Align Technology introduced the Invisalign Outcome Simulator Pro, the next generation of its advanced patient communication tool.
The updated technology enables doctors to show patients their potential new smile after Invisalign treatment, using in-face visualization and/or 3D dentition view. It is available on iTero Element Plus Series scanners and imaging systems.
Invisalign Outcome Simulator Pro expands Align’s existing Invisalign Outcome Simulator technology and adds the benefits of the Company’s ClinCheck “In-Face” Visualization tool that combines a photo of a patient’s face with their 3D treatment simulation, creating a personalized view of how their new smile could look.
It supports a more streamlined workflow and overall consultation, making the most of patient chair time.
Patient photos are easily captured on a mobile device using the Invisalign Practice App and the scan is taken on the iTero Element Plus series scanner.
With the digital patient images, the Invisalign Outcome Simulator Pro starts automatically in the background, enabling doctors to continue the consultation using other iTero tools in their chairside discussions with their patients while the Invisalign treatment simulation is generated.
“The new Invisalign Outcome Simulator Pro tool is a demonstration of our continued commitment to bringing greater efficiency and more value to doctors through innovation and simplified workflows via the iTero Element portfolio,” said Yuval Shaked, executive vice president, iTero scanners and services business. “It is an exciting new development that furthers Align’s vision of an integrated platform of digital products and services, providing a seamless solution for doctors to efficiently and effectively treat their patients with Invisalign clear aligners and to build their practices through a holistic, end-to-end digital treatment experience.”
Invisalign Outcome Simulator Pro is currently in limited market release and will be available on all iTero Element Plus Series scanners and imaging systems starting in the second half of 2022.
“Invisalign Outcome Simulator Pro is another example of our drive to empower doctors with the latest advances in dental science and technology via the Align Digital platform to help doctors transform smiles and change lives with Invisalign treatment,” said Raj Pudipeddi, chief product and marketing officer, executive vice president and managing director, Asia Pacific.
