Urgent question? We are here to help. This dentist wanted to follow the correct procedures prior to treating her patient the following morning. Her chat received an answer from an expert orthodontist within a few hours.

Hi – In reviewing the aligner treatment stages for patient, I see that we are to perform IPR at step 1. Do I perform the prescribed IPR after the 1st Aligner step and before the 2 aligner, OR am I to perform the required IPR before the delivery of the 1st set of aligners at our appointment tomorrow??…

Thanks for reviewing so carefully. Yes, do the IPR before seating aligner one… Generally, I like all IPR at aligner 3 if able. Or at aligner 3 and one other time during treatment. Use the hand polisher strips to make space for a disk… I am happy to speak with the Dentist before the patient appointment.

Thank you… We have all the IPR kits (hand and disk rotary we need) as well as measurement gauges so we are absolutely ready. We will follow the Aligner plan as indicated. We will reach out tomorrow with any questions or concerns. Thank you for the confirmation.
