Why are my patient's clear aligners flaring out?

Aligners work by deformation and tooth mismatch, and the stretching of the plastic creates a force on the teeth. On heavily crowded teeth, it is normal to see the aligners begin to flare out.


You can always trim the aligners in this area, making them more comfortable. Make sure to leave enough plastic to cover the surface of the teeth.
