Align Technology, Inc. named in class action over sale of Invisalign® removable dental appliances

Align Technology, Inc

This is a class action lawsuit against Align Technology, Inc. on behalf of purchasers of Invisalign® removable dental appliances made of a plastic resin (Aligners) advertised and promoted to treat patients with orthodontic or restorative dentistry issues marketed by Defendant as an alternative to traditional metal braces, which claims its -treatable cases- include “serious malocclusionl.”

As alleged, the Invisalign® system does not treat Plaintiff and class members’ malocclusions, which require other dental procedures to correct their dental condition such as crowns. Defendant offers its Invisalign®  system of aligners to treat the misalignment of teeth and malocclusions through dentists and orthodontists that work in conjunction with defendant’s trained specialists leading consumers to believe that the Aligners would cure their dentistry issues such as malocclusions. In actuality, the Aligners cannot treat malocclusions.

Defendant has utilized and utilizes misleading marketing practices as a means of promoting the Aligners without the capacity to perform as claimed. Moreover, Defendant has also falsely advertised, misled and deceived consumers like Plaintiff into believing the Invisalign® system can treat their malocclusions to their detriment. These misrepresentations play a substantial part in influencing Plaintiff’s and other consumers’ decisions to purchase the falsely advertised and marketed aligners, decisions made upon reliance on defendant’s misrepresentation prominently displayed in its advertising, including brochures placed in dentists and orthodontists offices, advertisements, and on its website, www.invisalign.com.

Defendant has received warning letters from the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) in connection with the advertising and marketing of its Aligners based on its failure to inform the public of some severe side effects caused from wearing the Aligners.

I would like to get involved in this. My Invisalign nightmare goes on & on & on. In 5 months of constant pain & earaches, 2 teeth failed, resulting in 2 root canals, one positive, the other not, one dental implant & the need for 2 crowns. Also, I could not put these thing in & out of my mouth without breaking my finger nails down to the quick. All 10 fingers bled regularly, without healing for 3 months. Then, one got infected & required surgery. The surgeon thought I might lose part of my left index finger, but I was lucky & did not. It still remained painful when using the hand & finger for months while that healed. After that, I needed to find something else to wedge in my mouth to get these braces off, & was advised to use spoons by my dentist. I tried to call Invisalign to see what they actually recommend, but they will not help you, & direct you back to your dentist. I could never take these things out of my mouth with my nails because they were way too tight & sharp. When I developed severe earaches in both ears, signaling to me I would probably lose another tooth on each side, I pulled them out for good. Since they have been out, I feel so much better. I realized that for the past 5 months I have been so exhausted & depressed & never felt well. I thought it was from all the dental pain & issues & constant antibiotics. But now I am wondering if the plastic itself was toxic for me. I am extremely sensitive to many chemicals & medicines. No one warned me about ANY OF THIS.

Hi,
I was having this problem and I have to use metallic braces at that time as the invisalign treatment was not in demand at that time and no one was also aware of it. This is really a great technology which will provide comfort to the users.

During the my year and a half treatment, my dentist never checked on my progress. These were 35 trays. Nobody told me that it could cause crowns displacement , cavities and other issues. When I got my retainers they were solo tight that I had headache for 3 days and now I have 4 gaps cause by the retainers! The doctor suggested 30 more weeks of new treatment and refuses to seek other options thru invisalign. Dentist staff refuses to give me contact info for invisalign rep or reimburse me for the retainers that I can't use. I have been in pain for the last 3 days with some gum inflammation every time i wear the retainers.

I have an interest in joining this lawsuit. The presenting problem was erosion of the lower incisors; The dentist failed to inform me that Invisalign could result in an open posterior bite which worsened the presenting problem!!! Incisal attrition!!! I went to other örthodontists, who said, Ï dont see anything wrong!"(that is the esssence.) and refused to correct it.Violations: Withholding material facts from patients; conflict of interest (more money for dentist than with wire and brackets); lying about the existing problem. Part of the nightmare is the number of dentists violating ADA ethics. A third orthodontist, when he heard it was his friend who bunged up my teeth, got belligerant and said, ¨What do you want ME to do about it?" (actually raising his voice at me but lying and saying I was ¨yelling.¨ Horrible, horrible horrible unethical people. I had to leave this podunk town for an honest and thorough evaluation from a dentist in a large city at least 30 minute drive. PROBLEM: Will I never find a dentist willing to correct the incompetent work of a fellow dentist?????

