Align Dental Platform, a proprietary combination of software, systems, and services designed to provide a seamless dental experience and workflow by Align Technology, will receive Invisalign system upgrades and innovations. The new innovations include ClinCheck Live Update for 3D controls, the Invisalign Practice App, Invisalign Personalised Plan (IPP), and Invisalign Smile Architect.

According to Align Technology, ClinCheck Live Update is a new feature in ClinCheck Pro that enables doctors to generate modified Invisalign patient treatment plans in real time. With this feature, doctors can use 3D controls to make changes to a ClinCheck plan and see these changes in a revised treatment plan in about “two minutes”. This eliminates “weeks of back-and-forth interactions” between doctors and Align computer-aided design (CAD) designers, and also communicates the doctor’s clinical intent more accurately.

The Invisalign Practice App is a new mobile companion to the Invisalign Doctor Site (IDS) that streamlines practice workflow by putting many of the Invisalign treatment features that doctors use daily, such as photo capture, Invisalign Virtual Care, Invisalign Virtual Appointment and Invisalign SmileView simulation into one app.

Invisalign Personalised Plan (IPP) is a new technology feature in ClinCheck Pro software designed to streamline the treatment planning process and help doctors achieve their desired treatment plans more consistently and efficiently. It combines automated and near real-time ClinCheck treatment planning software with the creation and management of doctor-specific treatment preferences, such as doctor’s prescription choices, clinical preferences, among others.

And lastly, Invisalign Smile Architect delivers ortho-restorative treatment planning with a facially-driven treatment planning approach. It combines iTero intraoral scans, facial photos, and ClinCheck software to help doctors create treatment plans that integrate orthodontics and restorative treatments for their patients. With the ClinCheck In-Face Visualisation tool, doctors receive a facial rendering that they can use for treatment planning and help patients visualise their smile after both Invisalign treatment and restorative dental treatment.

Each of these innovations is designed to enhance Invisalign treatment planning quality, efficiency, and scale, and contribute to a better doctor-patient engagement and treatment outcomes.

Raj Pudipeddi, Align Technology chief product and marketing officer, senior vice president and managing director, Asia-Pacific commented, “Align is proud to be at the forefront of digital orthodontics and dentistry, building an integrated platform of digital products and services that provides a seamless solution to doctors to efficiently and effectively treat their patients and build their practices. Today’s announcement of new Invisalign system innovations for the Align Digital Platform reflects our commitment to continuous innovation.

“By reimagining the end-to-end Invisalign treatment planning experience, simplifying every step, and enabling doctors to more easily connect with their patients, we are delivering on our vision of a truly seamless Align Digital Platform that helps our doctors transform smiles and change lives.”
