Increase aligner-confidence leveraging efficient biomechanics and cutting-edge technology
Aligner therapy is gaining popularity among both patients and orthodontists, with products continually advancing. As patient expectations on orthodontic treatments increase, it is essential for us to have a comprehensive understanding of the biomechanics and limitations of this approach, particularly when treating complex malocclusions. This lecture aims to elucidate the fundamental workings of aligners and how this knowledge can be implemented to achieve excellent orthodontic outcomes in challenging cases. The combination of considering patient-centered outcomes with effective biomechanical setups in aligner therapy is the foundation for successful case management, allowing practices to elevate their standard of care.
