More people seem to be choosing Invisalign than ever before to straighten teeth, but that doesn’t mean it’s automatically for everyone. While we’re happy to offer Invisalign at Texas Dentistry, we also provide an Invisalign alternative in Terrell for patients to consider. This includes Spark Aligners, which is an exceptional treatment that holds many similarities to Invisalign. To learn more about it, give our office a call and we’ll get you scheduled for an appointment!
Spark aligners are custom-made, transparent, and shift teeth by applying gentle pressure. Our office captures every tiny detail when it comes to your smile realignment through advanced scanning technology. This data is sent to Spark’s manufacturers, which then fabricate your aligners.
When worn over the next several months, Spark’s aligners can address a wide array of dental imperfections and concerns, including:
Each pair of aligners is worn for about 20 to 22 hours daily. After you’ve worn a pair for about two weeks, simply move on to the next pair in the set until you’ve finished wearing all of them. You’ll need to come in every several weeks or so, allowing our dentists to examine your progress.
Spark aligners carry many benefits similar to Invisalign as they are made from high-quality materials and designed to be durable. Not only can they be removed whenever you want, but you can eat your favorite foods while undergoing treatment and keep your brushing and flossing habits. Also like Invisalign, you can start to see improvements in the position of your teeth before treatment is even complete!
Of course, there are a few key differences between Spark’s aligners and Invisalign’s. Spark makes use of a unique, proprietary material called TruGEN, a plastic that is made specifically with comfort in mind. It’s also shown to be less likely to stain compared to Invisalign’s aligners and even more discreet. This is because the manufacturer that fabricates them pays special attention to making them as transparent as possible.
