Case Commentary

Adult patient chiefly concerned with “crooked teeth”. Arch constriction, history of clenching, mild upper and lower bruxism.

Treatment Goal

Resolve narrow arches and crowding with Invisalign and OrthoPulse. Improve symmetry and decrease dark buccal corridors.

Retention Used

Upper and lower Invisalign retainers.

Analysis of Results Achieved

Patient was part of an early investigative OrthoPulse study to evaluate movement rate during Invisalign. Standard Invisalign tooth movements were used for this treatment. The patient changed aligners using OrthoPulse every 4.25 days on average compared to the standard 14-day Invisalign protocol. Archform development and alignment were successful.
