Case Commentary : This patient presented to the clinic with an asymmetrical smile, narrow arch form, crowding and a deep bite. Her right muscles of mastication, including the lateral pterygoid, were tender to palpation. The patient’s teeth showed evidence of bruxism.

Treatment PlanThe patient was prescribed with Invisalign® treatment to align teeth, broaden the arch form to fill buccal corridors and improve upper cuspid torque. Esthetic enameloplasty was proposed to conceal bruxism wear.

Analysis of Results Achieved :The functional and esthetic treatment goals were achieved. In addition, the muscle tightness and discomfort near the temporomandibular joint was resolved.
