The Invisalign® system is used for straightening teeth with a series of custom-made aligners for each patient. It is a combination of proprietary virtual modeling software, rapid manufacturing processes and mass customization, and custom-made aligners with patented aligner material.
Used to treat a wide range of clinical situations, Invisalign treatment options address simple to complex cases and post-treatment retention. The Invisalign® system is powered by three key elements:
Patented aligner material is designed for optimal control of tooth movements and on average enables faster treatment than braces.
Attachments and features designed into the aligners to deliver the precise forces when needed to achieve more predictable tooth movements. The Invisalign® system is the only system in world that uses features such Bite Ramps, Precision Cuts, Power Ridge that help address a wide range of clinical situations.
Digital programming each tooth movement in a certain sequence, ensures teeth move at the right time to achieve optimal outcomes and greater predictability.
The Invisalign® system is prescribed to patients through Invisalign-trained orthodontists or general practitioner dentists (GP dentists). Align provides clinical education programs and the tools needed for orthodontists or GP dentists to offer Invisalign treatment options in their practices. Patient pricing for Invisalign products is determined by the doctor, depending on the treatment plan.
