What Are Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners were originally developed to help people with crooked teeth and other orthodontic issues. They’re made from thin, transparent plastic and custom-made for your teeth. The aligner is worn daily and gradually straightens misaligned teeth.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign braces are a type of clear aligner that is worn over the top and bottom teeth. The aligners gradually straighten teeth and can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. Traditional braces may limit food intake and make brushing difficult.

Aligners should be worn daily for 22 hours. They may need to be changed every couple of weeks for a period of time depending on the severity of your dental issue.

A common question that is asked is are Invisalign better than other aligners? In this article, we will focus on comparing Invisalign to Beam Clear aligners.

Is Invisalign Better Than Other Aligners?

To help answer if Invisalign is better than other aligners we will examine some of the advantages of Beam clear aligners as compared to Invisalign. Here are just a few:

Is Invisalign Better Than Other Aligners? Pricing:

Invisalign treatment tends to cost between $6,000-$9,000 in Australia. One of the key reasons for the extra cost is the fact that Invisalign is sold through dental networks and therefore expensive in-office appointments are required.

In comparison to Beam, clear aligners are effective and safe at-home treatment options. As a result, we can offer super quality Zendura FLX clear aligners at a fraction of the cost of Invisalign. Beam clear aligners are far more cost-effective than Invisalign at $2,149.

Therefore is Invisalign better than other aligners from a pricing perspective – the answer is no!

Is Invisalign Better Than Other Aligners? Convenience:

Beam clear aligner treatment can be completed from the comfort of your home and unlike Invisalign does not require in-office dental visits. This saves you considerable time throughout your treatment.

Therefore is Invisalign better than other aligners from a convenience perspective – the answer is no!

Is Invisalign Better Than Other Aligners? Quality:

Beam clear aligners and Invisalign aligners are not produced with the same materials. Beam clear aligners are produced with light Zendura FLX materials. Laboratory test results have shown that Zendura FLX offers the following benefits as compared to lower grade thermoplastics:

Generates 40% less initial force than earlier generation aligner materials.

20% better teeth movement force over a 7-10 day wear period.

Retains 150% more orthodontic force after a normal wear period.

300% improvement in tear strength.
