Align Technology introduces new InvisalignG4

New Products

Align Technology has introduced InvisalignG4, the next generation of SmartForce clinical innovations, designed to address some of the most significant treatment challenges doctors encounter. The new and improved SmartForce features in InvisalignG4 are engineered to help doctors achieve even better clinical results for open bite treatments, more predictable movement of upper laterals and improved root control for canines and central incisors.

"In the year since we launched InvisalignG3, research with providers has shown that the SmartForce features increase a doctor's likelihood of prescribing Invisalign and help the doctor to deliver the results they expect in more clinical applications," said Sheila Tan, Align Technology's vice president, marketing and chief marketing officer.

"InvisalignG4 expands on the InvisalignG3 foundation which first introduced new aligner and software features that make it easier to use Invisalign when treating Class I and Class II patients."

SmartForce features, such as Optimised Attachments and the Power Ridge features, are engineered to deliver the forces needed to achieve predictable tooth movements. Based on biomechanical principles, SmartForce features are customised for each tooth using advanced virtual modeling and are positioned precisely to deliver the proper forces. New InvisalignG4 clinical innovations are engineered to help doctors achieve:

  • Better clinical outcomes for open bites: new multi-tooth approach for open bite treatment and improved Optimised Extrusion Attachments are designed to improve clinical outcomes when treating anterior open bites;
  • Improved predictability for upper laterals: new Optimised Multi-Plane Movement features are designed to improve control of upper laterals undergoing extrusion along with rotation and/or crown tip; and
  • Greater root control for canines and central incisors: new Optimised Root Control Attachments provide greater mesio-distal root control for canines and central incisors.

In addition to these new features, Optimised Extrusion Attachments for anterior teeth have been improved to better deliver the force needed for great finishes and Optimised Attachments that were introduced with InvisalignG3 can now be used in conjunction with Precision Cuts, where applicable, when treating Class II and Class III patients with Invisalign.

The expanded InvisalignG4 product features will be available on Invisalign Full, Invisalign Teen, Invisalign Assist, Invisalign Express 10 (previously Invisalign Express) and Invisalign Lite (for International markets) at no additional cost to Invisalign-trained doctors worldwide.
