NEW YORK—SoftSmile, a software platform with a suite of features for orthodontists and their practices, revealed the U.S development of its aligner software technology. The company's interface provides orthodontists the ability to create precise aligner treatment plans in-house that are then developed using advanced 3D printing technologies. 

SoftSmile announced the launch at AAO 2020: A Virtual Experience held by the American Association of Orthodontists.


SoftSmile Reveals New Aligner Software Solution at Virtual AAO Meeting



“We have long been perfecting our technology to provide orthodontists with the tools they need to fully utilize their skills, lower the cost of the treatment for the patients and usher in the next revolution in orthodontics,” said Khamzat Asabaev, co-founder and CEO. “We are confident that the proprietary technology and algorithms integrated in our software will help to transform orthodontists’ practices and such problems as uncertainty in the result, high cost and lack of accessible treatment will vanish. We believe that SoftSmile is the solution orthodontists and patients have been waiting for.”

The SoftSmile aligner software helps to create a 3D model of the orthodontic treatment plan, including the visualization of teeth roots and movement of the lower jaw during the treatment. It models optimized teeth movement and suggests, along with the knowledge and skill from the orthodontist, the exact number of aligners required for achieving the optimized result. The software is enhanced by AI, which generates key aspects of a treatment plan. Machine learning algorithms automate the time-consuming processes and facilitate the final setup of aligned teeth based on orthodontic measurements.

Following the creation of the treatment plan, SoftSmile’s software automates 3D printing. The company is working with the 3D printing company Carbon to integrate software and manufacturing so that distributed dental printing will become accessible to a wider group of orthodontists.

To date, the SoftSmile team has been granted 12 U.S. patents (over 10 additional U.S. patents are pending). Within the upcoming months SoftSmile will be submitting to the U.S. Federal Drug Administration a Section 510(k) premarket notification of intent to market its software. Ahead of the notification, orthodontists can request to use the SoftSmile software in their practice on a trial basis.
