What are Spark Clear Aligners?
Spark clear aligners are an orthodontic treatment designed for more efficient and effective teeth movement, compared to other leading brands. These specific aligners are only offered by Orthodontists, unlike Invisalign that is also offered to regular dentists. They are made with a new innovation, TruGEN, which appears as a clear aligner material that is basically impossible for someone to notice when wearing. Spark Aligners are made smoothly and their edges are perfected in order to avoid the occasional discomfort that can occur with other aligner brands.
Both Invisalign and Spark Aligners use patented, clear material to create aligners that are strong, durable, and invisible—there’s no question about it! While Invisalign uses SmartTrack, Spark Aligners use TruGEN™. It may seem like these materials are almost exactly the same, but they’re not.
SmartTrack aligners are comfortable and are easy to put on and take off. It is an aligner material made specially for Invisalign. They apply gentle, yet constant force against the teeth, fitting snugly while predictably straightening teeth. SmartTrack aligners have proven treatment times to be faster than braces.
Aligners made of TruGEN are also very comfortable. However, studies have shown that they are more durable and resistant to stains. Additionally, TruGEN aligners have better contact with your teeth, providing advanced force retention. Ultimately, they are stronger.
These characteristics may not all seem as important on their own, but when combined together, the characteristics of TruGen create the perfect formula for efficiency.
How does Spark work?
The custom aligners are created using 3D computer imaging technology depicting each stage from initial position to the final desired result. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks, moving the teeth incrementally until the final result is achieved.
Spark Aligners are able to treat many different issues that affect that perfect smile you are looking for such as:

How is 3D Computer Imaging Technology beneficial for each patient?
3D Computer Imaging Technology is beneficial because it allows one to produce an illusion of depth in an image, and can assist in quality control processes. Additionally, health professionals are given access to new angles, details, and resolutions when utilizing this 3D computer technology. This gives us a better understanding on how we can assist our clients, achieve patient’s smile goals and better assist with any questions or concerns.
