Introduction of Innovative Clear Aligners to Boost the Market

Clear aligners are currently commanding soaring popularity among teenagers and young adults in the US, as these devices are inconspicuous and enhance dental aesthetics. Acknowledging this, several orthodontic companies in the US are strategically launching novel clear aligner solutions to gain a wider spectrum of customers. For example, in October 2020, California-based Align Technology Invisalign G8, the company’s latest biomechanics-based clear aligner product, powered by its proprietary SmartForce Aligner Activation. With this technology, dentists can better predict common orthodontic issues, as well as improve tooth movement in patients. Another innovation in this context is SmileDirectClub’s Nighttime Clear Aligners, the first-ever aligner system that straightens teeth while sleeping, which was launched in June 2019. The development of such path-breaking dental solutions is rapidly augmenting the potential of this market.

Driving Factors

Increasing Availability of Invisible Braces to Foster Market Growth

Fashionable and providing efficient dental care, invisible braces are shaping the current trends in this industry. The growing preference for these dental care solutions has encouraged some of the leading companies in this domain to engineer next-generation products and entrench their market position, resulting in increasing availability of incredible invisible braces in the US market. For example, Byte invisible aligners deliver the fastest treatment time of just two to four months, provided that the patient wears the braces for 22 hours per day and uses the company’s flagship HyperByte device. On the other hand, Candid makes available its aligner solutions only through orthodontists, who review the patient’s condition and the company designs the device accordingly. Another example is ClearCorrect aligners, which are built to cover the patient’s gums to minimize or possibly remove the need for attachment mechanisms. With the prevalence of malocclusion and teeth misalignment increasing in the US, the adoption of such braces and similar dental care solutions is likely to expand in the country over the next few years.
