Orthodontic aligner systems and the best materials to fabricate them

tru-tain aligner

Understandably, dentists and orthodontists are always on the lookout for the best materials to fabricate orthodontic aligners. There are so many options out there, but ideally, you want a material that is strong enough to withstand the forces of tooth movement and be comfortable for your patients at the same time.

Here’s why Tru-Tain’s DX aligner material works better than other types of materials. They’re made from a flexible, resilient material that allows teeth to move more quickly through space. Plus, they are strong enough to hold up against the pressure after braces.

The result? Faster tooth movement with reduced discomfort for your patient.

The soaring popularity of orthodontic aligners

Orthodontic aligners have become increasingly popular over the last 10 years. And this has led to the development of a number of different types of materials used in their fabrication. However, it can be difficult to determine which aligner materials are right for your patients.

With so many different options out there, we thought we’d break down exactly why our DX aligner material is an ideal solution for your patients.

The advantages of using DX aligner material

The DX aligner material has been developed based on an extensive examination of the dental materials market to provide clinicians with a product that offers high-quality properties, faster treatment times for patients, and is comfortable.

3 advantages of Tru-Tain DX Aligner/Retainer Material

Our unique, patented technology incorporates a number of features that stand out among other orthodontic materials. It’s more durable and long-lasting, it’s the only material that “breathes” so oral bacteria has a hard time staying on the surface, and is 20% lighter weight than other leading aligner materials. Three of the advantages of using Tru-Tain’s DX aligner material are:

1.    More durable long lasting

Our material is made from a high wear-resistant polymer called Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol or PETG for short. This means it will be more durable and last longer than aligners fabricated from ACP (amorphous calcium phosphate) or ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), such as those sold by Ormco and 3M Unitek.

The durability makes our material better suited to handle the forces exerted during tooth movement. All of this means patients get a faster treatment times and increased patient comfort.

2.    Highly resistant to bacterial penetration

Other orthodontic materials tend to contain larger pores which can trap food and bacteria and make them difficult to clean. This can lead to bad breath and other hygiene problems. It can also lead to increased tooth decay.

Our DX material is highly resistant to bacterial penetration, which helps prevent such issues arising for your patients – meaning they will be happier and healthier!

3.    Fewer bracket fractures and reduced likelihood of treatment failure

The bond strength of our material is higher than those made from PEEK (Polyether ether ketone), UHMWPE or ACP meaning fewer bracket fractures and a reduced likelihood of treatment failure.

All of this is to say that the major benefit of using DX aligner material is it can provide a better smile in less time than traditional orthodontics.
