the temporomandibular joint was resolved.
