Teen case of the month

Dr. H. Ji

We would like to thank Dr. Ji for this great case that achieved a significant reduction in his patient's overjet.

Dr. Quote: "I think that the Invisalign system is the best choice for orthodontic treatment of young patients, because it is very comfortable and predictable."
