Types of Tooth Movement : Space Closure

Clear Image Aligners are extremely effective at closing minor to moderate anterior spacing. The rate of movement with space closing strategies is more conservative compared to resetting the teeth for rotational corrections due to the necessary “stretching” required of the material.

We always request the lower model when resetting the upper teeth for space closure so we can check the overbite and overjet and make sure there are no interferences with the movements.
