As a result of ongoing digitisation, modern dentistry has changed rapidly in recent years. Most malocclusions can nowadays be treated with nearly invisible resin splints, so called aligners.
Taking impressions with an intraoral camera makes it possible to digitally simulate the patient’s individual dental situation on the computer. It also allows to simulate the progressive change over the period of treatment and makes it possible to present the patient with a digital model of the final result before the start of the treatment.
When a desired result can be realized, the splints are fabricated for each patient individually. Depending on the severity of the malocclusion, the patient wears between 15 to 30 splints over a period of 1 or 2 weeks each.
CA® CLEAR ALIGNERN treatment requires no attachments on the outside of the teeth, making the splints nearly invisible.
At the end of treatment, a very delicate retainer wire (MEMOTAIN®) is attached to the back of the anterior teeth, to hold the teeth in their new position.
