Align Technology has introduced a new clear aligner product and signed an exclusive deal with Henry Schein Dental to distribute it.

Realine is a five-stage clear aligner product designed for very minor crowding and spacing issues that general practitioner (GP) dentists see in their practices every day, including dental relapse, the companies noted in a press release.

Realine offers non-Invisalign GP dentists a competitively priced, easy-to-use product for patients with very limited treatment goals, especially adults whose teeth have shifted or "relapsed" after adolescent orthodontic treatment.

Realine will be available in the U.S. by mid-June exclusively through Henry Schein Dental. Terms of the distribution agreement were not disclosed.

The Realine Starter Kit, which includes the first Realine case, and subsequent Realine Single Cases are offered for a lab fee of $575 each, with optional one-time per case refinements for an additional lab fee of $125 each. As part of the Realine product offering, Henry Schein Dental will also offer Vivera Retainers for a lab fee of $275, which includes four sets of new retainers to maintain final tooth position after treatment.

Align Technology has awarded a total of $220,000 in new funding to five universities in North America and seven international universities for projects seeking to better understand orthodontic treatment with clear aligners and use of orthodontic scanners.

The new clear aligner therapy research award recipients in North America for 2013:

Universite de Montreal in Montreal, Quebec, $25,000

University of Alabama in Birmingham, AL, $25,000

The new clear aligner therapy international research award recipients for 2013:

Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Thessaloniki, Greece, $25,000

Universita degli Studi di Milano in Milan, Italy, $25,000

Sichuan University in Sichuan, China, $25,000

University of Hong Kong in Hong Kong, China, $25,000

University of Insubria in Varese, Italy, $25,000

The eight new research study proposals approved for funding in 2013 consist of a comparison of predicted tooth movement of ClinCheckin the middle and at the end of treatment to the actual outcome; a comparison on clinical outcomes of periodontal regeneration of infrabony defect in combining orthodontic treatment after surgery; a study of pain perception; an evaluation on oral health-related quality of life among patients in orthodontic treatments; an analysis of bacteria concentration using different aligner cleaning methods; an evaluation on the duration of treatment, quality of outcomes, and patient satisfaction of combined orthodontic-surgical treatment with Invisalign; a retrospective study analyzing Invisalign treatment outcomes using indices; and a study on the association of aligner therapy with the dramatic reduction in the prevalence of external apical root resorption secondary to orthodontic treatment.

This year, Align also introduced a new scanner research award component to recognize the increasing use of intraoral scanning technology. The following are the scanner award recipients for 2013:

University of Washington in Seattle, $5,000

University of Rome Tor Vegata Fatebenefratelli Hospital Department of Orthodontics in Rome, $5,000

Boston University Goldman School of Dental Medicine in Boston, $5,000

University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, $5,000

The four scanner award proposal topics include methods and training techniques for intraoral scanning efficiency; iTero's capability of reproducing the 3D dental anatomy accurately compared with desktop laser scanners; the reliability and accuracy of the intraoral scanner; and the use of 3D extraoral and intraoral imaging as a substitute for cephalometric radiography in orthodontic treatment planning.
