Overview: Munchies® have been fabricated so that clear aligners fit as intimately as possible, increasing the likelihood that pre-programmed force systems will be delivered as accurately and efficiently as possible. This ensures that treatment will progress predictably and minimize the chance of time-consuming and costly refinements and adjustments.
Designed by a prominent expert in esthetic orthodontics and clear aligner therapy, Munchies® utilize a specifically formulated medical grade silicone with unique visco-elastic properties and anatomy that encapsulate each aligner and ensure that the morphology of the aligner does not change when seated.
Munchies® accelerate treatment not only through optimizing the fit, but also significantly increase inflammatory biomarkers that yield faster intercellular exchange.
- ૫Why use Munchies®
- Unprecedented aligner seating
Munchies® accurately seat aligners for a truly intimate fit to optimize the clinical efficacy of the in-built aligner force systems.
- Acceleration in treatment times
Continuous and targeted force systems ensure significantly enhanced tooth movement predictability.
- Inflammatory marker enhancement
Increased levels of cytokines and MMP-8 have been demonstrated when clear aligners are integrated consistently with Munchies® and Munchies® Vibe, which heightens osteoblast and osteoclast interchange.
- Orthodontic Analgesic
Use of Munchies® can provide pain and discomfort relief as effective as acetaminophen or ibuprofen after a new aligner insertion by minimizing capillary strangulation in the periodontal ligament.
- Retention enhancement
Munchies maintains the post-treatment goals as they are robust enough to push thicker clear retainers into the correct position.
- Relapse Correction
Early relapse can be reversed by judicious use of Munchies using a 22 hour per day wear protocol in tandem with retainers.
- Seating attachment templates
Strategic bilateral placement of Munchies ensures that aligner templates are completely and symmetrically seated.
- Increase intrusion predictability
Intrusion movements in clear aligner therapy remains as one of the most unpredictable. Although only 10g of consistent force is required, intimacy of aligner fit against the incisal surfaces are more critical in this movement than any other.

- ૫Further information
Each Munchies® device has an average life span of 1-2 weeks if used correctly. The product has been designed to be robust for this period and to remain visco-elastic and deliver the correct forces if not used excessively. Biting too hard or excessively will result in premature tearing of the Munchies®.
