Align Technology Inc, San
Jose, Calif, has launched Invisalign G3. The new aligner and software
enhancements are designed to make the system more effective in treating
Class II and Class III orthodontic patients.
Invisalign G3 features Precision Cuts, which are doctor-prescribed
pre-cuts in the aligners that accommodate the use of elastics. Using a
new drag-and-drop interface in ClinCheck 3.0 software, orthodontists can
now specify the placement and the type of Precision Cuts on the
New SmartForce™ features in Invisalign G3 include an Optimized Rotation
Attachment for bicuspids (previously available only for cuspids), a new
Power Ridge™ feature for lower anteriors (previously available only for
the upper arch), and a Lingual Power Ridge feature for upper anteriors.
A new variation of the Optimized Rotation Attachment is also being
introduced to address clinical situations where placement of the
attachment may have previously been difficult, according to the company.
The Invisalign Doctor Site (formerly Virtual Invisalign Practice or
"VIP"), a secure Web site where doctors access Invisalign patient
records, review and approve ClinCheck treatment options, view patient
account statues, and order treatment supplies, has also been redesigned.
The site now consolidates all of a patient’s Invisalign records and
treatment tasks together in one location. The Invisalign Doctor Site
also introduces a new online prescription form that is integrated with
the orthodontist’s clinical preferences.
Invisalign G3 also includes new clinical preferences and the addition of
Compliance Indicators to Invisalign Assist.
Invisalign G3 features will be available to Invisalign-trained doctors
in North America in October 2010 and internationally in 2011.
