OVERVIEW

Ensuring optimal fit of aligners
If your patients use Munchies® every time they reinsert their aligners, the predictability of tooth movement increases significantly. The Munchies® Aligner Changeover Pack has been designed to give to patients at each aligner changeover visit at your surgery.

Convenient packs accelerates treatment
If patients always have access to multiple Munchies®, they are more likely to comply with the correct reinsertion protocol and maximize the delivery of the correct forces programmed into the aligners.

Hygienic delivery and improves compliance
At each aligner changeover visit a Munchies® Aligner Changeover Pack should be delivered with the patients’ next series of aligners, providing a hygienic and convenient delivery method.

Clinical feedback
Over the last 3 years, it has been shown that providing patients with multiple Munchies® increased likelihood of the patient using the device when required, as evidenced by greater rates of expression of tooth movement and a reduction in refinements.
