Innovations in Orthodontics: Skeletal Versus Dentoalveolar Expansion Utilizing Clear Aligners and TAD-Assisted Expanders
Marianna Evans, DMD; and Daniel Berant, DMD
This article discusses the limitations of aligners and dentoalveolar expansion in skeletally mature patients who require sutural expansion in addition to buccolingual tooth movement, and explains how TAD–supported 3D-printed palatal expanders, when used in conjunction with aligner therapy, can help avoid the need for bone augmentation periodontal surgery and allow for less invasive treatment in these patients.
