Spark Aligners: What are the Stages and the Refinements
Being an orthodontist is a fantastic career that allows us to engage with people and families who want to correct their smiles and bites, changing many lives in the process. Many patients seeking treatment today are asking about the possibility of using transparent aligners, even though braces are still a highly popular treatment option used in most orthodontists’ offices. One of the clear orthodontic treatments we provide is Spark Clear Aligners. One of the most common questions we get asked is the stages and refinements during treatment.
What are Spark Clear Aligners?
First, it is crucial to understand what Spark Clear Aligners are. Spark clear aligners are a new type of orthodontic treatment that uses clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth. Unlike traditional braces, Spark clear aligners are virtually invisible and can be removed for eating, drinking, and brushing. Spark clear aligners are also more comfortable than braces, and they do not require any special care or maintenance.
You wear each set of Spark clear aligners for one to two weeks before being replaced with the next set in the series. Spark clear aligners are custom-made for each patient, and the number of sets required will vary depending on the individual’s treatment plan. The average Spark clear aligners treatment takes approximately six months to complete, but some patients may require more or less time depending on their needs.
Spark clear aligners are custom-made for each patient, and a licensed orthodontist like Dr. Garrison designs the treatment plan. Spark clear aligners are available in various sizes and shaped to fit any patient’s smile.
What are the Refinements and Stages of Spark Clear Aligners?
The Spark transparent aligners system is a new, FDA-cleared orthodontic treatment that offers an alternative to metal braces. Spark clear aligners are made of a comfortable, lightweight plastic that is virtually invisible when worn. The Spark clear aligners system uses a series of clear aligners to move teeth into their desired position gradually.
Spark clear aligners are available in two stages: Spark Lite and Spark Complete. Spark Lite is the first stage of treatment and includes 30 clear aligners, also known as refinements. Spark Lite is designed for patients with mild to moderate dental problems, such as crooked or gapped teeth. Spark Complete is the second stage of treatment and includes 60 clear aligners (refinements). Spark Complete is designed for patients with more severe dental problems, such as overcrowding or crossbites. Both stages of treatment typically take six months to complete.
If you are considering Spark clear aligners, you must consult an orthodontist to see if you are a good candidate for the treatment. Spark clear aligners may not be suitable for everyone, and your orthodontist can assess your individual needs and recommend the best course of treatment.
Spark Clear Aligners Process
The first step is to schedule a consultation with our orthodontist Dr. Garrison. During the consultation, Dr. Garrison will assess your smile and discuss your treatment options with you. If Spark clear aligners are correct for you, the next step is to take impressions or a scan of your teeth. We submit these impressions to create your custom set of Spark clear aligners and when a scan is used we use top of the line technology through our Itero scanner to get complete and clear images of your teeth. Once your Spark clear aligners are ready, you will return to our office to pick them up and get started with treatment. Spark clear aligners are easy to use and require no special care or maintenance. To look into Spark clear aligners or to schedule a consultation, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our office today.
