Contemporary dentistry has been developing new, increasingly improved treatment modalities, materials and techniques that aim to modify disharmony dental elements, providing the patient with the required aesthetic aspect without compromising function. Thus, the InvisalignTM system has been the device of choice for various types of malocclusion and in certain situations have superior results compared to conventional orthodontics, since the movements are minimally planned. The present study aimed to evaluate the results of the InvisalignTM system treatment in a patient with relapse after conventional orthodontic treatment. A 34-year-old female patient had a slightly open bite, crowding of the antero-inferior segment, slightly rotated to mesiobuccal, anterosuperior diastema and buccal incisors, and the main complaint of recurrence after two conventional orthodontic treatments. It was observed that tooth movement occurred entirely in the upper and lower arch. The open bite was corrected, the crowds were dissolved through wear and improvement of the arch shape and the anterior superior diastema was completely closed. It is concluded that the present case report presented satisfactory and effective results in relapse treatment after orthodontic treatment with InvisalignTM system.
