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…

Since their inception, clear aligners have undergone multitude of advancements that aimed to make the orthodontic treatment less conspicuous. Used for moving teeth for alignment and creating healthy
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.

Stress relaxation properties of four orthodontic aligner materials: A 24-hour in vitro study.
TLDR
Investigation of the stress release properties of four thermoplastic materials used to make orthodontic aligners found that stress release may cause significant changes in the behavior of the polymers at 24 hours from the application of orthodentic loads, which may influence programmed tooth movement.

TLDR
In vitro aged and retrieved appliances were found to leach no traceable amount of substances in an ethanol aging solution, and Buccal segments of retrieved appliances showed an increase in hardness, which might be attributed to mastication-induced cold work.

TLDR
Adults treated with Invisalign aligners experienced less pain and fewer negative impacts on their lives during the first week of orthodontic treatment than did those treated with fixed appliances.
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.

TLDR
Align Technology uses stereolithography technology to create its reference models, making the orthodontic industry the first to bring on-demand digital manufacturing to commercial production and focusing on techniques used by Align Technology, although several other companies rely on scanning technology.

TLDR
Orthodontic appliance attractiveness varies by the following hierarchy of appliance types: alternative > ceramic > all stainless steel/self-ligating/stainless steel appliances.