I have completed my invisalign and my teeth did not reach what I call the straightness. I was not followed properly with a dentist checking my teeth with each set that was handed over. I have now been wearing my last set for over two months. I contacted the office of the dentist and expressed my concerns about my treatment that I paid 4500.00 for they ordered a net set for 32 weeks. The dentist advised me that she would not start the new set . So they took the buttons off and I'm now with unfinished teeth, with spacing still wearing them with no solution. Dentist ed told me I could have some veneers applied to my teeth for about 2,000.00. Unsure of what I should do? I need my money back.

I have worn the invisalign dental tray for 18 months. The point, contant mouth sores, scarring of palate and cheeks, loss of a molar, possible loss of more teeth, severe migraines, and a host of other problems. I have had to stopped wearing them from 23 hours a day to just daytime and even though they recommend 23 hours daily. My MD went thru my prescribed meds, the migraines where problematic, upon reducing wearing the migraines improved. I am heart broken, waiting till my later years to finally resolve my teeth issue only to make things worse. I'm at wits end and very unhappy. This product is not what I was promised.

I paid 5,000 for Invisalign to a dentist who is not even an orthodontist but is allowed to promote and work with Invisalign. The reason I got Invisalign was to correct my bite or malocclusion which was chopping my teeth. Two years later I didn't work, my bite is out of place, all the pressure goes on to the front teeth while my back teeth don't contact each other. I am about to start a new treatment with braces and an orthodontist to fixed. Wasted 5,000 and 2 years.

I am in the same situation: Post Invisalign, I have dealt with severe gum and bone recession. I am at risk for losing some of my adult teeth, and after what they call the teeth are "straightened",I have a lot gaps(wholes) in between my front teeth, both upper and lower. The dentist is blaming the shape of my teeth. The periodontist said even gum graft surgeries do not help. My lower 4 front teeth are loose.

I have had the most horrific allergic reaction to Invisalign. After a week of having my first tray my taste & smell started to change and everything tasted bitter. After a few days of my second tray i had a severe reaction, couldn't get out of bed, i had zero energy, i couldn't even walk from one room to another. I was sweating and then goose pimples cold, had no appetite at all, in excruciating pain in my lymph nodes, so much so i had to have pethidine injections administered by the hospital. The hospital i went to couldn't find anything wrong with me and was told "you cant be in this much pain, it is in your head" I have spent a fortune on tests on top of the purchase of my Invisalign trays and have missed 3 weeks of work. My sense of smell and taste change was so intense it suddenly occurred to me it is worth me researching to see if its possible i could be having this reaction to the trays. I have since spoken to many people who have had the same or similar reactions. I specifically asked my dentist if there are any adverse reactions i could experience, he told me the only thing i may have was a slight lisp and tender teeth for the first few days of each tray. Having met the medical director of the hospital i was given Invisalign by they are very apologetic, had no idea there were possible allergic reactions and have agreed to refund the cost of my Invisalign trays providing their board of directors also approves. I have been told these trays are made up of a composite used in polythene, a toxic substance !!!! I am one of the lucky ones as i found out early but some people have suffered for years with symptoms. within 48 hours of taking my trays out my severe symptoms started to dissipate. I am now on a juicing plan to get as many nutrients back within my body as possible. My lymph nodes are still very sore but are getting smaller. I will be proceeding with a law suit against Invisalign & very keen to join anyone else who has been poisoned by this product. Joanna - 36.

Invisalign has ruined my life. I first looked into Invisalign (and more generally orthodoncy) as a treatment to malocclusion. After a year of treatment, I became inflicted with severe tinnitus and headaches, and after two years, when the treatment was over, my bite was just as bad as it was before, if not worse. Ultimately, the orthodontist had to grind away my lower teeth just so I could eat with gnashing my teeth together, and it even that did not address the original problem.

