A crooked smile can take a toll on your self-confidence, leaving you embarrassed to smile or laugh. However, misaligned teeth can also be challenging to clean properly, preventing you from thoroughly removing bacteria, plaque, and bits of food when brushing and flossing. Thankfully, clear braces, such as the Spark™ Clear Aligner System, let you attain a picture-perfect grin without the look of traditional metal braces. Here’s what you should know.
A Brief Guide to Spark Clear Aligners
How do Spark clear braces work?
Spark aligners are molded to your smile and designed to slowly move your teeth over time, creating a subtle straightening effect. Compared to the leading brand, Spark aligners are made with 80% better printing resolution and 10% better contact surface area, ensuring a more uniform appearance and faster results.
How long must you wear the aligners?
Patients wear clear aligners continuously for at least 22 hours per day for the best results. The aligners are taken out when eating or brushing/flossing, and since they are removed to eat, you don’t have the same dietary restrictions that come with traditional metal braces. The total treatment length varies on a case-by-case basis.
Can people tell you’re wearing aligners?
Spark aligners are made of a smooth, clear material virtually invisible to the naked eye. The transparent TruGEN™ proprietary material is more discrete than the leading brand, letting you straighten your smile without others noticing. Spark aligners are also less prone to stains than other aligner brands, ensuring they stay clear and invisible.
How can you know if Spark aligners are right for you?
Spark aligners can be used to treat various orthodontic issues, including crowding, crossbites, and gaps between teeth. Your orthodontist can determine if you’re a candidate via a visual exam and x-rays. If Spark Aligners are a good fit for your particular case, a digital model will be created of your teeth, from which custom aligners are manufactured.
