Efficient Hybrid Aligner Treatment: when and how to use it

We know from the literature that there are some movements that are difficult to achieve with aligners. Among these, significant root movements are probably the most difficult and sometimes aligners are not enough to achieve a satisfactory result or to reach it in a reasonable time. In these cases, the combined use with fixed lingual appliances can be the winning choice to reduce the treatment time and to achieve an optimal clinical correction. An efficient and easy to use preformed customized process will be presented in this lecture.
