Abstract: The tooth positioner is a one-piece, resilient appliance which may be used for finishing orthodontic cases. The appliance fills the free-way space, and covers the clinical crowns of all the teeth and about 3-mm of the buccal and lingual gingival mucosa. The positioner is constructed over a predetermined 'set-up' and fabricated from either rubber or plastic. This article reviews the literature and describes the author's method of manufacture and usage.
