Se deben tomar impresiones cada mes al paciente, realizar la correción indicada y confeccionar dos alineadores, uno de .020"y otro de .030" de espesor . El paciente usará el alineador de .020" la primera semana y el de .030" las 3 semanas siguientes. En los casos con apiñamientos leves y mordida profunda anterior resultan particularmente efectivos. En el presente artículo se explica detalladamente el protocolo de laboratorio para la corrección de mordidas profundas anteriores.

    • "Gli aligner si sono imposti come metodica di trattamento ortodontico nel mercato americano a partire dal 1997 e in brevissimo tempo hanno conquistato gli ortodontisti d'oltreoceano: da un'indagine condotta nel 2001, oltre il 75% dichiarava di farne uso [4]. Il metodo Clear Aligner è stato messo a punto da Kim [5] in collaborazione con la Korean Society of Lingual Orthodontics (KSLO) e, contrariamente ad altri aligner proposti, non si tratta di un prodotto commerciale quanto piuttosto di una tecnica individuale che ciascun ortodontista può adottare interagendo con il laboratorio ortodontico autorizzato. "
    [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: ObjectivesTo describe indications, manufacturing methods, and use of Clear Aligner in comparison with other types of transparent masks, and the underlying advantages and disadvantages of each methodology.Materials and methodsA review of the available literature on the web and in the PubMed database was carried out. Several aligners available on the market were taken into consideration, with particular interest for the Clear Aligner method.ResultsAlthough all aligners appear to be similar in their way of working and the kind of malocclusions they can resolve, Clear Aligner approaches therapy with a different philosophy. The most popular aligners need a virtual treatment planning that cannot be modified once the therapy is started. Instead, Clear Aligner allows instad the orthodontist to progressively adapt the treatment to situations that may occur during the treatment.ConclusionsAmong all the available aligners, Clear Aligner guarantees excellent aesthetics, comfort, and progressive reevaluation. The orthodontist can modify the treatment at any time, adapting it to the specific problems of every single patient.
