Align Technology debuts entry-level clear aligner

Align Technology has introduced a new clear aligner product and signed an exclusive deal with Henry Schein Dental to distribute it.

Realine is a five-stage clear aligner product designed for very minor crowding and spacing issues that general practitioner (GP) dentists see in their practices every day, including dental relapse, the companies noted in a press release.

Realine offers non-Invisalign GP dentists a competitively priced, easy-to-use product for patients with very limited treatment goals, especially adults whose teeth have shifted or "relapsed" after adolescent orthodontic treatment.

Realine will be available in the U.S. by mid-June exclusively through Henry Schein Dental. Terms of the distribution agreement were not disclosed.

The Realine Starter Kit, which includes the first Realine case, and subsequent Realine Single Cases are offered for a lab fee of $575 each, with optional one-time per case refinements for an additional lab fee of $125 each. As part of the Realine product offering, Henry Schein Dental will also offer Vivera Retainers for a lab fee of $275, which includes four sets of new retainers to maintain final tooth position after treatment.
