SAN JOSE, CA, Jan 07 (Marketwire) -- 
Align Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: ALGN) today announced the commercial
availability of the Invisalign Outcome Simulator, the Company's first
Invisalign chair-side application powered by the iTero and iOC scanners.
Previewed earlier this year, the interactive application provides
dentists and orthodontists an enhanced platform for patient education and
is designed to increase treatment acceptance by helping patients
visualize the benefits possible with Invisalign treatment.

    "The Invisalign Outcome Simulator is an exciting new chair-side tool,
available for current iTero and iOC scanners as well as the newly
announced iTero, that doctors can use to reveal a customized potential
Invisalign outcome thereby engendering more Invisalign treatment choices
for patients," said Greg Morrow, Align Technology vice president and
general manager of Invisalign. 

    As the only Invisalign chair-side intra-oral scanning application on the
market, the Invisalign Outcome Simulator's unique dual view layout shows
a prospective patient an image of his/her own current dentition next to
his/her simulated final position of how their teeth may look after
Invisalign treatment. Using a full arch Invisalign scan, the easy-to-use
Invisalign Outcome Simulator takes a few minutes to run and may be viewed
chair-side, on the scanner, or from a computer using MyAlignTech.com.
Intuitive tools allow doctors to make real-time adjustments to individual
teeth during consultations that increase patient education and the
likelihood of patient acceptance. For more information about the
Invisalign Outcome Simulator, please visit

    About Align Technology, Inc.
 Align Technology designs, manufactures and
markets Invisalign, a proprietary method for treating malocclusion, or
the misalignment of teeth. Invisalign corrects malocclusion using a
series of clear, nearly invisible, 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, Invisalign significantly reduces the
aesthetic and other limitations associated with braces. Invisalign is
appropriate for treating adults and teens. Align Technology was founded
in March 1997 and received FDA clearance to market Invisalign in 1998.
The Invisalign product family includes Invisalign, Invisalign Teen,
Invisalign Assist, Invisalign Express 10, Invisalign Express 5,
Invisalign Lite, and Vivera Retainers. To learn more about Invisalign or
