Table 1 Amount of planned movement

From: Treatment outcome and efficacy of an aligner technique – regarding incisor torque, premolar derotation and molar distalization

Tooth movement Possible staging* Maximal amount of movement** Mean movement/aligner** Mean staging/aligner**
Premolar Derotation w Att 2.0° 30.0° 17.8° 1.1°
Premolar Derotation w/o Att 2.0° 35.0° 20.1° 1.2°
Distalization w Att 0.25 mm 3.2 mm 2.7 mm 0.2 mm
Distalization w/o Att 0.25 mm 3.2 mm 2.6 mm 0.2 mm
Incisor Torque w Att 1.0° 28.0° 16.1° 1.2°
Incisor Torque w PR 1.0° 30.0° 15.9° 1.1°
  1. w Att. = with Attachment; w/o Att. = without Attachment; w PR = with Power Ridge.
  2. *Possible staging according to the treatment protocol of Align technology.
  3. **Amount of planned movement according to ClinCheck/the technician.
