At the begging of the treatment every 2 weeks but gradually changed to 1 week
This case was very challenging for me because because it was an Advanced case.
The main issue was to solve the crowding of the upper teeth and the high position of 1.2 as well correct the sagital problem.
So basically my plan was to distalize the upper arch using the 1/2 protocol and moving maximun two teeth at the time with an aesthetic beginning proclining the upper incisors. To increase the anchorage i used Class II elastics.
Also made expansion of both the upper and lower to improve the buccal corridors due to the narrow arches situation, at the same time in the first Clincheck I manage to make extrusion of 1.2.
One of the important things in my opinion in this case is the fact of taking the bite records and pictures of the initial situation by centering the mandible (centering the midlines) and setting the starting point of the treatment from this position.
In this way i reduced the number of aligners for the first stage.
The extraction of the four third molars was done before starting the treatment.
A very short phase of additional aligners was necessary to end up in a beautiful finishing and functional occlusion.
I have to recognize that her cooperation during the treatment was 10 out of 10.
