The use of HFV concurrent with SmartTrack® Invisalign aligners and vertical-pull chin cup in this case series allowed achievement of complex tooth movement including posterior teeth intrusion and expansion simultaneously as well as forward mandibular rotation/projection in non-growing patients with a skeletal Class II relationship, which otherwise would have required surgery.
