Aligners – The Big Market

Align Technology is a medical device provider focused on malocclusion or teeth misalignment condition. Currently, around 60%–75% of the total world population is affected by this condition.

While ten million people in developed markets seek treatment from orthodontists every year, half of them suffer from mild to moderate malocclusion, which is the target market for Align Technology’s Invisalign system. Around 100 million people in the world prefer to straighten their teeth at home using clear aligner technology. This doctor-directed home market is also a major growth opportunity for Align Technology.

In 2016, the Clear Aligner segment reported revenues of close to $958.3 million, which made up 89% of the company’s total revenues. The Clear Aligner segment’s revenues are further categorized into a comprehensive product and non-comprehensive product revenues.

Comprehensive products involve Invisalign Full, Invisalign Teen, and Invisalign Assist product lines. While Invisalign Full consists of the set of aligners required by dentists, Invisalign Teen includes additional features suitable for teenage patients.

Notably, the Core S&P Mid-Cap ETF (IJH) has about 0.67% of its total portfolio holdings in Align Technology.

Pregnancy may be blocked by a Periodontal Pathogen Porphyromonas Gingivalis

Researchers at the University of Helsinki found  delay conception in young women could be associated with P Gingivalis.

The study, published June 12 in the Journal of Oral Microbiology, included 256 healthy, non-pregnant women ranging in age from 19 to 42 from Southern Finland who had discontinued contraception in order to become pregnant.

Participants were followed for a period of 12 months to determine whether they got pregnant during that time period.

The researchers found significantly higher levels of porphyromonas gingivalis, a bacterium associated with periodontal diseases, in the saliva of women who did not become pregnant during the study period compared to those who did become pregnant.

The women with P. gingivalis in their saliva had three times more difficulty getting pregnant compared to women without the bacterium.
