2019 Annual Session Conference

Customizing Aligners to Move Teeth Like Wires

May 5, 2019 8:00am ‐ May 5, 2019 8:30am


Aligner bio-mechanics is different than traditional braces and wire bio-mechanics. Learn how to apply what you know in traditional orthodontics into your aligner treatments, and produce the same results you know to be correct. What you see on the screen is not an image of teeth, but a visual representation of a force system to move teeth. Orthodontists do that best! Learn to think like plastic and feel like a tooth, and customize your aligners to your patients needs.

Learning Objectives:

  • Evaluate proposed aligner treatments, and customize them for your patients' benefit.
  • Define what needs changing in your aligners to produce improved orthodontic results.
  • Define and modify aligners for movements such as anterior torque, curve of spee levelling and mesial or distal root tipping.
