Correcting minor clear aligner issues forever

DB ORTHODONTICS explains how three of its aligner pliers from Ixion: the torque plier, rotation plier, and retention plier, can help avoid the need for further refinements

The future is clear

The popularity of clear aligner treatments continues to grow as more patients than ever are favouring the aesthetic option over brackets.

This sparks our drive to treat more complex cases and to push the boundaries within aligner technology. Along the way, even in the simpler cases, sometimes things don’t go as planned, and during the final assessment treatment stage the usual suspects such as incomplete rotations, unexpected alignment, insufficient arch expansion or interproximal reduction (IPR) can make an appearance. In cases requiring a minor change, aligner pliers may offer a simple and convenient solution. Minimising the need for further impressions, lab time, or appointments, aligner pliers are perfect for rotations, minor tipping (torque) movements, buccal/lingual movements, extra retention on aligners and retainers where the patient has short clinical crowns, and when flat buccal and lingual surfaces are present.
