Align Technology passes five million patient milestone for Invisalign

28th November 2017

Align Technology has announced that its Invisalign clear aligner system has now been adopted by more than five million patients worldwide.

This represents a significant milestone for the product range, which has been available for nearly 20 years and continues to gain traction. Whereas the first million Invisalign systems were purchased over a ten-year period, the gap between four and five million sales was bridged in only one year.

To date, there are more than 127,000 Invisalign-trained doctors worldwide, while teenage patients now represent one of the fastest-growing markets for Invisalign treatment.

In the third quarter of 2017, worldwide Invisalign shipments to teenagers increased 46 percent compared to the same period last year, meaning more than one million teenagers have now started orthodontic treatment with Invisalign.

Joe Hogan, Align Technology's president and chief executive officer, said: "The introduction of Invisalign Teen with Mandibular Advancement gives Invisalign providers even more confidence that they can deliver great outcomes and great treatment experience to teens in their practices."
