Precision Aligner Buttons®
The Only Bondable Buttons Specifically Designed for Clear Aligners
Orthodontists routinely use rubber bands with clear aligners to correct malocclusions. However, we've been attaching the elastics with components created for braces—not aligners.
These auxiliaries often debond or cause irritation because they have a small surface area and are intended for the center of the clinical crown.
As orthodontists ourselves, we envisioned a new type of button that could fit within the aligner cutout windows, like a puzzle piece.
A Perfect Match for Your Practice
First introduced by MidAtlantic Ortho (MAO), DynaFlex® is now the exclusive North American distributor for Precision Buttons®.
Whether you treat using Invisalign®, 3M™ Clarity™, SmileShare™ Clear Aligners or any other aligner system—our patented design gives you a reliable bond due to its large surface area and contour.
Now doctors around the world are reducing their unnecessary emergency patient visits with Precision Aligner Buttons®.

Reliable Bond Strength
The maximized surface area of the base pad prevents detachment.
Developed for Gumline Placement
Instead of the center of the crown, our anatomically-contoured base pad matches the shape of the tooth at the gingival third.
Engineered Button Head
Our enhanced button head makes it easy to attach elastics of different sizes, improving patient compliance and comfort.
The dimple on the button face is intended for precise positioning using an explorer or scaler.

What Experts Are Saying
Trusted by Top Orthodontists
Precision Aligner Buttons® stay on better than anything we've used in the past. They are the obvious choice for clear aligner treatment.Dr. Ben Fishbein
Orthodontist, Pensacola, FL
“We've always had buccal and lingual buttons, but neither were designed with clear aligners in mind. Now with Precision Aligner Buttons®, orthodontists finally have a solution that was specifically engineered to fit the gingival contour of a first molar. Precision Aligner Buttons® go on easy, fit the aligner cutout windows perfectly, and they debond far less frequently because of this. In short, Precision Aligner Buttons® are the obvious choice for doctors using elastics with aligners.”
Dr. Kyle Fagala
“Precision Aligner Buttons® are the only buttons we use when incorporating elastics with clear aligners. They give me the control and efficacy that I enjoy with elastic button cutouts, but without the emergency appointments.”
Dr. Neal Kravitz
“The Precision Buttons® have allowed me to use what I want—orthodontic buttons—without the headaches of frequent breakage and it has really changed the way I practice. The low profile and smooth corners provide spectacular comfort.”
Dr. Bryan Lockhart
The Clear Precision Aligner Buttons® immediately became the only way we bond buttons with clear aligners! Perfectly manufactured, fits great on the tooth, 100% transparent, resistant, resilient and super easy and fast to bond. I can't see myself going back to composite buttons!
Dr. Frederick Berardinelli
“I love Precision Aligner Buttons®. I use buttons on most of my aligner cases, but always had trouble finding buttons with good bond strength, esthetics, and comfort. Precision Aligner Buttons® have solved all of those problems. These are the only buttons I use now. I use them with 3M™ Clarity™ Aligners as well as with my in-house aligners through uLab™. Now I can focus on getting the results I want for my patients without worrying whether the buttons will fall off.”
Dr. Justin Hughes
