Pre-aligner Therapy

Bring More Clear Aligner Cases Into Your Practice

With pre-aligner therapy you can turn almost any orthodontic case into a clear aligner case. Previously complex aligner cases become moderate; moderate cases become routine; and routine cases become simple. Using pre-aligner therapy in his own practice, Dr. Duane Grummons has seen a 90% conversion rate in youth, and 80% in adults.

Pre-aligner appliances are designed to accomplish transverse width and arch length development, and create more space within the arch in preparation for smart moves® complete aligner therapy. Smooth and predictable case progress enhances your patients' experiences and success of their therapies. Facial harmony and a beautiful smile are optimized when the transverse maxillary occlusal plane, midline, chin location, and smile esthetics are emphasized.
