TELL ALIGN TECHNOLOGY, INC. TO RE-INSTATE INTEROPERABILITY BETWEEN INVISALIGN AND 3SHAPE’S TRIOS SCANNERS
Sometimes actions have unintended consequences. When Align terminated interoperability between Invisalign and 3Shape TRIOS scanners, they thought they would be able to entice TRIOS users to their iTero scanner. Instead, this action is hurting dental professionals and their patients.
Align says it terminated interoperability because of patent litigation. In fact, it’s an attempt to push 3Shape out of the market by imposing consequences on our customers. Without interoperability, dental professionals are experiencing challenges and frustrations -- forced to make unforeseen business and financial decisions and left with fewer choices.
It's a dynamic time for the industry, and 3Shape has always tried to be the company that empowers and propels you to advance your business – not stifle it. That’s why our TRIOS scanner is an open system, and why we continue to bring you more and more treatment options to offer patients.
ALIGN CAN ASSERT ITS PATENTS WITHOUT HARMING DENTISTS, AND 3SHAPE CAN DEFEND ITSELF WITHOUT HOLDING ANYONE HOSTAGE.
If you’ve been impacted by Align’s action, tell Align to keep its patent lawsuit out of your office and to reinstate interoperability between Invisalign and 3Shape’s TRIOS scanners.
