When it comes to straightening teeth and achieving a confident smile, Invisalign and the Spark Clear Aligner System are two popular options that offer discreet and effective orthodontic treatment. Both Invisalign and Spark Clear Aligners are available through Broad Street Braces in Philadelphia, providing patients with a choice between innovative clear aligner systems. Here are some of the differences between these two options and the benefits they offer.

Invisalign Benefits

Invisalign is a well-established clear aligner system that has been widely used for orthodontic treatment for over two decades. It consists of a series of custom-made, clear plastic aligners that are worn over the teeth to gradually shift them into the desired position. Here are some key features and benefits of Invisalign:

  • Customized Treatment: Invisalign treatment begins with a digital scan or impressions of the patient’s teeth, which are used to create a customized treatment plan. Each set of aligners is precisely tailored to fit the patient’s teeth and applies gentle pressure to move them gradually.
  • Virtually Invisible: Invisalign aligners are made from clear, medical-grade plastic, making them virtually invisible when worn. This allows patients to straighten their teeth discreetly without the noticeable appearance of traditional metal braces.
  • Removable: One of the primary advantages of Invisalign is that the aligners are removable, allowing patients to eat, drink, brush, and floss comfortably without any dietary restrictions or difficulty maintaining oral hygiene.
  • Comfortable: Invisalign aligners are smooth and comfortable to wear, with no sharp edges or protruding wires that can irritate the gums or soft tissues of the mouth.
  • Effective for Various Orthodontic Issues: Invisalign can effectively address a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crowded teeth, gaps between teeth, overbite, underbite and crossbite, providing comprehensive treatment options for patients of all ages.

Spark Clear Aligners

The Spark Clear Aligner System is a newer addition to the clear aligner market, offering an alternative option for patients seeking orthodontic treatment. Similar to Invisalign, Spark Clear Aligners utilize a series of custom-made, clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth gradually. Here are some distinguishing features and benefits of Spark Clear Aligners:

  • Advanced Technology: Spark Clear Aligners utilize advanced digital technology to create precise 3D models of the patient’s teeth, allowing for highly accurate treatment planning and customization.
  • Accelerated Treatment: Spark Clear Aligners feature proprietary TruGEN technology, which is designed to accelerate tooth movement and reduce treatment time compared to traditional clear aligner systems.
  • Comfortable and Aesthetic: Like Invisalign, Spark Clear Aligners are made from clear, BPA-free plastic material, offering a discreet and comfortable orthodontic solution.
  • Removable: Spark Clear Aligners are removable, allowing for easy maintenance of oral hygiene and the ability to enjoy favorite foods without restrictions during treatment.
  • Effective Results: Spark Clear Aligners are designed to achieve predictable and effective results, helping patients achieve straighter teeth and improved smiles in a shorter period.

Both Invisalign and Spark Clear Aligners offer unique advantages and benefits, allowing patients to choose the option that best suits their needs and preferences.

I am pleased with this Orthodontist location because they are very prompt with appointments. It's never a long wait. The staff is kind and willing to fix misunderstandings quickly. They actually play relaxing music in the office. My favorite staff member is Trinh because she answers questions gracefully. Trinh always greets me with a smile. Glad I chose this dental office.

My mom received THE BEST service here. Consultations & visits were a breeze & the staff was always so kind. Their bilingual employee, Sara, was very helpful because my mom only speaks Spanish.
