Align Technology Announces New Teen Solution With Introduction of Invisalign Teen With Mandibular Advancement

First clear aligner to simultaneously align teeth and reposition the jaw in growing patients

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - March 06, 2017) - Align Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:  ALGN ) today announced Invisalign Teen with mandibular advancement, the first clear aligner solution for Class II correction in growing tween and teen patients. This new offering combines the benefits of the most advanced clear aligner system in the world with features for moving the lower jaw forward while simultaneously aligning the teeth. Invisalign Teen with mandibular advancement offers a simpler, more efficient and patient-friendly treatment option than functional appliances and without the need for elastics typically used to treat teen Class II patients.

"20 years ago, Align Technology transformed the orthodontic industry by replacing an analog approach to straightening teeth with a modern digital solution called the Invisalign system," said Align Technology President and CEO, Joe Hogan. "Since then we have continuously innovated with new products and technologies that are revolutionizing orthodontic treatment for doctors and their patients. Today, we are pleased to introduce the first clear aligner solution that improves the treatment experience for tweens and teens needing Class II correction by straightening their teeth and improving jaw position at the same time."
