Zendura Flex: The Future of Resilient Materials
Are you seeking a clear aligner material with superior performance, exceptional durability, and unmatched patient comfort? Look no further than Zendura FLX. In this article, we will explore the key features and benefits of Zendura FLX and why it is considered the new benchmark in aligner materials.
What Makes Zendura FLX: Stand Out?
This revolutionary multilayer aligner material has taken the orthodontic industry by storm. Developed by Bay Materials, a leading polymer R&D company and now part of the Straumann Group, this material combines cutting-edge technology and advanced materials to deliver outstanding results.
One of the standout features of Zendura FLX is its unique dual-shell construction. It consists of an elastomeric inner core and a hard outer shell. This dual-shell structure provides the perfect balance of flexibility, elasticity, and strength, making it highly effective in achieving precise tooth movements.
Superior Performance and Durability
Zendura FLX is designed to deliver exceptional performance and durability. Its elastomeric inner core provides flexibility and elasticity, allowing for gentle yet continuous teeth movement force over the prescribed wear period of 7-10 days. In addition, the hard outer shell adds an extra layer of protection, ensuring that the aligner material remains resistant to deformation, even during intense teeth movements and grinding.
It generates 40% less initial force than earlier-generation aligner materials, significantly improving patient comfort. At the same time, it delivers 20% better teeth movement force over the entire wear period. In addition, even after a standard wear period, Zendura FLX retains 150% more orthodontic force than its competitors, ensuring consistent and effective treatment results.
Unmatched Patient Comfort
Patient comfort is paramount in orthodontic treatments, and Zendura FLX excels. Its flexible and elastic properties allow for a comfortable fit, making it easier for patients to insert and remove the aligners. The reduced initial force also contributes to a more pleasant wearing experience, minimizing any discomfort associated with traditional aligners.
Wide Range of Applications
Zendura FLX’s greater flexibility and elasticity open up a more comprehensive range of treatment options. It can easily accommodate engagers and treat a broader range of cases, including more complex tooth movements. This versatility makes Zendura FLX suitable for various orthodontic treatments, from mild to severe.
Stain Resistance and Clarity
Another remarkable feature of this revolutionary material is its exceptional stain resistance and clarity. The aligner material remains transparent throughout the use, providing an aesthetically pleasing appearance. Patients can confidently wear Zendura FLX aligners without worrying about discolouration or visible stains.
Long-Lasting and Safe
Zendura FLX aligners have an average lifespan of up to 5 years, ensuring they can withstand long-term treatment demands. Additionally, they are BPA, phthalate, and gluten-free, meeting the highest safety standards in orthodontic materials.
What Others Say About Zendura FLX
Dental professionals worldwide have praised Zendura FLX for its exceptional qualities. Dr. Ahmed Mansour, a respected dentist, describes it as “by far the best thermoplastic retainer material on the market.” He commends its durability, ease of use, and rare breakages.
Drs. Tony Harwell Sr., who has extensive orthodontics experience, highlights the strength, durability, and excellent fit of Zendura FLX. In addition, they attest to its superior performance and patient satisfaction.
