The recent trend in orthodontics has shown an increased shift toward aligner therapy. For years, orthodontists have used fixed preadjusted appliances for orthodontic treatment. Even though fixed appliances have been highly efficient in the treatment of orthodontic malocclusions, they are not as esthetic as clear aligners. The purpose of this article is to review the staging of orthodontic tooth movement (OTM) with aligner therapy.
