If you are looking for a way to straighten your teeth without going through the hassle of traditional braces, then SPARK aligners may be the perfect solution for you! SPARK Aligners are a new type of aligner made from a special material that allows them to gently and effectively straighten your teeth–with a faster treatment time. 

In this blog post, we will discuss what SPARK aligners are and why they are slowly becoming the top aligner choice among orthodontists.

SPARK Aligners: The Next Generation Orthodontic Treatment

SPARK aligners are the newest aligners in the dental and orthodontic world, manufactured by Ormco™, a global leader in innovative orthodontics products, with 60 years of orthodontic expertise, R&D, and high standards of manufacture.

SPARK Aligners are virtually invisible and are even more clear than the Invisalign system. SPARK aligners are made with TruGen™ material, which studies have shown is more durable, comfortable, and less likely to stain. They also have better contact with your teeth, providing advanced sustained force retention.

Both Invisalign and SPARK aligners offer cutting-edge, 3D computer imaging technology to create your aligners. However, a SPARK aligner offers the extra touch of hand-trimmed, polished edges for maximum comfort, preventing irritation on the inside of the lips and on the gum line.

However, one significant difference between Invisalign and SPARK is often overlooked: the amount of certification required for use. Dental and orthodontic professionals can take an Invisalign weekend certification course. But that does not fly with SPARK aligners. It’s only with orthodontists that SPARK’s creators trust the treatment to be flawlessly executed since orthodontists are trained in the intricacies of teeth movement.

Benefits of SPARK Aligners

Several reasons make SPARK aligners a superior choice for those looking to straighten their teeth. First, because SPARK aligners are made with TruGen™ material, they have better durability and less risk of staining than other aligner options on the market. Second, their 3D computer imaging technology provides more precise results, and their hand-trimmed edges make them more comfortable, reducing irritation on the lips and gums.

Overall, SPARK aligners are quickly becoming the top choice for orthodontists due to their cutting-edge technology, effectiveness, and overall superior quality compared to other aligner options.

Clearer, Safer Aligners

SPARK aligners are made with TruGen™ material, which studies have shown to be more durable and less likely to stain. In addition, SPARK aligners have BPA, mercury, latex, and phthalate-free hand-trimmed edges for maximum comfort, preventing irritation on the inside of the lips and the gum line.

Reduced Orthodontic Treatment Time

Another major benefit of SPARK aligners is that they allow shorter treatment times than other aligner options. Due to their hand-trimmed surface, these aligners grip teeth more effectively for fast, reliable tooth movement. Reduced treatment time can be especially beneficial for those with busy schedules or looking to straighten their teeth as quickly as possible. With SPARK aligners, you can see results in as little as 12 weeks!

For SPARK aligners to provide the most effective and efficient patient treatment, the aligner needs to be worn 22 hours a day for 1-2 weeks. Ideally, patients should only take out their aligners to eat or brush.

The length of your treatment will depend on the severity of your condition, although most patients see results after just a few months!

How Much Do SPARK Aligners Cost?

Although their price ranges from $3,500 to $8,000, the cost of SPARK aligners depends on a variety of factors, including case complexity, treatment duration, and insurance coverage.
