A Case Report

Pathological tooth migration is difficult to treat; the improvement of the periodontal condition is necessary to stop the disease; fixed appliance gives extra obstacles for oral hygiene practices. Clear aligners make no difference in brushing and flossing during the treatment but have more limitations in tooth movements especially extrusion and derotation. Careful design and flexible treatment strategies for clear aligners are crucial to treat rotated tooth complicated by pathological migrated tooth. This case report showed clear aligners could be used for derotation and extrusion.
