    Hi All,

    I have a patient with 13/23 in the lateral spaces (no upper laterals) and retained 53/63 posterior to the 3’s. I am wondering how well you can retract the 3’s back into the 53/63 space while maintaining correct angulation with Clear aligners.
    (Future implants for the laterals)

    Thank you

    Hi Stephen,
    Yes, this can be done.
    I suggest you need elastics off the upper 3’s to lower 6’s and 5mm vertical attachments
    Anchorage on 6’s
    Works well with Invisalign and maybe harder with DIY or SureSmile, but definitely possible
    I have had a similar case in the past and be great to share the before and after with you.
    Regards, John


    Thanks John. I have been recently experimenting a bit with SureSmile

    Freedom Dental

    Cool so am I
    I think it is a great alternative for at the very least printing models rather than investing in a 3 d printer
    How you well
