Align expands platform with ClinCheck Pro 6

May 21, 2020

ClinCheck Pro 6.0, moves Invisalign digital treatment planning to the cloud.

Align Technology, Inc. announced the latest version of its ClinCheck treatment planning software at the Invisalign Scientific Symposium, a fully digital event for Invisalign-trained orthodontists May 15-16. ClinCheck software provides doctors with a 3D model of planned tooth movements throughout Invisalign treatment.

The newest version, ClinCheck Pro 6.0, moves Invisalign digital treatment planning to the cloud, making its treatment planning tools and features available to doctors anytime, anywhere, on any device. The release features the new ClinCheck “In-Face” Visualization tool, an enhanced doctor-facing digital clinical tool that combines a photo of the patient’s face with their 3D Invisalign treatment plan, creating a personalized view of how their new smile could look.

The “In-Face” Visualization is designed to help doctors with their digital treatment planning and to increase patient understanding of the benefits provided by Invisalign treatment through enhanced visualizations of their personalized treatment outcome. The “In-Face” workflow combines three components of Align’s digital treatment platform: Invisalign Photo Uploader for patient photos; the iTero intraoral scanner to capture data needed for the 3D model of the patient’s dentition; and ClinCheck Pro 6.0.

“Cloud-based ClinCheck Pro 6.0 and ClinCheck ‘In-Face’ Visualization are the latest components of the end-to-end digital treatment platform we provide to doctors,” said Raj Pudipeddi, Align’s chief innovation, product, and marketing officer and SVP. “They represent important advancements in our industry-leading digital platform-the convenience and accessibility of cloud-based computing and the power of visualization. Being able to merge a 2D facial photo and 3D treatment plan to show patients a personalized view of their planned treatment outcome is an incredible tool for doctors in terms of treatment acceptance. ClinCheck Pro 6.0 and ClinCheck ‘In-Face’ Visualization are the first in what we intend to be a series of innovations to reimagine our digital treatment planning experience for doctors. The experience and know-how from treating more than 8 million Invisalign patients enables us to continually improve our treatment planning process and helps maintain our position as a market leader.”

In addition to ClinCheck  “In-Face” Visualization, ClinCheck Pro 6.0 includes improvements to allow doctor modifications through 3D controls and new education features, such as tool tips and product tours. The cloud-based solution allows doctors to treatment plan with flexibility across devices and ensures that they have the latest version of the software without the need for additional downloads.

Doctors will access ClinCheck Pro 6.0 by logging on to their Invisalign Doctor Site to access patient files-there is no need to download or install an application. ClinCheck Pro 6.0 will be available beginning in the third quarter of 2020. For more information, visit aligntech.com.
