The most recent articles on the efficacy of aligners in achieving orthodontic movement have demonstrated that this type of appliance still has some important limitations.
Nevertheless, aligners continue to grow in popularity among patients, for whom aesthetic and removable solutions are highly desirable. Traditional fixed appliances are no longer well tolerated by either adults or young patients, and it is therefore vital to find ways to meet their expectations.
In this lecture it will be shown how F22 aligners can successfully resolve simple and even complex cases. The staging, the use of vibrations for tooth movement acceleration and the means of using miniscrews alongside aligners in maxillary contraction, crowding and class II cases will be discussed. The efficacy of F22 aligners as an aesthetic solution will be demonstrated by clinical case discussion.
