StarAligners Illumina features three wave lengths of light to enhance gum health, increase circulation, and provide teeth whitening and photobiomodulation to clear aligner patients.
StarAligners Inc, the orthodontic product company and creator of StarAlignersPro, announced the launch of Illumina. The orthodontic oral therapy system incorporates three distinct wave lengths of light to assist in reducing clear aligner treatment time, as well as whiten teeth and, in some cases, reverse receding gum lines.
According to the company, Illumina offers three wave lengths of light: 450nm blue (for teeth whitening), 600nm red (for gum health), and 850nm near infrared (for facilitating tooth movement)
The StarAligners Illumina Oral Therapy device uses light-emitting diodes (LEDs) in the infrared and red spectrums that are medically proven to increase circulation, enhance gum health, increase circulation. Non-UV blue lights increase the effectiveness of whitening gels by removing tannin stains from coffee, tea, and wine, reportedly leaving whiter teeth.
The company notes in its press release that mitochondrial enzymes can absorb photons from light and increase the production of Adenosine 5′ – triphosphate ATP energy, allowing the tissues to metabolize normally. ATP production has been shown to be upregulated twofold by infrared light, also known as photobiomodulation.
The device also comes with a 1.7oz bottle of StarAligners Teeth Whitener & Aligner Cleaner foam specially formulated to work with Illumina.
“Thanks to the innovative technology of Illumina is a game-changer for patients and our business,” states John Nabors, StarAligners vice president of operations and sales. “Photobiomodulation has been around for decades, and multiple peer-reviewed articles demonstrate the efficacy of its use in accelerating clear aligner treatment. We have an exceptional device that doctors can now order for their patients or can be purchased directly from our ecommerce site.”
