Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 15th Dec 2021, ZEXPRWIRE, Whitesmile Clear releases Tristar thermoformable material for Orthodontic Clear Aligner Therapy Appliances. These clinically proven sheets are available for distribution to dentists, orthodontists, aligner and orthodontic manufacturers globally, and possess the necessary certification for general sales.
Whitesmile Clear, South East Asia’s largest clear aligner manufacturing company and a leading producer of clinically proven, composite thermoformable polymer plastics for orthodontic clear aligner therapy today announced the start of commercial sales of Tristar, a unique composite material engineered specifically for the fabrication of clear aligner appliances.
Studies show that the demand for clear aligner therapy continues to grow rapidly in the world and previous generations of the Whitesmile Clear aligner material were used in up to one in five clear aligner patients in South East Asia’s most competitive market, Singapore.
This latest generation of clear aligner material provides the patient with consistent comfort and force application, making the whole orthodontic treatment not only patient friendly but clinically effective.
Over a decade’s research and development as well as clinical trials on patients were involved in producing this unique, composite material. Tristar retains twice more orthodontic force after a normal wear period than a typical, single layered aligner material. This means that, alongside other aligner materials, Tristar is the new benchmark for clinical performance, patient comfort, and crack resistance.
Our world class team of polymer engineers and research scientists have collaborated to provide a material that has the best in class performance of elasticity, stress retention, durability, and clarity. The secret is the combination of composite materials – a tough polymer base mixed with elastic component layers which are consistent in dimension (for comparison, the other competing aligner material of the same class has inconsistent widths, varying by up to 0.2mm in thickness). This provides the clinician and clear aligner companies to prescribe complex tooth movements predictably to an extent that was not achievable previously.
“Tristar was developed specifically to provide orthodontic tooth movement in a region where both the demand and case complexity has increased over the past few years”, said Dr. Reuben How, founder and CEO of Whitesmile Clear. “We are the only polymer clear aligner manufacturer that places research and development – both clinically and in material sciences ahead of anyone globally and releases material for research studies at Universities within the region”
Tristar features a proprietary composite with a mix of polymer materials.
“This is a material that is not only ahead of its competition but has given me the confidence to provide great results in cases which were traditionally no – go areas for CAT (Clear aligner Therapy).” said Dr. Kathiravan Purmal, Orthodontist and Oral maxillofacial surgeon“. My patients love it because it is so flexible, which increases comfort yet remains virtually invisible. It is also economical compared to other competing materials. It is a material that really ticks all the boxes. I love what I am seeing!”.
