Product is a new cost-effective treatment for minor crowding and spacing.

SAN JOSE, California--Align Technology has announced Invisalign Express 5, a cost-effective treatment option for very minor crowding, spacing, or orthodontic relapse treatments that require five or fewer stages of Invisalign aligners.

Invisalign Express 5 will help doctors treat more patients who could benefit from minor tooth movements, but are reluctant to invest in treatment due to cost.

Invisalign Express 5 offers the same high-quality features that doctors expect from other Invisalign treatment options, including:

• ClinCheck treatment plan that shows a 3-D 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;
• 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.

“Many patients want to correct a little crowding or other minor malocclusions, but don’t follow-through because of the perceived high cost of orthodontic treatment,” said Timothy A. Mack, Align senior vice president, business development. “Invisalign Express 5 gives doctors a new option for these patients--one with all the benefits of Invisalign and straighter teeth at a price consistent with minor fixes.”

Invisalign Express 5 is a shorter-duration option to Invisalign Express 10, Align’s treatment option for minor crowding, spacing, or pre-restorative treatments that can be addressed in 10 or fewer stages of aligners.

Invisalign Express 5 will be available beginning Jan. 30, 2012, 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.
