AS17B59A - Bending Aligners So They Work Like Wires

Apr 25, 2017 1:15pm ‐ Apr 25, 2017 2:00pm


Aligner orthodontics is about customizing the force system generated by aligners to the teeth. Orthodontists all went to university and spent many hours learning how to bend wires, but none of us have learned how to bend aligners. This lecture will teach you how to use the 3D ClinCheck Pro Software to bend aligners.

Learning Objectives:

  • Analyze the movements they see on the screen and perform the required adjustments to improve their aligner treatment results.
  • Identify the types of orthodontic movements that require the orthodontist to be prepared to modify aligners for success.
  • Explain the bio-mechanics of aligner orthodontics that occurs in their patients, and not rely on what is incorrectly perceived as a “video of moving teeth”.
