Case selection, setting up the ClinCheck plan and clinical protocols will be illustrated with clinical cases. A research study carried out at the University of British Columbia, comparing treatment with Twin Block functional appliances and Invisalign® with Mandibular Advancement, looking at dental, skeletal and soft tissue changes will be presented.
