Placing Attachments For Invisalign Delivery

added on: August 7, 2020

Indicated for a variety of conditions, including gapped teeth, overbite, underbite, open bite, crowded teeth, and crossbite, orthodontic aligner treatments utilize customized clear aligners to improve occlusion and straighten teeth. Popular for many reasons, aligners provide a more esthetic and functional option for patients of all ages, without using brackets, wires, or bands. Although indicated to correct several conditions, some cases require additional features to help achieve the patient’s anticipated treatment results. For those cases, some tooth movements necessary for orthodontic correction require attachments in combination with the aligner for proper tooth positioning. Designed to help the aligner tray’s grip the teeth, attachments are placed in strategic positions to help move the teeth in the specific directions planned by the dentist.
