Ree-Align Q&A

Ree-Align Q&A

1) Dentalree is not a dental lab, how are you offering Ree-Align orthodontic aligners?

  • Dentalree is not a dental lab, but we partner with an excellent dental lab – Illusion Aligners in India. Illusion Aligners has 31 years of experience, and they are the ONLY Indian brand to receive US FDA approval. Each aligner is made from premium aligner material Taglus and subjected to stringent quality checks. Ree-Align is another quality product brought to you by Dentalree.

2) What iOS scanners can you use for these aligners?

  • We accept scans from all iOS scanners, including iTero.

3) How are the Treatment Plans designed?

  • All of our Treatment Plans are designed by in-house Orthodontists using our own proprietary software.

4) What material are these aligners made of?

  • These aligners are made with Zendura FLX Multilayer material - the global industry leading material for clear aligners.

5) What are the Advantages of Zendura FLX - Multilayer material?

The Zendura FLX is a new generation material, provides several benefits:

  • Enhanced Patient Comfort: The multilayer design improves patient comfort compared to single-layer materials. It ensures a more secure fit which reduces discomfort during wear.
  • Optimized Force Distribution: With the unique multilayer construction, the material provides improved force distribution for more efficient and controlled tooth movements. Which improves treatment outcomes.
  • Faster Treatment: The enhanced force capabilities of multilayered FLX material allow for quicker treatment duration. Patients can usually change aligners every week, resulting in faster progress and overall shorter treatment times.

 Zendure-FLX is formulated in a dual-shell structure with three layers:

  • The outermost shell provides abrasion resistance, acting as a tough barrier to grinding or bruxing forces of the teeth.
  • The inner shell is tough and grips the teeth firmly to exert a firm and sustained force on the teeth and move them in a precisely controlled manner.
  • Sandwiched between the outer and inner shells, lies the central elastomeric layer which provides elasticity to the entire structure.
      The central layer prevents the aligners from getting deformed over time (which is a common disadvantage with most clear aligners, with long-term use due to repeated insertion and removal). This unique central layer allows the aligners to generate a LOWER force on initial insertion, but the elastic recovery provides GREATER tooth-moving forces over a period that is not possible with standard thermoplastic materials, creating a high-performance aligner material that is translated as positive treatment outcomes and happier patients.


6) What are the advantages of Ree-Align clear aligners?

     Like all of our products, Ree-Align aligners are high quality at a low price:

High Quality: Ree-Align is made with premium FLX Multilayer aligner material and subjected to stringent quality controls. Ree-Align aligners have high optical clarity and are super thin and are crack & stain resistant.
