Based in Madrid, Geniova Technologies S.L. is a young dynamic company which has pioneered an innovative hybrid aligner solution, combining the strength of fixed orthodontic appliances with the flexibility of removable, transparent clear aligners. Their fast aligner system consists of transparent copings connected by a nickel-titanium wire. This design produces movement only in the teeth that need correction and allows the aligner to be removed easily when required.

To support Geniova’s expansion strategy, Straumann has provided a capital injection in return for a 38% stake in the company. The deal also includes the right to become the exclusive distributor of Geniova products.
