With the advancing developments in every nook and corner of medical science and
dentistry, the field of orthodontics has also changed in recent years.Digital imaging
and computers have improved the diagnostic process. The introduction of prescription
brackets, bonding, NiTi and other alloy wires have improved the treatment
productivity and efficacy. Adult patients looking for orthodontic treatment are
progressively propelled by aesthetic considerations. Most of these patients reject
wearing labial fixed steel appliances and are looking rather to more aesthetic
treatment alternatives, including ceramic braces, lingual orthodontics and clear plastic
aligners. The change in perspective in orthodontics has led to the introduction of
Aligner System.
