Clear aligners are an orthodontic treatment used to move teeth to a more desired position for aesthetic and health purposes. Spark Clear aligners are custom designed and manufactured based on the patient's 3D scan and the treatment plan designed by the doctor using Spark's approval software program. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will gradually move until the final alignment is achieved. Ideally, patients should wear their Spark aligners 22 hours a day, only removing them to eat, drink, or brush their teeth.
Each set of Spark aligners is unique and pre-programmed to achieve specific dental movements. As you wear your aligners for about 22 hours a day, they'll exert a gentle, sustained force to gradually move your teeth into place. You'll switch to a new tray every week, and your smile will gradually straighten and your bite will improve. Spark Clear aligners are manufactured by Ormco, a world leader in innovative orthodontic products with 60 years of orthodontic experience, R&D and high manufacturing standards.
