Choose the right plan

Note: The below treatment examples are suggestions only. The treating clinician is responsible for performing the necessary patient examinations and determining whether the patient is a suitable candidate for clear aligner treatment.

Crowding

Single arch treatment
Mild spacing
Partially close spaces followed by restorative dentistry, if necessary

Aesthetics
Treatment of both arches
Moderate spaces
Consolidate spaces followed by restorative dentistry, if necessary
Moderate IPR to retract lower for a positive overjet, retract upper to close spaces

Ortho
Severe spacing
Fully close spaces with aligners and auxiliary IPR/retract lower to create positive overjet, retract upper to close spaces
