October 31, 2018 -- Medical device company Align Technology has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its Invisalign treatment with mandibular advancement.

The new clear-aligner system simultaneously aligns teeth and repositions the lower jaw.

The treatment will be available in the U.S. beginning on November 19.
