Adding attachments give aligners a better grip and more control on teeth. ArchForm comes preloaded with various attachment shapes, each specifically designed to give optimal control for moving teeth.
To add an attachment, click on the tooth you wish to add an attachment to, and then click on Attachment - On/Auto, in the right-hand panel.
Note: Auto adds an attachment if it detects more than 0.5mm of Move movement or 5 degrees of Rotate movement.
You can change the Attachment Shape by using the dropdown menu.
Slice attachment with movement controls
To move or add multiple attachments, click Edit Attachment to bring up more attachment options.
To change the position of the attachment, click on Move Attachment in the right-hand panel. Clicking and dragging the center dot on the attachment moves the attachment. To rotate the attachment, click and drag the semi-circle.
Clicking + Add Attachment adds another attachment. If you decide to remove the attachment, select the attachment you wish to remove and click - Remove Attachment.
When you are done editing your attachments, you can click Done at the bottom of the screen.
