Objectives: To widespread the use of clear aligners to include cases with severe malalignment, to develop new engagers system that is applicable by patients and does not necessitate several visits to dental clinic, to help outpatients to achieve optimal benefit from clear aligner therapy with minimal office recalls and to implement new material in the clear aligners field. Methods: This is a call for participation targeting researchers in dental materials and orthodontics. The author serves as a technical coordinator at a clear aligners' company serving worldwide. In many cases, dentists ask to avoid building composite engagers on teeth as the patients are travelling outpatients and using such engagers is not applicable for them. However, these patients are dismissed as optimal results are not guaranteed without using engagers. Composite engagers have the function of better anchorage and more force precision commonly used in severe malalignment/malocclusion cases. Results: New material needs to be developed to replace composite engagers that are routinely built up by dentists at dental clinics. The author wishes to find material being applied by the patient him/herself rather than requiring several office recalls. Conclusions: This discovery should consider biocompatibility, easy attach/detach and high sustainability to masticatory forces and intraoral conditions.
