Clear Polymer Aligner Systems
Popular with patients because of their ability to be almost invisible, clear polymer aligner systems are an orthodontic service provided by general dental practices and orthodontic specialists. Clear aligners correct moderate malocclusions as the patient progresses through a series of transparent plastic appliances to move the teeth into the desired positions. Computer modeling and 3D printing are often used to design the treatment and fabricate the models. These systems can be a great service for GPs, but it is important to obtain proper training when adding a clear aligner system to your practice.
