Esthetics and orthodontics have always gone hand in hand. Though the concept of moving teeth using tooth positioners was introduced way back in 1945, the clear aligner therapy has gained momentum in the last two decades. Due to continuous advancements in computer technology, medical devices have become more easier to design and manufacture.
