Choosing Patients For Clear Aligner Treatment

Treatment with removable braces requires patient cooperation. Since no progress can be made unless the aligners are worn as prescribed (22 hours per day), the doctor must rely on patient’s motivation and dependability for the success of the treatment.

Also patients with severely rotated teeth (teeth rotated from their normal position by more than 20 degrees), teeth that are severely tipped (teeth angled more than 45 degrees from normal), large tooth spacings, other problem situations such as severe deep overbites, skeletally based malocclusions and open bites usually are not considered as best candidates for treatment using clear aligners.
