AS21B03 - Simplified Mechanics for Aligners in Treating Complex Cases

Jun 25, 2021 9:30am ‐ Jun 25, 2021 10:40am


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.

Learning Objectives:

  • Determine if pre-aligner orthodontic procedures are necessary.
  • Describe key components to pre-aligner orthodontic treatment.
  • Incorporate TADs into aligner mechanics.
