What Types of Aligners Do We Use At Embrace?

At Embrace Orthodontics, we use Spark and Invisalign Aligners. Both are Clear Aligners that use the most advanced technology to straighten your teeth. Here’s an overview of the two types of Clear Aligners.

Spark Aligners

Spark Aligners are made with TruGEN™, an innovative material that makes the aligners more comfortable, clearer, and less likely to stain. Spark Aligners also improve oral health by preserving gum health. And you can feel confident knowing that Spark Aligners are BPA, mercury, latex, and phthalate free.

Invisalign Aligners

Invisalign uses an iTero Element scanner to take a precise 3D digital scan of your teeth. The aligners are made from SmartTrack material, making them comfortable and easy to get in and out. Invisalign even features mandibular advancement, a great way to fix overbites in teens and tweens while straightening teeth. Precision wings gradually move the lower jaw to improve the bite and appearance of the chin.

Your orthodontist will discuss the Clean Aligner options to determine which will work best for your case.
