Clear aligner therapy improves esthetics during orthodontic care in comparison to fixed orthodontic appliances and standard removable appliances. In part due to this, the number of adults seeking orthodontic treatment has increased, and clear aligner therapy is now frequently performed on adults and adolescents. The availability of auxiliaries/composite attachments has also improved the level of control and types of tooth movements that can be attained using clear aligners. In addition, there is less risk of gingivitis, caries, and oral irritations with clear aligner therapy than is associated with fixed orthodontic appliance therapy. Clear aligner therapy involves a digital workflow for treatment planning, and is also used to enhance restorative care by providing for space/repositioning teeth to improve potential results and/or minimize the invasiveness or extent of restorative care required to achieve the desired result, and may also reduce the duration of treatment.
