Clear Aligners (Invisalign) to Correct an Anterior Open Bite

Posted on November 17th, 2021 by Dr. David J. Griffin

I recently finished treatment on a 16 year old male using Invisalign’s clear aligners only. I thought that the treatment results were phenomenal so I wanted to share.

10 years ago I would have treated this case with conventional brackets and wires, and jaw surgery only after the patient had finished skeletal growth.

Today, I would not hesitate to treat a case like this again with clear aligners. Start to finish: 18 months, 3 series of aligners.

Keys to success:

1. Unwavering compliance by a highly motivated individual.

2. Growing adolescent (Favorable growth).

3. Treatment plan.
