The global medical device company which broke new ground with the Invisalign® system – the most advanced clear aligner system in the world – is hailing unprecedented interest in its latest aesthetic teeth straightening product designed specifically for General Dentists. Since the launch of The Invisalign Go system by Align Technology, there have been a significant number of requests to train from dentists who are new to The Invisalign® system. This is because the simplified approach to teeth straightening takes General Dentists through identifying, planning and monitoring aesthetic cases, enabling them to use The Invisalign® system to treat patients confidently right from the get go.
The Invisalign Go system is suitable for simple aesthetic treatments to the anterior teeth (first premolar to first premolar).
To ensure the right cases are treated by the right dentists, case assessment software assists in the patient selection to make it safe and straightforward. After uploading intra-oral pictures of their patient to Align Technology’s proprietary system, dentists receive an evaluation of the case’s suitability for The Invisalign Go system.
Excitingly, Align Technology has engaged with UK based Aligner Consulting, which gives Invisalign Go providers personal feedback and support about why the software gave the result it did. This becomes an invaluable educational tool to help them assess cases themselves before submitting them and to help them further understand the appropriate cases they are able to treat within their scope of practice.
Every General Dentist who signs up to the Invisalign Go system will have access to a thorough and stimulating training programme. This programme is made up of online components and a training day with live hands-on sessions to provide a thorough understanding of how the Invisalign Go system works. Align Technology has ensured high demand can be catered for by holding multiple training courses across the country; and the cost for the whole course is only £895.
Align Technology has also created a comprehensive CPD programme.
This ensures that each new provider has sustained support throughout their early experience with the Invisalign Go system. They are actively encouraged to join Aligner Consulting’s community and tap into free expert training, coaching, mentoring and on-going support for those new to The Invisalign® system.
The cost for an Invisalign Go Single Arch treatment costs £655, whilst a Dual Arch treatment is £875. With a fixed lab fee there are no hidden surprises and any additional aligners required to reach the original treatment goal are included at no extra charge.
