Align Technology unveils new Invisalign system innovation

Align Technology, a dental and medical device company, launched cone beam computed tomography as a new feature for its ClinCheck digital treatment planning software.

Cone beam computed tomography is a tool that allows doctors to visualize patients' roots as part of the digital treatment planning process. It does this by combining roots, bone and crowns into a single 3D model, according to a March 18 news release.

The tool could help doctors expand diagnosis and treat more cases using Invisalign clear aligners because it increases visibility and control of a patient's underlying anatomical structures during the digital treatment planning process, the news release reported.

Cone beam computed tomography is currently in technical design assessment. It will be scaled in phases across Align's customer population in the second half of 2022.
