Clear Aligners also known as invisible aligners are a type of orthodontics device that are used to align and straighten the teeth just like braces. Clear Aligners is a modern and nearly invisible method used for correcting the majority of orthodontic problems such as crooked teeth, gaps, and rotation.

Advantages of Using Clear Aligners over Traditional Metal Braces

Clear aligners are an alternative to traditional braces and are designed to help guide teeth into their proper position. Similar to braces, clear aligners use a gradual force to control tooth movement, but without metal wires or brackets. Orthodontic treatment using clear aligners is faster than traditional braces. Several advantages of using clear aligners over braces include:

  • Clear aligners are removable so it is easier to brush and floss after meals.
  • They are easier to keep clean.
  • They are comfortable and less likely to irritate gums and cheeks.

Technological Advancements in Clear Aligner Therapy Drives the Clear Aligner Market

Clear aligner therapy has radically changed with the advent of computer-aided technologies. Nowadays, companies use a 3D scan of the dental arches, an impression, or a plaster model. All tooth movement is performed digitally, and the trays are fabricated from a series of 3D-printed models. For instance,

  • In May 2022, Align Technology announced the launch of its new Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) integration feature for ClinCheck digital treatment planning software. The CBCT integration feature enables doctors to diagnose and treat a broader range of cases with Invisalign clear aligners.
  • In July 2021, 3M Oral Care announced the introduction of its Clarity Aligners Flex + Force: a new aligner system that empowers orthodontists to choose from two unique aligner materials.

Increasing Cases of Malocclusions Fuels the Demand for Clear Aligners

Malocclusion is a medical disorder where the teeth are misaligned or there is incorrect relation between the teeth of the upper and lower dental arches. The incidence of malocclusion is high with variations between various geographic regions and age groups. It is one of the most common dental problems along with dental caries, gingival disease, and dental fluorosis. Clear aligners are used in orthodontist treatment to fix malocclusion and jaw-related problems.

North America Dominates the Clear Aligner Market

From a geographical perspective, North America holds a major market share of the clear aligner market. This can be mainly attributed to the increasing R&D investment by key players, higher adoption of technologically advanced products across all age groups, and the presence of key players in the region.
