Align Technology showcases digital dentistry solutions

Align Technology, a global medical device company, will highlight its digital dentistry solutions that have helped transform the lives of millions of patients at the fourth International Dental Conference & Exhibition (DLS4), being held in Bahrain.

Align Technology is a global medical device company engaged in the design, manufacture and marketing of the Invisalign system - the most advanced clear aligner system in the world, and iTero intraoral scanners and services for orthodontic and restorative dentistry.

The event which opened today (November 14) will run until November 16, at Art Rotana Hotel, Amwaj Islands.

One of the highlights of the event will be an Invisalign seminar, hosted by Dr Mario Greco, the visiting professor at the University of Ferrara, who will discuss in detail the advantages of clear aligners versus conventional appliances.

The seminar is open to all delegates of DLS4, and will be held on November 15. Dr Greco will also lead a plenary lecture on November 15 from 10.30 to 11.30 am on ‘the Effective Affinities for Aligner Digital Orthodontics.”

In addition to the lecture and the workshop, Align Technology’s exhibition stand will showcase its digital dentistry solutions, including the Invisalign clear aligner system that helps straighten teeth of teenagers and adults without the need for a brace.

Invisalign`s Mandibular Advancement feature combines the benefits of the most advanced clear aligner system in the world with features for moving lower jaw forward while simultaneously aligning the teeth.

Invisalign treatment with mandibular advancement offers convenient and barely visible treatment in comparison to functional appliances. The treatment is done without the need for elastics typically used to treat teen Class II patients.

Mawlid Chaoui, Align Technology general manager for Middle East and Africa, said: “DLS4 Bahrain is a truly global event that brings together dental experts and medical professionals to discuss evolving trends as well as the challenges faced.”

“We are extending our support to the event as a Diamond Sponsor in addition to hosting Dr Mario Greco at the event to present the advances we have made in digital dentistry. Today, our Invisalign clear aligner systems and iTero Element scanner are a popular choice among practitioners and we aim to leverage our participation to strengthen doctor awareness about our innovative products and solutions,” Chaoui added.

Invisalign clear aligners help move teeth without the use of braces, mini-screws or mini-implants.

Invisalign aligners are removable, easy to clean and made of a proprietary material called SmartTrack, developed specially for Align, which differentiates the Invisalign system from traditional braces as well as alternative clear aligner offerings, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
