Clear Aligner Therapy-Review of the Literature

Clear aligners are becoming increasingly popular as most patients, particularly adults, loathe the look of permanent equipment. To manufacture its orthodontic equipment, the business employed both computer-aided design (CAD) and computeraided manufacturing (CAM). The clear aligner, as it is now known, was introduced using this technique, which allows for numerous tooth motions from a single imprint. Initially, the technique was employed to address basic tooth movement. However, as time went on, the maker began to use attachments and intermaxillary elastics to achieve diverse motions, and it became a viable alternative to permanent equipment. The doctor should be explicit about the benefits and drawbacks of CAT, and the patient should be informed that he or she should wear the device for 22–23 hours per day and remove it only while eating.
