No anterior open bite or high angle case has gotten worse when treated with aligner therapy. The advent of aligner therapy in orthodontics has allowed cases once thought of as challenging to manage now be looked upon as easy as a simple class 1 mild crowding case. Traditional cases once reserved for surgery and/or TADs are now more efficiently managed with aligners only while effectively managing the posterior vertical dimension without the routine side effects and concerns of traditional fixed appliances. Shift your mindset from a traditional analogue mode of thinking and delivery care to the newer digital approach of CAD-CAM-odontics with customized plastic aligners.
Identify proper design of digital tooth movement and attachments to impart the necessary forces based on a proper differential diagnosis.
Recognize the ease of delivery of such care without surgery or TADS.
Apply these principals in Phase 1 and growing teens as well as non growing adults.
