Start selling clear aligners

Clear aligners represent today one of the fastest growing areas within dentistry. New digital technologies and the recent expiration of clear-aligner patents have opened new opportunities for orthodontic labs to enter this highly profitable industry. 3Shape makes it easy for labs by providing digital workflows for either inhouse design or through direct access to expert orthodontic design services.

With 3Shape Ortho Analyzer, you either do the clear aligner setup and production or you send to 3Shape design service partners and/or production centers. Either way, your orthodontic lab is still in charge of the workflow.
