Since patients respond with different degrees of success to aligner therapy, there are instances in which additional adjustments are needed to reach ideal alignment. Because this is not uncommon to need "refining" at the end of treatment, we offer refinement aligners to obtain the end result desired.
- Refinement aligners can only be used after an initial series of Clear Image Aligners have been worn.
- Cases requiring additional correction beyond three refinements will be graduated to a second series of aligners rather than refinements.
I have been using Clear Image Aligners since 2017, and I cannot imagine practicing without them. They allow me to detail the teeth more precisely than with wires, and the patients win by getting their braces off a few months earlier. Happy orthodontist and happy patients--definitely a Win-Win scenario!
