Aligners and Teens

Aligner treatment has certainly become mainstream treatment for most orthodontists with their adult patients. For most orthodontists, teenagers represent a majority of their patient base yet remain a minority of their aligner patients. This lecture will address the advantages, disadvantages and patient selection criteria for the use of aligners in comprehensive orthodontic treatment of the teenage patient.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify appropriate malocclusions in the teenage population that can be effectively treated with aligner therapy;
  • Determine when aligner treatment is not appropriate in teenage patients;
  • Recognize and address parental concerns with prescribing aligner treatment for teenagers.
