THERMAL PROPERTIES OF COMMONLY USED CLEAR ALIGNER SYSTEMS AS-RECEIVED AND AFTER CLINICAL USE Louis Wenger, D.M.D. Marquette University, 2017 Background/Objectives: The purpose of this study was to investigate the thermal properties, particularly glass transition temperature, of the polymers that are used to fabricate three different types of modern orthodontic aligners. Invisalign, (Align Technology, Inc, Santa Clara, CA, USA), Simpli5 (Allesee Orthodontic Appliances, Sturtevant, WI, USA), and…

TLDR
The area of exploration of this review is limited to providing an overview of the clear aligners treatment including benefits and limitations, principles and biomechanics of clear aligner treatment, materials used, methods of fabrication, and wear time.
Dynamic mechanical and thermal properties of clear aligners after thermoforming and aging
TLDR
Thermoforming had more prominent role than aging in diminishing of thermomechanical properties in polyethylene terephthalate glycol aligners, and in general, Duran had greater thermomeschanical stability than Erkodur.

TLDR
The significant differences between as-received uncoated and coated wires from the same manufacturer indicate that these wires may perform differently in clinical situations contrary to the manufacturers’ claims.

Effects of mechanical properties of thermoplastic materials on the initial force of thermoplastic appliances.
TLDR
Orthodontic forces delivered by thermoplastic appliances depend on the material, thickness, and amount of activation, and mechanical properties of the polymers obtained by nanoindentation testing are predictive of force delivery by these appliances.
Dynamic stress relaxation of orthodontic thermoplastic materials in a simulated oral environment.
TLDR
This study studied the dynamic stress relaxation of thermoplastic materials by combination of Bose ElectroForce and a homemade temperature-controlled water bath and showed that the residual stress within all five materials decreased with time, and that this process was significantly accelerated in the 37°C water bath.
Efficacy of clear aligners in controlling orthodontic tooth movement: a systematic review.
TLDR
Assessment of the scientific evidence related to the efficacy of clear aligner treatment (CAT) in controlling orthodontic tooth movement found that it is effective in controlling anterior intrusion but not anterior extrusion; it iseffective in controlling posterior buccolingual inclination butNot anterior buccoledual inclination; and it is not effective in controls rotation of rounded teeth in particular.
