Basel, 8 March 2023 - ClearCorrect, a pioneering provider of orthodontic solutions, has pressed ahead with its global growth strategy, driven by several new market entries and manufacturing line activations achieved during 2022.
The company, which was acquired by The Straumann Group in 2017, has launched new and updated products and features to its premier aligner and associated digital portals, apps and exceptional software, service, and educational programs into eight additional countries.
Engineered for precision, comfort, and esthetics, ClearCorrect's aligners represent the ultimate orthodontic tool for practicing orthodontists. Created and evolved from decades of material science, research, and innovation, these aligners retain 10x more of their initial force than competitors and 4x proven tear resistance, by combining proprietary ClearQuartz™ tri-layer material, a high and flat trimline, and scientifically-proven clinical features. Meanwhile, the physical product range is backed by a powerful digital ecosystem designed to offer control and flexibility over treatments while maximizing productivity.
In another promising development, ClearCorrect has received approval to commercialize its aligner system in China – activity which will be supported by in-country manufacturing and treatment planning sites.
Additional manufacturing lines have been brought on stream in the USA and Germany, and with the Brazil manufacturing already in place, the company is primed for global production across four different continents. Meanwhile the company also operates three treatment planning centers.
“The past year has been a continuation of the momentum we have built up since ClearCorrect joined the Straumann Group in 2017,” commented Camila Finzi, EVP and Head of the Orthodontic Business Unit.
“With eight new markets and two new manufacturing lines being activated, we are now very well positioned to bring ClearCorrect to clinicians and their practices all around the world. This latest expansion drive is a signal of confidence in our product and our ability to scale.”
“Across almost two decades, we have been able to transform over a million smiles for people in more than 50 countries.”
The company’s solutions are now available in 56 counties, with at least three new markets coming on stream through the rest of 2023.
ClearCorrect has also been busy innovating and launching new products and features.
Looking ahead to the upcoming International Dental Show (IDS) in Cologne, Germany, next March 14-18, the company will announce a total of seven new products and software features designed to assist doctors in their treatment of patients, creating a seamless digital end-to-end experience. More details are expected in the coming weeks.
