What Is an Invisalign Lens?

The Invisalign virtual care lens is a remote monitoring system for Invisalign patients, allowing for virtual check-ins between office visits. In fact, it’s a small device designed to attach to your smartphone to easily take photos to identify any potential issues early on.
