Clear aligners have taken the orthodontic scene by a storm. Sceptics still hurl abuses on the efficacy of clear aligner treatment. This lecture will dissect what’s facts and what is fiction with evidence-based cases. Only a practicing dentist will be able to differentiate what is the claim form the company what can be clinically achieved. Although it is not a panacea for all cases, clear aligner has certainly deserved a place in orthodontics.

  • Apply sound clinical strategy to improve the current standards in aligner therapy.