In the end, however, my greatest regret about this is that it led to the introduction of this horrible tinnitus to my life. I am a research mathematician, and now I can barely think straight. I truly feel that is ruining my career and my life.

I find it incredible that such an industry is allowed to exist.

I would be happy to elaborate, if it would help.

Invisalign did not deliver the promised results. Not only did it take double the time, I could not finish treatment due to severe TMJ it created. It is years later and I am still trying to find comfort with different VERY EXPENSIVE night guards and bite planes. I dont think I will ever be pain free. My whole smile is crooked due to my jaw sliding laterally. Its been a complete nightmare and no restitution.

I was treated with Invisalign and completed treatment in June of 2016. I had great teeth prior to treatment. It was suggested I get Invisalign to correct one crowded lower front tooth. I was told mine was a "straightforward case." My treatment consisted of 19 trays for a total of 38 weeks of treatment. Upon completion I was left with a posterior open bite. Only two back molars were touching on my left jaw. Obviously, I cannot chew and am constantly biting my cheek leaving painful sores. I am now wearing uncomfortable and unsightly traditional braces with brackets and rubber bands with the hope of correcting the posterior open bite directly caused by the treatment of Invisalign. At a present I have a jaw that is mechanically defective. I am besides myself that unbeknownst to me Invisalign has caused posterior open bites in other patients as a result of the thickness of the plastic over the rear molars. This should not happen to anyone else. Invisalign must worn potential users of this adverse reaction.

I have had constant tooth decay after invisalign. I have had a root canal. I was suppose to have two but because of the expense I opted to have one molar removed. my teeth hurt all the time. I have headaches , my gums are receding. This has been a nightmare. My dentist replies, these things happen. She says its the way I take care of my teeth. I know in my mind it was invisalign.

I was sold Invisalign for my crooked bite and painful clicking jaw. First I did 25 trays. The dentist then gave me a refinement of another 19 trays. I've done these last five trays over and over and my incisors are now practically sideways with gaps. I was told to hold my teeth together in an aligned position with a q tip for 15 minutes a day as the treatment for my jaw. This is extremely painful for me and has given countless migraines. Clenching the q tip caused the very ill fitting and poor tracking retainers to crack. I've been on the second to last for a year now (broken but I still try). They won't give me anymore trays.

I would also like to note that prior to starting Invisalign they said I had to have gum grafts. This process was extremely painful and expensive. I've gone for a cleaning elsewhere and the doctor was confused why I had a gum grafts done.

Within hours of making the moulds of my teeth to send to Invisalign I had sheets of enamel fall. They denied that this could have any connection.

I've contacted them to release my trays and supporting paperwork. They have not responded to any of my messages since.

My son has been through hell with his invisaligns - dentist burned his gums back to "make room" for the invisaligns after 3 years of "regular" braces (in the beginning we were told he would not be "eligible" or a proper candidate for invisaligns). His first surgery (2012) was to remove his baby teeth where his incisors should have been (they took his wisdom teeth as well) and attached chains to his canines that were growing sideways in his gums - chain fell off one side and they cut him open again - when his canines finally dropped down 2 years later they filed them down as apparently they felt they were now too big. Canine abscess- Swelling to the right side of his face so bad I hardly recognized him and honestly thought someone had beaten the crap out of him; eye sealed shut and lips swelled well beyond proportion - 2 days of hospital IV with a medication to help to take the swelling out of his face and a week of 2 different antibiotics- the infection had moved up under his eyebrow and heading toward his brain. Upon reading others with issues with invisaligns my son had all of the symptoms except the sore throat (this would have meant that the infection had reached his brain) and the cough - he tried just to put the lower ones in (he was told that if they were out of his mouth longer than 3 days it would set everything back to where it was) and they were cutting his tongue so he removed them. Dentist said he could put his "old" set in - I said no way in hell. He blamed the infection on his canine tooth due to the surgery - um....that was 4 years ago. He is not out of the woods yet with the infection - dentist won't touch his mouth until the infection is totally gone - well...that could take a while.

