Clear aligners, dentofacial orthopedics, physics and supercorrection prescription biomechanics. A meeting of the minds

Published:November 24, 2021DOI:https://doi.org/10.1053/j.sodo.2021.11.002
      How can more predictable finishing be achieved consistently with aligners in highly complex malocclusions? This aligner update covers a simple prescription with three differential supercorrections, dentofacial orthopedic applications with aligners, and six new aligner innovations built upon a scientific, physics-based foundation of aligner biomechanics. Here we categorize in a systemized manner the biomechanical concepts and supercorrections for aligners by applying the literature with extensive illustrations. We then complemented these principles with actual clinical treatments recruiting several other aligner experts recognized internationally for their specialized techniques and finishing.
