Align Technology offers also the iTero 3D digital scanning system and services for orthodontic and restorative dentistry.
Align Technology was founded in March 1997, received FDA clearance to market Invisalign in 1998 and has been on the market in Europe since 2001. Invisalign and all Invisalign products are designed, manufactured and marketed by Align Technology, Inc. (ALGN).
Using the Invisalign system, dental professionals now have a modern choice for straightening teeth for both adults and teens patients. No more wires and brackets required – Invisalign is the clear alternative to metal braces that uses a series of virtually invisible and removable aligners that gradually move teeth over time. The benefits include: no food restrictions and no interference with sports or other activities because aligners can be removed and reinserted by patients, and teeth get straightened without most people knowing they are in treatment.
