Seating Your First Clear Aligner Tray

Sometimes, it can be a challenge to seat your first aligner tray. Below, we will provide some advice to ensure your first clear aligners delivery appointment goes smoothly. 

Path of Insertion

Just like with a crown or partial denture, it's important to find the proper path of insertion. Fortunately, plastic can be bent, so try different ways to insert the aligners by slightly twisting or rotating them. 

Practice Makes Perfect

Make sure your patient practices placing and removing the aligner while in the chair. This will ensure they will be able to do it themselves once they leave the office, increasing the chances for compliance and decreasing inbound troubleshooting calls by patients.
