Align Technology is the brilliance behind the Invisalign product that is vastly and rapidly changing the way we think of “braces” today. In 1997, Align Technology created the innovative product and since then teams of engineers and scientists have been continuously devoted to enhancing your path to a beautiful smile you have wished for.
Originally, Invisalign was meant to treat mild cases of crookedness or teeth spacing issues, but now Invisalign is capable of correcting much more difficult cases with the advancement of technology. The way the Invisalign treatment works is by wearing a series of aligners that fit tightly over the teeth for an estimated two weeks at a time. At every two-week mark, a new aligner will be placed eventually resulting in the desired smile that was intended.
How are aligners created?
Aligners are not made from any sort of guesses. In fact, unique software called ClinCheck is what helps to make Invisalign aligners achievable and accurate. This ClinCheck software helps Invisalign providers map out the path to the desired smile from start to finish.
More about ClinCheck software:
- The 3D visual allows the Invisalign provider to customize treatment as needed
- Drag and drop interfaces are made available to make attachments and precision cuts communication much easier with Align
- Algorithms are used to help calculate the adequate amount of force needed for every tooth movement
- The software, with aid of the Invisalign provider, helps to ensure every tooth moves in the correct order and at the right time
