Scalloped Trim Lines:

· Precision and Aesthetics

Scalloped trim lines are finely contoured to follow the natural shape of your gum-line. This precision ensures a snug fit and a seamless blend with your gums, enhancing the aesthetics of your aligners.

· better control

 Straight trim lines provide enhanced control for more complex dental adjustments often needed in teenagers cases.

The choice between scalloped and straight trim lines ultimately depends on specific case and recommendations of orthodontic professional. Making this decision the following factors are considered: shape of the gums, any previous experiences with aligners, treatment plan’s complexity.
