According to Global Newswire, Align Technology is previewing the Invisalign Outcome Simulator, the Company's first chair-side application powered by the iTero intra-oral scanner. This interactive application is designed to increase patient acceptance of Invisalign treatment by showing prospective patients -- in a matter of minutes -- an image of how their teeth will look after Invisalign treatment.
The Invisalign Outcome Simulator is an easy-to-use software application that will help Dr. Luis educate his patients about the benefits of Invisalign treatment. The application uses iTero digital scans of the patient's own dentition to create a detailed, highly accurate image of the teeth. Then, within minutes, the application creates a simulation of how the patient's teeth will look after Invisalign treatment. Dr. Luis can then use the Invisalign Outcome Simulator's dual view layout to show the patient his/her current dentition next to their simulated final position. Intuitive tools in the Invisalign Outcome Simulator allow Dr. Luis to modify the final position in real time, making it easy for the him to show the patient the benefits of Invisalign treatment.
The Invisalign Outcome Simulator is currently being tested in-market, with general availability expected this summer.
