The frequent orthodontic need of patients relates to relief of crowding.  Conventionally, two options exist for treatment: removable or fix appliance. However, if crowding is minor it is hard to convince patient for comprehensive treatment. Practitioner is also reluctant to plan fix orthodontics due to multiple complications of treatment mode.
In some occasion, this minor crowding is resultant of post-retention relapse. In such cases the patient can be treated with Biostar/Essix type of appliance. This procedure should be performed in conjunction with reproximation of some teeth. This presentation will provide in-depth technical steps for such treatment protocols. This is very acceptable for patients for simplicity of treatment and convenience of appliance use. Finally, the appliance may be repeated twice or three times to complete the procedure.
