Tristar composite aligners reduce the amount of plastic usage through more efficient tooth movement. For each aligner sheet, an efficient and effective force application reduces usage compared to single-layered materials. Up to 3 single-layered sheets are required to perform the same movement as a single sheet of composite layered material.
Tristar materials are fully recyclable. The Tristar company and it is holding parent corporations are fully committed to a sustainable future, and in particular, sustainable plastic usage. We fully encourage efforts to follow the recycling in all countries that we export to and customers in the European Union are encouraged to follow the latest directives in accordance with the relevant Certificate of European Conformity and European Union guidelines. Customers residing within the OECD and beyond should refer to guidelines stated here: https://www.oecd.org/environment
