The Invisalign system is the most advanced clear aligner system in the world. Backed by two decades of innovation, the Invisalign system has helped bring smiles to approximately 10.9 million people including over 2.8 million teens.

The Invisalign system is used for straightening teeth with a series of custom-made aligners for each patient. It is a combination of proprietary virtual modeling software, rapid manufacturing processes and mass customization, and custom-made aligners with patented aligner material.

Used to treat a wide range of clinical situations, Invisalign treatment options address simple to complex cases and post-treatment retention. The Invisalign system is powered by three key elements:

  • SmartTrack material. Align Technology’s own patented aligner material that provides gentle, more constant forces to improve control of tooth movements. After testing 260 different materials, our material on average enables faster treatment.
  • SmartStaging technology. Programming each tooth movement in a certain sequence, at the right time to achieve optimal outcomes and greater predictability.
  • SmartForce features. Attachments and features designed into the aligners deliver the precise forces when needed to achieve more predictable tooth movements. The Invisalign system is the only system in the world with features such as Bite Ramps, Precision Cuts, Power Ridge to help address a wide range of clinical situations.
