Attractive straight teeth give you the confidence to smile, but you also need the confidence to wear your orthodontic appliance, which the Spark Aligner system provides. Spark Aligners rectify overbite, spacing, crossbite, underbite, and overbite. The dentist will create a personalized treatment plan based on a 3D scan of the patient's teeth using Spark's proprietary software approverTM, which displays a simulation of the patient's roots based on a library of previous instances. They function by gently moving your teeth into their proper position.
Depending on your case, you'll wear each set of aligners for roughly a week before moving on to the next set. You should wear them for 22 hours daily, except for eating and brushing your teeth.
Using State-of-the-art Technology
Itero is a digital scanning system that replaces the traditional putty-like impression material. Itero uses digital scans to generate a 3-dimensional model of your teeth. This scanner uses laser technology to scan the teeth. It is more comfortable than traditional impressions, and it's faster as well. With digital impressions, there is no need for this gooey material; instead, a simple handheld sensor is used to take hundreds of photos of the mouth. This information is then translated into a 3D image of the mouth that can be viewed from all angles by the lab technician to create your customized spark aligners.
How Spark Aligners Works?
At your consultation, we will assess your oral health and discuss your cosmetic goals to determine if you are a suitable candidate for treatment. After determining your needs, we will create a customized treatment plan to help you achieve your ideal smile. Once you receive your custom aligners, you will need to wear each one for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. About every six weeks, you will switch to the next set of aligners until you've achieved the desired results.
How To Know if Spark Aligner is Right for You?
There are many factors that go into choosing the right orthodontic treatment for you, including cost, time commitment, and treatment effectiveness. But one factor that appeals to many patients is aesthetics. One of the best ways to straighten teeth discreetly is with Spark Aligners. The clear plastic trays fit over your teeth comfortably and effectively and are practically invisible to others. Some patients are even able to wear them to work and social occasions without others realizing they’re having orthodontic work done! Plus, the smooth plastic won’t irritate your cheeks or gums as traditional braces can.
When considering any dental treatment, it’s important to visit your family dentist for a comprehensive consultation. Your dentist will take x-rays and examine your mouth before recommending any specific course of action – whether that’s traditional braces or removable aligners. They will also be able to fully explain all of your treatment options and help you choose one that best fits your lifestyle and budget.
