Spark Aligners vs Invisalign

Spark Aligners vs Invisalign
Posted on 02/05/2020

When searching through the market to see what your best teeth-straightening options are, you’ll find that there is an abundance of options. From traditional braces to self-ligating braces to clear dental aligners, it’s hard to determine which option is best for you. If you’re a young or mature adult, find that traditional braces are too much work, and would prefer a more subtle and laid-back treatment, then clear aligners sound like the way to go! Currently, expert Buckeye & Litchfield Park orthodontist Dr. Chris Olson uses two different variations: the well-known Invisalign aligners and the up-and-coming Spark Aligners treatment. But which one provides the best treatment? Below we discuss the major differences between these two orthodontic treatments.

SmartTrack Versus TruGEN™

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. Studies have shown that when using TruGEN™ to make orthodontic aligners, in comparison to leading competitors (including Invisalign), this material will actually create aligners that are stronger, more durable, more comfortable, and will be most resistant to stains! Although these characteristics may not seem as important on their own, together, they create the perfect formula for efficiency!

Recommended By Most Orthodontists

At the end of the day, you’ll want to choose the orthodontic treatment that most orthodontists recommend. While Invisalign and Spark Aligners are aesthetically comparable, there is one major factor that isn’t often discussed: certification of application. Did you know that Invisalign can be applied by both dentists and orthodontists alike after a weekend certification course? Spark Aligners, on the other hand, is a treatment exclusively used by orthodontists alone since Spark Aligners’ creators only trust orthodontists to execute the treatment flawlessly.
