Treatment of Deep and Open Bite with Clear Aligners without Orthognathic Surgery or Microimplants
Recent improvements in clear aligner (Invisalign) technology have made the treatment of open and deep bite more predictable and successful. Dr Boyd will show that good results can be predictably achieved by altering the treatment sequence, velocity, and types of attachments. Numerous case reports of successful treatment, periodontal response and long term stability without orthognathic surgery, plates or microimplants, will be shown.
