Progressive Force Concept

A single material aligner system with the same thickness for all aligners results in forces that can sometimes be too much for individual teeth, leading to an increased chance of root resorption and unpredictable movements. In TrioClear™, a combination of 1 soft and 1 hard aligners contributes around 0.6 mm tooth movement. The use of a soft aligner, to start every sequence of movement, helps to ensure that forces initially expressed are low, before finishing up the final movement with a hard aligner. The principe of alternating between soft and hard aligners ensures a perfect range of orthodontic forces. The principe of this light force and then subsequent force reactivation might be compared with the principle of leveling and alignment in fixed appliance therapy. This unique Progressive Force Concept has been proven to make orthodontic teeth movements very predictable as you will also experience.

Increased Gingival coverage

Extended gingival coverage results in a larger amount of area being covered by the aligners, particularly for teeth with short crown height. The margins of the aligners are also less visible to others, since it is placed deeper from the cervix of each tooth, making the aligners more aesthetic, particularly for patients with varying lip line positions. Studies have shown that by having the margin of the aligner covering the gingiva, it increases retention compared to clear aligners with margins following the scallop of the teeth*. Furthermore, studies have also shown that coverage of the gingival edge increases the amount of acceptable orthodontic forces. The increased gingival coverage also provides space for our technicians to apply pre-formed buttons directly, which saves chairside time and this also avoids the risk of debonding. However, we also understand that for some situations, non-gingival coverage aligners are beneficial. Therefore, TrioClear™ allows dentists to choose scalloped margin aligners when required.

Triodim Force™ Technology

Our experienced technicians can implement the TrioDim Force™ technology in any TrioClear™ case upon request (especially in refinements). Depending on the specific movement required, our dental technicians will design divots at very specific locations according to the TrioDim Force™ principles. Every divot is measured and specifically placed with special instruments to ensure their location is accurate. Below is a simple summary of the various achievable movements and their corresponding divot location.

Pre-made buttons directly on aligner

Our skilled technicians place buttons directly on TrioClear™ aligners that work with elastics and auxiliaries. Therefore, there is no risk of debonding compared to placing buttons directly onto the teeth. This reduces unnecessary patient visits and saves clinician’s chairside time. Furthermore, different biomechanics are also possible with buttons pressed higher in the gingival coverage area. For specific tooth movements, additional cutouts and engagement hooks on the aligners are also possible.

Minimum Attachments

Attachments used in other clear aligner brands take up precious clinical time as the clinician needs to apply and also reapply them when they dislodge. Furthermore, these are easily stained at times, and excessive flush on the attachments can cause poor aligner fit. With the TrioDim Force™ technology, TrioClear™ is able to use minimal attachments and yet, still generate predictable and effective results. Therefore, TrioClear™ is able to achieve an aesthetic result whilst reducing chairside time
