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.
We have been using CIA for years now and love them! It is especially useful for relapse cases that don't want to go back into braces and don't want the high cost of brand-name clear aligner treatment. This is a great product that is extremely efficient at moving teeth, and as always, the technicians at Specialty are easy to work with to ensure good results.
