Dental Attachments - Why are they required?

About Course

Attachments serve several purposes in aligner therapy. The most basic function is retention. In order to fully express prescribed movements, the aligners have to be fully seated. Aligners have a flexibility that needs to be compensated when seated onto arches that require movement. The second function of attachments is to facilitate movement by changing the shape of the tooth to provide an active surface for pushing.
