Creating Digital Functional Appliances with the T-Plus Material

After a long struggle with functional appliances and myofunctional designs that were not retentive and stable, our orthodontists and polymer scientists re-examined current off-the-shelf materials and came up with an innovative multi-layered material that resolves the past problems and opened up a new dimension of treatment for your growing patients.


Tristar T plus combines polymer science to provide a material that seemingly achieves the impossible: Gentle, root, and tooth movement from the inner surface, and a tough, impact-resistant outer surface that captures and withstands functional forces to utilize functional appliance mechanics to resolve the bite.


In this video, we will show how to design and utilize the Tristar T-Plus functional appliance material as well as a clinical case using Tristar T-Plus to treat a growing Class II Div. I. Malocclusion



Witness the result here.

The foundation behind successful tooth movement

The foundation behind successful tooth movement: Made by dentists and dental professionals:

Designed by dentists, Engineered for excellence.

The Tristar material is engineered and made to achieve only one thing: To outperform competing for aligner materials. A material made by polymer scientists in collaboration with dentists specifically to improve the science of successful tooth movement, to form the basis of a beautiful smile.

What is the Tristar difference? The secret is a composite mix of specialized thermoplastic polyurethanes and thermoplastic elastomers to ensure that your patients have the ultimate in comfort and treatment results. Tristar will always outperform single layered materials in force delivery and ultimately your patient’s end result.

Open Source. Open for Collaboration:

Unlike other manufacturers, we share information on how to improve clear aligner design and mechanics. We’re open for collaboration on how to treat the most difficult cases.

Please visit our case gallery for more information.

Safety first: Tristar does not contain Bisphenol-A or phthalate plasticizers

Tristar technology. keeps going where other materials stop. A consistently precise fit where other materials fail. Tristar T – plus opens up a world of possibilities with digital functional appliances.

How do we do this? See the following video which is a popular material. You can see that this will lead to treatment failure.

The story behind the creation of composite orthodontic clear aligner material

Clear aligner materials are revolutionary in orthodontics. However, when I began my clear aligner journey I found that they were either too expensive, or simply to brittle to deliver treatment comfortably for my patients. The main problem with single layered material is caused by material fatigue and poor stress retention. This is because the typical material made out of PET -G is very aesthetic but it cracks very easily. The plastic properties means that PET – G distorts very easily and does not return to it’s original form.

Disastrously, this means that aligners will have to be replaced, and frequent refinements have to be performed, leading to patient dissatisfaction with the process.


Plastic, by definition, has both elastic and fluid properties. It will behave like a plastic, but once distorted, at a polymer level, it will not rebound back like traditional orthodontic materials such as nickel titanium archwires.

Our solution was to look beyond the clarity of PET – G, and to search for elastic materials which could replace it. Unfortunately, these materials were not transparent or clear!

The Eureka moment came when our polymer scientists suggested the following:

The story behind the creation of composite orthodontic clear aligner material : TRISTAR-Aligner Material

To combine the material on the left, with great clarity with the material on the right, with great elasticity – but in just the right amount so that the clarity of the material isn’t compromised.

The mixture of materials – a composite of a clear material co – extruded with an elastic material is what gives rise to our new aligner material, tristar. It is thanks to the orthodontic research team, led by Dr Asma Ashari the National University of Malaysia as well as our polymer scientists that a general purpose material with excellent elastic properties yet resistant to cracking has been developed.

This material, as you will see in other articles within this site, produces excellent clinical results. We assist clinicians and clear aligner companies that are seeking excellence in their clear aligner treatment and more each day are switching to the gold standard in aligner materials, the Tristar composite sheet.
