IPR Info

01.

Patients with more tougher cases will require IPR (interproximal reduction) along with their aligner therapy to achieve their desired outcome.

02.

Example, cases which involves crowded teeth cannot move easily to new positions. Slightly reducing their proximal surfaces allows a minute degree of freedom to move when the forces from aligners try to shift it to new positions.

03.

IPR can be done by using a diamond strip, single sided diamond bur or a double sided diamond bur.

04.

You can get 1, 2 or 3 mm of space after these procedures and can be exactly measured by gauges. This will unlock the previously locked teeth to move freely.

05.

The best technique to use a bur is to place it below the contact point from the buccal and travel toward the occlusal surface. For better esthetics consider entering from the lingual first. This is a minimally invasive procedure and does not cause any discomfort. Check for fully-broken contact using dental floss.

06.

Attachments are the tiny buttons on the surface of your teeth which help the aligners to get effective tooth movement. These may be created by filling light cured resin material in the aligners and then bonding them on the tooth surface.

Here are a few tips that might come handy while bonding

01.

Always begin with thorough scaling and polishing, this helps to exactly match the shade of the tooth.

02.

Cure materials only after completely seating the tray. You can do that by asking the patient to chew on cotton rolls, bilaterally.

03.

Avoid using sharps to prevent tearing of the aligner while removing the aligner after the material has set. Instead, use a broad ended scaler. Remove excess with a finishing bur or a dental floss interproximally.
