In this segment Dr, Mark Kleive demonstrates trimming the acrylic shell using a Scotchbrite wheel on a lathe. The lathe is an efficient and effective way to not only remove the gross excess of acrylic, but as you will see also a great tool to great the initial shape of the posterior and anterior segments of the appliance. In addition the lingual flanges can be shaped and thinned, thereby minimizing the amount of work we do with an e-cutter on a slow speed handpiece.
