Young lady early 20's practised as a dancer. She had fixed braces as a teenager but never wore her retainers. The teeth relapsed forward and she was conscious of her large overjet. She did not want extractions due to her career. We examined her and suggested arch expansion and anterior retraction with Invisalign. We did some enamel adjustments near the end and after 18 months her overjet was minimal. Patient was very happy with the results and avoided extractions, jaw surgery and ridicule from her peers.
