Deep bite is a malocclusion that occurs in the vertical plane of space. Some degree of vertical overlapping or overbite is a normal feature of human dentition. The deep bite in the permanent dentition may be caused by inherent factors or factors acquired during the life of that dentition.
Clear aligners have increased in popularity because of their aesthetic advantages in comfort compared with conventional fixed appliances. But treating deep bites with clear aligners has been perceived as difficult due to the patient's natural biting force aiding in posterior intrusion and the need to perform difficult and less predictable vertical movements like extrusion and intrusion.

THE C.L.E.A.R. INSTITUTE was born from the need expressed by dentists to have access to quality education and personalized follow-up in connection to everything related to clear aligners. Dr Stéphane Reinhardt, director of the education program for THE C.L.E.A.R. INSTITUTE explains:
"Seeing that clear aligners aroused an increasing interest among dentists, an elaborate "in person" course program was developed and delivered to the dentists and their teams, so that they could integrate clear aligners efficiently and successfully in their day to day practice".
THE C.L.E.A.R. INSTITUTE has accompanied thousands of dentists in Canada and the United States in their understanding of clear aligners, bringing them confidence that clinical success and financial success are possible aligners in a serious, efficient and successful manner. They have confidence and now understand, thanks to THE C.L.E.A.R. INSTITUTE, that clinical and financial successes are possible with transparent aligners.
The year 2021 marks an important stage in the development of THE C.L.E.A.R. INSTITUTE with the launch of an e-learning platform to facilitate access to its courses and expertise to as many dentists as possible.
As mentioned by Dr. Reinhardt, "See it to believe it. Learn it to understand it. Use it to master it! There has never been a better time to MAKE THE MOVE !
