Abstract: Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign® can produce a high quality treatment outcome. As in all orthodontic methods, however, there is a steep learning curve. The most important factor is for the clinician responsible for the case to take full control when planning and working with the case using the ClinCheck software. Since aligners are removable, another important factor for treatment success is, of course, patient compliance. In moderate open bite cases, when vertical control is extremely important, in the opinion of the author, Invisalign® is now the preferred treatment choice over fixed appliance treatment.

Clinical relevance: To understand that it is possible to perform high-quality orthodontics with Invisalign®. However, to achieve good results, it is important to take full control in the ClinCheck process when planning the treatmen
