Currently, the orthodontist must find a better combination between two or more techniques and thus adapt them in favor of the resolution of the malocclusion.

The results were obtained in just nine months and demonstrated that it is possible to consider using this approach in more complicated malocclusions, considering the advantages and disadvantages of each technique.
