Summary of Speech
Comparison of biomechanical differences and treatment efficiency of transparent plaques and lingual orthodontic treatment

Today, the aesthetic expectations of individuals who will undergo orthodontic treatment have increased greatly. They not only want to have a beautiful smile after the treatment but also do not want to compromise their aesthetics during the treatment as well. The two treatment modalities that provide optimal esthetics during the treatment are lingual orthodontics and clear aligners. However, the advantages and disadvantages of these two treatments against each other are not well known. In this presentation, the biomechanical differences of lingual orthodontics and clear aligners will be explained, and the clinical performances of these two treatment techniques in different malocclusions will be discussed.
