Invisalign® continues to lead the clear aligner market, both in quality and cosmetic results. Thousands of dentists across the country trust the clear braces manufacturer to correct misaligned teeth in a predictable, safe, and effective manner. One key to Invisalign’s success is a unique patented material called SmartTrack. Invisalign’s innovative SmartTrack material is a multilayer polymer that delivers gentle and constant force and superior control over tooth movements.
SmartTrack aligner material was first commercially released in 2013, which means it already enjoys a solid nearly seven-year track record. The parent company of Invisalign, Align Technology, spent eight years researching SmartTrack technology and explored 260 different materials before finalizing the proprietary final formula. Align Technology built upon decades of expertise in biomechanics and material science when designing its current line of Invisalign products.
The material was designed specifically for orthodontic treatments. Compared to materials used by competitors, SmartTrack material more precisely fits tooth morphology, attachments, and interproximal spaces.
SmartTrack aligner material provides these proven benefits:
Gentle movements: SmartTrack material is specifically designed to deliver gentle, constant force throughout your treatment period. If you have a low threshold for pain, you can benefit from this unique feature.
Superior control: During certain phases of your treatment, your teeth will undergo complex movements. SmartTrack allows your clear aligners to maintain control so that you end up with the cosmetic results you desire.
Comfort: After a short adjustment period, you will likely stop noticing that you are even wearing aligners. The SmartTrack material snugly fits around your teeth, providing a comfortable treatment that other clear aligner companies cannot duplicate.
Speed: SmartTrack material allows Invisalign to complete orthodontics faster than traditional metal braces, up to 50 percent faster.
Predictability: Patients who undergo Invisalign treatments can benefit from predictable cosmetic results. In fact, SmartTrack delivers results that are 75 percent more predictable than competitors that use single-layer, .03mm material.
Benefits of Invisalign Treatments
Since its release in 1999, Invisalign has steadily grown in popularity. One reason why Invisalign treatments are replacing traditional metal braces is because the clear aligners are more discreet than traditional metal braces. When the clear trays are kept clean, most people will not be able to tell that you are even wearing clear braces. Invisalign trays are removable, meaning that you will be able to enjoy all of your favorite foods while undergoing this unique orthodontic treatment.
As many of our patients have found out, Invisalign treatments are more comfortable than traditional metal braces, which require frequent wire tightening.
Are Patients Ever Too Old to Undergo Invisalign Treatments?
Invisalign treatments are ideal for older teenagers and adults of all ages, including senior citizens. At Seasons of Smiles, we love placing Invisalign trays on adults who have waited decades to enjoy the benefits of a beautiful and symmetrical smile. Invisalign even makes special trays for teenagers that allows parents to monitor how long their children wear the aligner trays. During your consultation, Dr. Norman Medina will examine your teeth and gums to determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign treatments. Candidates should be in good oral health and free from gum disease.
