Pursuing Excellence in Aligner Orthodontics
During the last decade there has been a substantial increase in the demand for orthodontic treatment with clear aligners. As the technique evolves through the years, the option of treating complex cases with aligners became a possibility. The constantly evolving protocols and features of the treatment planning software have increased the predictability of movements and have expanded the limitations of aligners. This is not achieved by artificial intelligence per se, but primarily by the doctor who leads the treatment.
A successful orthodontic treatment is guided by a clinician who can combine the biomechanical principles of an appliance with the physiology and function within the craniofacial complex. With aligners, it is the treatment planning software, where the clinician mostly applies the orthodontic art. Though knowledgeable treatment planning, a very precise control over the direction, magnitude and staging of the orthodontic forces delivered by the aligners can be achieved. As a result of this, aligner treatment can be very effective in most types of malocclusion, thus providing excellent treatment results.
