Clear aligners have come a long way since first coming to the market in 1999.

But no matter how good the software, how fancy the attachments, or how advanced the material is – aligners are still made of plastic.

Therefore, aligners will always have a certain amount of flex inherent to using it as an orthodontic treatment modality.

Certain types of movements over a period of time causes varying amounts of aligner lag.

This can account for many types of incomplete movements in a treatment plan to include rotations, intrusions, and space closures.

The clinical experts at CAPS: Complete Aligner Planning Service have the experience in knowing HOW the aligners will behave in certain situations and they factor that into their Treatment Planning Optimization services.

The end results are outcomes that have generally shorter treatment times with fewer unnecessary refinements.
