Clear aligners are a series of tight-fitting custom-made mouthpieces or orthodontic systems that are useful in correcting misaligned or crooked teeth. Clear aligners are virtually discreet and removable alternatives to braces designed around patients’ convenience and flexibility. Factors such as the growing patient population suffering from malocclusions, rising technological advancements in dental treatment, and growing demand for customized clear aligners are driving the overall market growth.

The pandemic had a positive impact on the market globally and key players recovered with high revenues in 2020 as compared to previous years. For instance, according to Dental Tribune, Align Technology sold a record 1.6 million cases of clear aligners in 2020 as compared to 1.5 million cases in 2019.

The company also stated that the adoption of Invisalign aligners by adults and teenagers increased by 36.7% and 38.7%, respectively in 2020 and the adoption of aligners among teens or younger patients was highest during the pandemic. The major factor for the growth of this marker was that people were more reluctant to go to an orthodontist’s office to get traditional teeth braces which increased the adoption of clear aligners. The advent of pandemics helped the industry prosper in terms of adoption, sales, and revenue, and this trend is expected to continue in the future.

In the advent of escalating dental disorders, advancements like 3D impression systems, additive fabrication, Nickel and Copper-Titanium Wires, digital scanning technology, CAD/CAM appliances, temporary anchorage devices, and incognito lingual braces, clear aligners are among the latest advancements that are making orthodontic treatments more efficient, predictable and effective. Dental treatments have become customized and technologies like a digital impression system like iTero by Align Technology is assisting in developing accurate and customized clear aligners systems to treat mild to moderate misalignment conditions.

These invisible aligners are developed through virtual digital models, computer-aided design (CAD-CAM), and thermoformed plastic materials like copolyester or polycarbonate plastic. Inconvenience caused by the metal and ceramic braces and the long-term gum sensitivity has caused an increased adoption of clear aligners by patients and dentists. The aligner is designed for the wearer’s comfort and is flexible. According to Dental Tribune, clear aligners technology has quickly become an increasingly popular alternative to fixed appliances for tooth straightening, since it is an aesthetically appealing and comfortable choice. Invisalign is the largest producer of clear aligners, and other brands include Clear Correct, Inman Aligner, and Smart Moves. However, factors like the high cost of clear aligners, less number of dentists in emerging areas, and limited insurance coverage for orthodontic treatments are likely to hinder the market growth.
