Bracket positioning using indirect bonding can be performed in various ways. With the help of digital tools this procedure can now be performed virtually. This case report presents a hybrid approach using physical 3D-printed models to create vacuum-formed transfer trays in combination with a digital workflow in OnyxCeph3 software.

Impacted teeth can be a challenging scenario in orthodontic patients asking for ‘invisible’ treatments. Skeletal anchorage can help clinicians to overcome the limitations of aligners, making possible more predictable and efficient clinical protocols. This case report describes a ‘canine-first’ approach and the relative workflow for the orthodontic management of impacted teeth with aligners and skeletal anchorage. The approach could be very effective in adult patients who present with impacted teeth and request aesthetic orthodontic treatment options.
