What are Spark Clear Aligners?

Spark Aligners are a nearly invisible, removable orthodontic solution to straighten teeth. The clear aligners are made with TruGen technology and are BPA, latex, mercury, and phthalate-free.

What orthodontic problems can Spark Aligners fix?

Spark Aligners treat many of the same orthodontic issues as traditional braces, including:



If there isn’t enough space for all of your teeth, they become overcrowded in your mouth. The teeth often overlap or rotate sideways. Crowding makes it difficult to clean your teeth properly.


Spacing issues

If your teeth have large gaps between them, you have a spacing issue. Too much space between teeth makes them more likely to trap food and bacteria, leading to decay.



People with a crossbite have some top teeth that fit over the bottom teeth and some that sit behind the bottom teeth when your mouth is closed. It’s a misalignment of the top and bottom arch that can contribute to issues like tooth decay or headaches.


Open bite

If your back teeth touch when your mouth is closed, but your front teeth do not, you have an open bite. Misalignment problems can cause jaw pain.



If your front teeth protrude outwards over the bottom teeth, your upper and lower teeth aren’t meeting properly. This is called an overbite, and may result in jaw pain or speech issues.



If your upper front teeth sit behind your bottom front teeth, you have an underbite. Underbites can make it difficult to bite or chew properly, contribute to speech problems, or cause pain over time.

The team at Smile Orthodontics carefully evaluates your teeth to determine if Spark Aligners can fix your orthodontic issues without braces.

What are the benefits of Spark Aligners?

It is much easier to keep your teeth and gums clean because Spark Aligners are not permanently fixed to your teeth like traditional braces. You simply remove them to brush and floss.

Spark Aligners offer a discreet orthodontic option, since they are nearly invisible. They are clearer, more stain-resistant, and more comfortable to wear than other clear aligner systems.

When you choose Spark Aligners, you don’t have to wait years for your teeth to move into position as you do with braces. The aligner design offers improved contact with the surface areas of your teeth, allowing for improved sustained force retention and faster results.

What’s included with my Spark Aligner treatment?

At your consultation, the experienced team at Smile Orthodontics takes a 3D scan of your teeth to create your custom-designed aligners. Once created, the aligners are placed in your mouth and trimmed to fit comfortably.

Your Spark Aligner treatment includes ongoing monitoring and appointments with your orthodontist from the start of your treatment until your teeth are in the proper position.
