Invisalign Express

A Guide to Invisalign Express

Many individuals with a crooked or misaligned smile may find they would rather shy away from social situations or public speaking while at work in a bid to keep their pearly whites under wraps.

Unfortunately for some people, this can mean they are experiencing a lower quality of life compared to those who flash their grins with confidence, as well as enduring low self-confidence when it comes to meeting new people.

The emergence of cosmetic dentistry in recent years has spurred a dramatic change for many members of the public who previously believed there would be nothing they could do to alter their appearance.

In particular, invisible braces have emerged as a popular solution for people who have previously suffered from a low self-esteem as a result of their unattractive pearly whites.

What is Invisalign?

This course of action is a revolutionary system that is used for straightening crooked teeth, as well as closing any gaps that may have emerged. In many instances, this type of aligner is able to alleviate the requirement for traditional metal-wire braces that have been used in orthodontic practice for many years.

Using the latest in computerised technology and 3D modelling, a dental professional can create a virtually-unnoticeable solution that fits the teeth exactly and moves them into position gradually for a natural-looking smile.

How does it work?

  • Patients wear the braces for 22 hours every day
  • They are only removed during eating and brushing teeth
  • Invisalign braces move pearly whites over time
  • The appliances are changed approximately every two weeks
  • Individuals have regular progress checks with their dentist
  • Treatment time takes between six months and a year

Are they better than metal braces?

There are a number of reasons Invisalign braces are better than their traditional counterparts, including:

  • Comfort – Metal braces are usually more painful and likely to cause irritation and inflammation of the gums and surrounding soft tissue. Elastic bands and tightening forces can also cause discomfort.
  • Convenience – The fact the appliances are removed when eating and cleaning means the braces are less likely to get food trapped between them. In addition, the difficulty of flossing with metal braces means most individuals are likely to neglect this part of the cleaning process, which could lead to wider oral health issues.
  • Discreet nature –Virtually invisible to the naked eye, Invisalign braces are an ideal option for those people who may have been worried about the stigma attached to having orthodontic treatment past a certain age.

 What is Invisalign Express?

Also known as Invisalign Lite, this course of action is an orthodontic treatment that is designed to correct mild problems such as minor crowding or spacing. As it is designed for minor issues only, the average treatment time is around six months.

Does this differ from regular treatment?

This process utilises the same clear aligners that are used during the standard treatment, but it is much quicker in these instances.

Patients will usually require a maximum of ten aligners or less to complete the process.

Does everyone qualify for Invisalign Express?

Individuals who are interested in this course of action should seek advice from their dentist as soon as possible, as this way the professional will be able to carry out an examination and diagnostics such as X-rays and impressions.

Invigalign Express is not suitable for all orthodontic cases and is usually utilised among people who require very little movement through mild crowding and mild-to-no rotation. This process can be extremely beneficial for people who have had braces in the past.

How much does this process cost?

The price of this procedure is significantly lower than that of standard Invisalign because fewer braces are needed, as well as fewer visits to a dentist, which cuts down on clinical time and materials.
