  • This treatment was completed in 17 months with 41 aligners in the upper arch and 20 aligners in the lower arch, without any additional aligners.
  • Invisalign Teen patients track better and their teeth respond more quickly to tooth movement.
  • After aligner 20, the patient changed aligners every 10 days until treatment was completed.
  • The ClinCheck was programmed to sequence the upper incisor tooth movement to first procline, then intrude, and finally to retract.
  • It is difficult to execute tooth movements in more than one plane of space.  Staging the upper incisor tooth movements carefully made the challenging tooth movements clinically predictable, and enabled us to treat the case successfully.
