ALGN: Recent Updates
Dentists can now visualize a patient’s roots during the digital treatment planning process, thanks to a new Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) integration feature recently introduced by Align Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: ALGN).
ClinCheck digital treatment planning software is a user-friendly tool that combines roots, bone, and crowns into a single three-dimensional model that allows doctors to visualize a patient’s roots during the digital treatment planning process. When combined with Invisalign clear aligners, the CBCT integration feature will enable doctors to expand diagnosis and treat a broader range of cases confidently. This is accomplished by increasing visibility and controlling a patient’s underlying anatomical structures during the digital treatment planning procedure.
It is now in the evaluation process for technical design (TDA). It will be implemented in stages throughout our client base, beginning with the second half of 2022.
