Removable dental aligners were introduced in 1945 by Kesling as a Tooth Positioner (TP Orthodontics). Clear aligners have been employed for mild to moderate orthodontic tooth movements for decades. Recent developments have increased the scope of aligner care in orthodontics increasing the interest by patients who want an esthetic option to correct their malocclusion, and orthodontists and dental care providers wishing to cater for this increased demand. The presentation will highlight the steps taken to treat patient with aligners and how to develop treatment strategies to successfully achieve your treatment objectives in addition to the clinical scope and the limitations of aligner therapy. Further, the presentation will outline differences between the various types of clear aligner technologies currently available as well as provide valuable practice pearls gained from over 15 years of experience of providing Clear Aligner therapy. The practical portion of the course will provide experience in collecting records (dental impressions and dental scanning exercises); reviewing aligner prescription workflows; Interproximal reduction exercises; and aligner attachment placement exercises.
