Elastics are elastomeric rings secured between specific points on the maxillary or mandibular arches to exert pressure and move the teeth into their desired positions. They can be intermaxillary elastics (when used between maxillary and mandibular arches) or intra-arch elastics (when used only on one arch)
An anterior open bite (AOB) is when there is a lack of vertical overlap or contact between the maxillary and mandibular anteriors when the posterior teeth are in occlusion. Whereas, a posterior open bite (POB) occurs when there is no interdigitation between the posterior teeth.
Clinical orthodontics is an ever-evolving field of dentistry with the introduction of new techniques and approaches aimed at reducing treatment duration combined with the enhanced restoration of esthetics and function.

Clear aligners have been developed and refined over the past few years to achieve desirable and optimal tooth movement. This article will shed light on the biomechanics of clear aligners and its effect on orthodontic tooth movement.
Enameloplasty, also called odontoplasty, dental contouring, tooth reshaping, or tooth stripping, is a cosmetic dentistry procedure in which a very small amount of enamel is removed or filed to change the length, shape, or surface of a tooth.
Orthodontics involves the movement of teeth within the jaw. It allows clinicians to apply mechanical forces on the teeth and attain the desired teeth positions, functionality, and aesthetics for their patients.
Over the years, clear aligners have increased in popularity owing to the comfort and esthetics they offer when compared to traditional braces. In addition, we've seen an increase in the treatment of advanced malocclusion cases, all thanks to auxiliaries like attachments and buttons!