Have had Jaw Pain, tingling clicking and popping since I finished my invisalign trays. Now more then 3 years since my last and just using retainers the flare ups are excruciating. Dentist i see since i moved told me to go back to who handled the invislign but they were a dentist not a full orthodontist and i think when the did the filing and the bite changes he made everything worse. While I love my now straight teeth not sure the ongoing pain was worth it.

I now have a speech disorder following invisalign. I am nearing the end of my invisalign treatment and will soon have my upper and lower attachments removed after 8 months of treatment. Whilst my teeth are straight, they need whitening due to staining. The life-changing result for me was the slow development of a motor disorder over 7 months with my tongue when speaking. The sharp/rough back edge of the aligners has forced my tongue up into my mouth when speaking and now I project saliva from my tongue when speaking. I can no longer communicate with people face to face and will likely need speech therapy to correct this speech disorder. It is ruining my confidence and professional career.

I am on tray 15 - After an allergic reaction, I investigated and found they did hypo-allergenic trays, which they "supposedly" did for me. I've been taking antibiotics every two weeks to keep the allergies and congestion at bay until a month ago. I got so sick with headache pain, I ended up in the ER. Now $5000 worth of MRI, CT scans, ER and doctor bills later, we think the problem is the invisalign and would be happy to be a part of a suit. They MUST tell their dentist, while rare, these problems can occur.

After finishing all my trays I wasn't 100% happy with my results so for more money I was able to receive extra trays. The results were mildly better and so I started my retainers. Since then, I have had a root canal and a gum graft done on two teeth and it seems that this problem will continue since the retainers hit the gum line. I want to inquire more about a lawsuit and what can be done to cover these very expensive procedures.

Invisalign changed my bite dramatically. Orthodontist had to grind my teeth down to get decent bite. Several months after finishing treatment had to have two crowns put in, on my back lower teeth from splitting my molars trying to eat. Now several years later I learned I have root resorption on my front upper teeth. My freaking front teeth have to be pulled and replaced. Couldn't be more displeased.

I began with Invisalign in October 2016. In November, I started observing significant hair loss; the crown of my head was bare and my hairdresser told mi I had significant hair loss all over my head. I asked my Ortho if he had seen any hair loss issues and he said no so I attempted to determine what was causing my hair loss. I visited two dermatologists and two GP's. They sent me for blood tests and scheduled a session with a rheumatologist. Everything came back normal. My hair loss continued at a fairly rapid pace so yesterday I decided to do a Google search to determine if anyone else had this issue. Sure enough, I found several people on various forums who described the exact same thing I have. Additionally, I have developed migraine headaches. Today, I decided to stop Invisalign until my appointment next week. If my hair loss improves, I will be sure of the cause.

I too had severe allergic reaction for almost the entire 9 months of my invisalign nightmare.Full body hives sent me to ER, swoolen lips, eyes, throat, inside mouth blisters, now a autoimmune disease. My dentist had never been warned about this. I have pictures of my swelling and facial rash, hair was falling out. I am definitely interested in joining this suit.

I wore Invisalign for four years and my teeth are still not straight. I also have discoloration of my top teeth which are not straight. My dentist indicated there’s nothing else he can do. A waste of $6,000.

I have had invisalign since since2011. Since then I have headaches, earaches, I've had to rear crowns replaced as the retainers kept breaking my teeth off when trying to take them out at night. I was diagnosed with glaucoma and cataracts. I think they are toxic and poisoning me as I am sick and throwing up all the time now. My throat is sore. I can't prove its them that is causing it. But I believe it is the cause of what's been going on.

I had to go on antibiotics for upper respiratory issue from invisalign removable plastic retainers. There is something in the material I believe causing this reaction and it worries me that it can go into my system and cause further health problems. I was not informed by my dentist this would be a possibility.. I also have choking fits. I am unsure what to do but will let my dentist know.

I started wearing Invisalign in October 2017 - began to have severe cough, headaches, fatigue, knot in my chest like squeezing, tightness, burning. I started Symbicort inhaler, amoxicillin, and prednisone taper and nothing is touching it. My dentist says it may have been from disinfectant used in packaging the aligners I was allergic to. I have done research where it says 1 in 40,000 people have had respiratory issues like mine from the disinfectant.

