KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, Dec. 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Over a decade of experience in fabricating clear aligners has demonstrated demands in clear aligner movement have increased, and a library of materials is required for demanding movements such as in functional appliance treatment.
"Continuous improvement and striving for the best in producing innovative yet affordable aligner materials is what TRISTAR always strives for", says CEO and orthodontist Dr Reuben How. He adds, "Today, we proudly announce the launch of Tristar T – Plus material manufactured specifically for functional appliance treatment".
Tristar T- Plus is an innovative functional appliance sheet with dual shells. A hard, rigid outer layer to resists functional forces, and simultaneously a flexible inner layer performs tooth and root movement. With a total thickness of 1.8mm, appliances made with this are the first material that can combine functional appliance effects with the alignment of teeth.
Tristar T - Plus has the strength to deliver stability even in challenging circumstances. It can retain stability whilst offering relief for emerging dentition, yet also offers the opportunity for myofunctional designs such as digital lip bumpers. It creates a new standard for growth modification appliances. "The Tristar T – Plus material marks a milestone in interceptive orthodontics. For the first time, we've had reliable Broadbent staging and root movement in preparation for the emergence of permanent dentition", says Dr Stephanie Salanitri, a Paediatric Dentist practicing in Singapore who helped co-develop the material.
"With the launch of Tristar T-plus material, this effect is the world's first material with the ability to combine functional appliances with tooth movement capabilities," said Dr William Mojlip, a key launch doctor for Tristar.
