  • Generally, cases with some crowding is easier to treat. Therefore, elastics were not used until the very last stage for this case.
  • For this case, I separated the retraction of the canines and the incisors in order to maximize anchorage.
  • Aligners were changed weekly.
  • Elastics were used at stage 57 (last stage) using Class III elastics only on the left side for 2 months, followed by approximately 1 month of up and down elastics between upper and lower second molars on both sides. Attachments were removed at this phase.
