Align Technology Inc. designs, manufactures and markets the Invisalign System, a proprietary method for treating malocclusion. The System corrects malocclusion using a series of clear, removable appliances that gently move teeth to a desired final position. Because it does not rely on the use of metal or ceramic brackets and wires, the System significantly reduces the aesthetic and other limitations associated with braces. The Invisalign System also offers orthodontists a new means of carrying out their diagnosis and treatment planning processes.
