Align Technology announced it has partnered with dental management platform Asana and has introduced an outcome simulator for Invisalign clear aligners.
Under the partnership, Invisalign clinicians in the U.S. will have access to Asana Smiles for Align, a customizable workflow platform with HIPAA-compliant features. Using the platform, clinicians can book consultations, submit prescriptions, monitor treatment plans, and prepare aligner delivery appointments.
Additionally, Align introduced the patient communication tool Invisalign Outcome Simulator Pro. It enables doctors to show patients their potential new smile after Invisalign treatment using in-face visualization and/or 3D dentition view. The simulator is available on iTero Element Plus Series scanners and imaging systems and includes the ClinCheck In-Face visualization tool that combines a photo of a patient's face with their 3D treatment simulation.
Currently, the simulator is in limited market release. It will be available on all iTero Element Plus Series scanners and imaging systems starting in the second half of 2022.
