Invisalign Strategy # 1
Invisalign Strategy #1
Set interproximal collision to zero!
Invisalign Clear Aligner work best when there is more surface area for the aligner to “embrace” teeth and when there is no collision or tight contact between adjacent teeth. Therefore, opening up small spaces between crowded teeth improves treatment predictability. The latter can be easily accomplished by asking the technician to SET INTERPROXIMAL COLLISION TOLERANCE TO ZERO.
Addiotionally, on severely rotated teeth, I would suggest opening up 0.1 or 0.2 mm of space prior to correction rotations and only close these spaces once correction is completed.