I was informed by my dentist's office that my overbite was causing havoc on the status of my teeth, and that I was having periodontal problems because of it. I was informed that I needed to be treated with Invisalign in order to correct the overbite, and thus correct future ongoing problems with my teeth and gums caused by my overbite. If I am understanding what malocclusions are, they have to do specifically with an overbite. I just came across this class action, per chance, while searching for an unrelated matter with Invisalign, and from what I am reading, this expensive Invisalign treatment is not going to correct my overbite. Thus I would like to either join the class action or speak with a lawyer about my legal rights.

My daughter started invisalign and was on her 3rd set when the dentists added rubber bands to them. Within hours she was in so much pain. Thinking it was just caused from the new set and rubber bands. We waited, that was on wed. by Friday she was in the doctors office being treatment for blisters all over the inside of her mouth and throat. Missing a week of school and taking medication every 4 hours to stop the reaction. After returning to the doctors office to review test. The test did not show any cause other than a bad reaction to the invitalign. Now the dentists is wanting more test ran before he well treat her teeth with the basic braces. This is ridiculous !

Invisalign uses completely deceptive marketing and encourages dentists who are unqualified in orthodontics to do the same. My dentist coerced me into expensive Invisalign treatment by threatening to withhold a crown made to replace my front tooth if I didn’t pursue the treatment.

The aligners have caused 4 teeth to fail resulting in root canals. The pain of losing these teeth also caused me to stop the treatment so it was all for nothing. But I’m left with a mouth full of razor sharp teeth that my dentist filed down as part of this “treatment”. I now suffer chronic cuts to my mouth, cheeks, and tongue that result in continuous canker sores. Furthermore, the gaps he opened in my teeth constantly get food stuck in them.

Invisalign took no responsibility for any of this when I’ve called to find a resolution. They lie about they’re role in this process claiming they’re just a manufacturer of the aligners and that the treatment program is designed by the dentist/provider. Yet my dentist would constantly answer my questions and concerns with “ well, that’s just the program that Invisalign model designed”.

I am so glad to have found this site, and I would absolutely join a class action lawsuit against this corrupt company.

Invisalign was the worse thing I’ve ever experienced. After spending over 3 weeks in the hospital, diagnostic clinics and doctors offices with numerous tests to try to stop the vomiting, Intestinal issues and causing Gastroparesis, I found out I was having a toxic reaction from the Invisalign. I’ve missed over 4 weeks Work and incurred extreme medical expenses.

After spending thousands of dollars on Invisalign and having so many problems since such as many cavities, implant, two crowns, gum problems, I want to join a class action suit against Invisalign.

All of those happened to me as well with Invisalign; cavities, crowns, major gums problems and bleeding. No dentist wants to go further working on my mouth because it has also caused my front teeth to move and the wear down of the bone as shown in 2 separate x-ray dentist visits, and each a different dentist for a second opinion. I have a kidney disease that has become worse in which the infection of the trays have caused me to not remain stable with my kidneys. I'm done having to force life to be put on hold due to the amount of times i keep going in and out the hospital due to the problems Invisalign has caused my organs/body. I WANT MY MONEY BACK!

I have had the same issues listed above. I thought I was crazy! I made it to tray 9 but have been waking up for months with my neck completely swollen, swollen eyes, sore throat, swollen lips, and swollen lymph nodes which scared me. I thought I was fighting the flu for months. Some times I would forget my trays (I was traveling a lot) and my symptoms would subside later that day. It was awful. I then made the connection when I googled my symptoms associated with Invisalign and was shocked! I called my dentist office and told them I will be discontinuing my treatment. This is terrible :(

I’ve had the same problem. After 2 years the Invisalign affected my gums on my teeth. I have felt so much better with not wearing them anymore. My last set which was supposed to be my last wouldn’t fit on my teeth at all and then I was told that I have to wear the Invisalign still even though I was told after 2 years I wouldn’t have to wear them anymore.

Submit a Response Are you having the same issue? Do you have a solution? Either way, chime in!
