Aligner Material

Plastic aligner material is used to fabricate aligners using a themoform machine that forms the material over the printed models.

How to Choose

There are numerous factors to consider when selecting aligner material.



Do your research and make sure you know what you are getting each time from the plastic.




It is perfectly fine if you prefer a less expensive and more rigid plastic, but this may result in having to slow down the prescribed movements on the simulation software.




You may choose to use a more flexible material in the beginning of treatment and then a more rigid material during the detailing phase at the end. Ultimately, treat the plastic like you would your archwire.
