OBJECTIVE: To show the application of basic biomechanics concepts in orthodontic treatment with aligners of a moderate complexity case. CONCLUSION: The use of biomechanical concepts enabled the crossbite correction without using any other auxiliary mechanics.

Keywords: Aesthetic aligners. Tooth movement. Orthodontics.
