Spark™ Clear Aligners

Spark Clear Aligners are an orthodontic treatment that gives you straighter teeth and an improved bite in less time than traditional braces and other aligner options. A virtually invisible approach, Spark allows patients to experience an advanced form of orthodontics that is as effective as conventional metal braces yet much less noticeable.

The Latest Innovation in Clear Aligner Technology

Although there are other clear aligners on the market, we have researched all options at Red Oak Dentistry and found that Spark Clear Aligners offer the best results and value for our patients. Spark aligners are made with TruGEN™, an innovative material that is highly durable yet more comfortable and clearer than materials used by the leading aligner brands. TruGEN is also less prone to staining, ensuring a beautiful smile throughout treatment.

Spark aligners are designed to guide teeth into their proper positions more efficiently and effectively, resulting in shorter treatment times. Rather than switching from one aligner to the next every two weeks, patients can switch to a new aligner every week in some cases ensuring straighter teeth in record time.

The Spark™ Process

Come in for a consultation with us to begin your teeth-straightening journey. We are one of the only dentists in our area to offer Spark clear aligners, and our team is highly trained to create individualized treatment plans that lead to perfectly aligned smiles.

The first step in creating your custom Spark aligners is an oral scan of your teeth and gums using our state-of-the-art Medit i700 Intraoral Scanner to create a complete 3D rendering of your mouth. We use this to create a virtual image chart of the movements of your teeth so you can see what to expect as they shift into the desired position. 

We also use these detailed images to design your treatment plan and fabricate the aligners, eliminating the need for the unpleasant use of goopy dental impressions. As a result, the aligners are more accurate and precision-fitted for your comfort.

Spark™ Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is Spark Technology?

Spark technology is an advanced orthodontic treatment that uses removable clear aligners rather than traditional metal, brackets, and wires to create your ideal smile. Convenient, comfortable, and customized, Spark aligners fit your lifestyle and enable you to regain confidence as they provide you with the straightened teeth you’ve always wanted.

How Long Do You Have to Wear Spark?

If you wear your clear aligners 20-22 hours a day, which includes sleeping, you’ll have a shorter treatment period of around a year. But the length of time for your treatment depends on your needs and the work you want done. The more consistent you are about wearing the aligners, the quicker you’ll finish treatment.

What Is the Difference Between Spark and Other Clear Aligners?

Spark aligners are made from TruGEN™, an innovative material that is clearer than the leading aligner brand and less prone to staining equating to being even more invisible than the leading aligners. The most important feature of Spark clear aligners, however, is how they fit. They are designed with smooth, scalloped edges that are more comfortable than other brands. As a result, you are more likely to wear your clear braces the recommended 22 hours a day for faster results.

How Much Does Spark Cost?

Thanks to modern technology, Spark clear aligners cost about the same as traditional metal braces. Clear aligners are no longer the more expensive route. Fewer appointments at our office are needed because we do not have to adjust your clear braces every week – you just switch to a new aligner. 

Because each patient’s case is unique, an initial consultation with Dr. King is the best way to get an accurate price. After an examination and 3D imaging, he will consider your treatment options, desired goals, and the complexity of treatment. He will review all costs upfront and help you navigate your insurance options.

What Types of Dental Problems Can Spark Correct?

Spark clear aligners are used by orthodontists to correct a wide range of teeth straightening and spacing issues, including:

  • Crowding
  • Spacing
  • Overlapping
  • Open bite
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Crossbite

How many months do you wear Spark aligners?

Most patients wear Spark aligners for a year or less, depending on the complexity and severity of the correction needed and whether they wear them 22 hours a day as recommended. If you do not wear them for 20-22 hours daily, treatment time may be longer.

How long does it take to see results?

Many patients begin to see results in as little as six weeks.
