Align Technology Inc, San Jose, Calif, has introduced Invisalign Express 5, a treatment option for very minor crowding, spacing, or orthodontic relapse treatments requiring five or fewer stages of Invisalign aligners. Invisalign Express 5 is designed to help orthodontists treat more patients who could benefit from minor tooth movements, but are reluctant to invest in treatment due to cost.

According to the company, Invisalign Express 5 offers the same features that orthodontists expect from other Invisalign treatment options, including the ClinCheck treatment plan that shows a 3D virtual representation of the desired final result and the number of aligner stages required; SmartForce® attachments and aligner features engineered to deliver force systems for predictable tooth movements; and an optional one-time refinement of up to five aligners to help achieve the final tooth position as defined in the original ClinCheck treatment plan.
Invisalign Express 5 is a shorter-duration alternative to Invisalign Express 10, Align’s treatment option for minor crowding, spacing, or prerestorative treatments that can be addressed in 10 or fewer stages of aligners. Invisalign Express 5 will be available beginning January 30 to Invisalign doctors in North America at a lab fee of $549, with the optional one-time refinement for an additional lab fee of $125.
