Aligner treatment has seen a tremendous growth in patient acceptance and clinical efficacy in recent years. However, for some complex cases that involve less predicable tooth movement, additional auxiliaries and pre-aligner treatment procedures may become necessary. This lecture will help clinicians determine if a pre-aligner phase of orthodontic treatment is required and how to design key mechanics in this phase to simplify the subsequent aligner treatment.
Determine if pre-aligner orthodontic procedures are necessary.
Describe key components to pre-aligner orthodontic treatment.
