Align technology has launched Invisalign G3, building on the improved feature set introduced to the Invisalign treatment option line introduced in 2010.
Class II and III treatments reportedly make up approximately 40 per cent of all patients in a dental practice, and often require the use of interarch elastics to provide anchorage control during treatment. Doctors previously had to manually cut the aligners to accommodate the use of elastics. However, the new appliance addresses this barrier with new Precision Cuts, which are doctor-prescribed cuts in the aligners to accommodate the use of orthodontic elastics.
New SmartForce features include an Optimized Rotation Attachment for premolars (previously available only for canines), Power Ridge feature for lower incisors (previously available only for the upper incisors), and a lingual Power Ridge feature for upper incisors.
Evolution of the ClinCheck software reportedly makes it easier and more intuitive for doctors to create and optimise Invisalign treatment plans. Using the new drag-and-drop interfaces, doctors have the flexibility to specify the placement and the type of Precision Cuts and attachments on the clear aligners.
The Invisalign Doctor Site is a secure website where doctors access Invisalign patient records, review and approve ClinCheck treatment plans, view their account status, order treatment supplies, and more.
