Matthew joins us today to describe why refinements are inevitable in clear aligners. He outlines his process for preparing his patients for future refinements. He explains some of the key reasons to minimize refinements and tips to accomplish this. He discusses the major difference between braces and aligners. Matthew also shares why, sometimes, patients are the ones responsible for early refinements.
"We want to be efficient, but the idea of zero refinements to me is completely unrealistic." – Matthew Standridge
