OBJECTIVE To assess the scientific evidence related to the efficacy of clear aligner treatment (CAT) in controlling orthodontic tooth movement. [...] Key MethodMATERIALS AND METHODS PubMed, PMC, NLM, Embase, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Clinical Trials, Web of Knowledge, Scopus, Google Scholar, and LILACs were searched from January 2000 to June 2014 to identify all peer-reviewed articles potentially relevant to the review.Expand
Clinical Effectiveness of Using Clear Aligners in Orthodontic Treatment
TLDR
The clear aligner treatment (CAT) is effective in managing minor malocclusion and could achieve a comparable treatment outcome to that of the fixed orthodontic appliance in nongrowing patients with mild maloc inclusion. Expand
Effectiveness of clear aligner therapy for orthodontic treatment: A systematic review.
TLDR
Clear aligners may produce clinically acceptable outcomes that could be comparable to fixed appliance therapy for buccolingual inclination of upper and lower incisors in mild to moderate malocclusions but not all potential clinical scenarios have been assessed in the included studies. Expand
Periodontal health during clear aligners treatment: a systematic review.
TLDR
A significant improvement of the periodontal health indexes was revealed, in particular when CAT was compared to fixed appliances, and noperiodontal CAT adverse effects were observed in the selected studies. Expand
Efficiency, effectiveness and treatment stability of clear aligners: A systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
Shortened treatment duration and chair time in mild-to-moderate cases appear to be the only significant effectiveness of clear aligners over conventional systems that are supported by the current evidence. Expand
A comparison of treatment effectiveness between clear aligner and fixed appliance therapies
TLDR
Both clear aligners and braces were effective in treating malocclusion andClear aligners had advantage in segmented movement of teeth and shortened treatment duration, but were not as effective as braces in producing adequate occlusal contacts, controlling teeth torque, and retention. Expand
Periodontal health during orthodontic treatment with clear aligners and fixed appliances: A meta-analysis.
TLDR
Clear aligners were better for periodontal health than fixed appliances and might be recommended for patients at high risk of developing gingivitis, however, high-quality studies still are required. Expand
Treatment outcome with orthodontic aligners and fixed appliances: a systematic review with meta-analyses.
TLDR
Current evidence does not support the clinical use of aligners as a treatment modality that is equally effective to the gold standard of braces and is associated with worse treatment outcome compared to fixed appliances in adult patients. Expand
Effect of clear aligners on oral health-related quality of life: a systematic review.
TLDR
Based on currently limited information, the effect of CAT on the overall OHRQoL compared to FTA was still inconclusive, however, weak evidence supported that CAT might cause less eating disturbance than FAT. Expand
Clinical effectiveness of Invisalign® orthodontic treatment: a systematic review
TLDR
Although this review included a considerable number of studies, no clear clinical recommendations can be made, based on solid scientific evidence, apart from non-extraction treatment of mild to moderate malocclusions in non-growing patients. Expand
A systematic review of the accuracy and efficiency of dental movements with Invisalign®
TLDR
Although it is possible to treat malocclusions with plastic systems, the results are not as accurate as those achieved by treatment with fixed appliances. Expand

Long-term stability of orthodontic treatment and patient satisfaction. A systematic review.
TLDR
The scientific evidence was insufficient for conclusions on treatment of cross-bite, Angle Class III, open bite, and various other malocclusions as well as on patient satisfaction in a long-term perspective. Expand
The treatment effects of Invisalign orthodontic aligners: a systematic review.
TLDR
No strong conclusions could be made regarding the treatment effects of Invisalign appliances, and future prospective randomized clinical trials are required to support, with sound scientific evidence, the claims about Invis aligners' treatment effects. Expand
Stability of treatment for anterior open-bite malocclusion: a meta-analysis.
TLDR
Evidence on the long-term stability of the major therapeutic interventions for correcting AOB appeared to be greater than 75%, and pooled results indicated reasonable stability of both the SX and NSX treatments of AOB measured by positive OB at 12 or more months after the treatment interventions. Expand
Orthodontic Tooth Movement with Clear Aligners
TLDR
Over eight weeks, in two-week intervals, material fatigue does not play a significant role in the rate or amount of tooth movement, and subject-specific factors in tooth movement are examined. Expand
Treatment outcome and efficacy of an aligner technique – regarding incisor torque, premolar derotation and molar distalization
TLDR
Incisor torque, premolar derotation and molar distalization can be performed using Invisalign® aligners and the staging and the total amount of planned movement have a significant impact on treatment efficacy. Expand
Assessment of Invisalign treatment outcomes using the ABO Model Grading System
TLDR
Invisalign treatment when used in mild to moderate malocclusions was effective in correcting tooth alignment and buccolingual inclination; however, it had a negative effect on posterior occlusal contacts and Occlusal relationships. Expand

TLDR
Performed with aligners (Invisalign®), the resolvement of the partly severe anterior crowding was successfully accomplished and the tooth movement achieved at the end of aligner therapy (In Visalign®) to the predicted movement in the anterior region seems well predictable. Expand

TLDR
No statistical difference was observed between the 4 treatment groups, but a trend was noted with the 2-week frequency having a larger percentage of reduction in weighted PAR and AII scores, and greater extraction space closure. Expand
Invisalign® treatment in the anterior region
TLDR
Comparing casts to their corresponding digital ClinCheck® models at baseline and the tooth movement achieved at the end of aligner therapy (Invisalign®) to the predicted movement in the anterior region found the resolvement of the partly severe anterior crowding was successfully accomplished. Expand
Invisalign and traditional orthodontic treatment postretention outcomes compared using the American Board of Orthodontics objective grading system.
TLDR
In this sample for this period of observation, patients treated with Invisalign relapsed more than those treated with conventional fixed appliances. Expand
