Invisalign Lite is carried out using the same technology as traditional Invisalign Full treatment, but it is used to improve moderate orthodontic issues such as moderately crowded teeth. Patients who select Invisalign Lite are able to enjoy cost effective treatment using aesthetically discreet Invisalign aligners that are almost invisible to the eye, which can improve the alignment of misaligned teeth. Invisalign Lite treatment is Ideal for those patients who wish to have veneers but wish to straighten their teeth beforehand to reduce the tooth shaving necessary for veneers or for those patients that had braces earlier in life but have had relapse afterwards due to not wearing retainers.
What is the Invisalign Lite system?
Invisalign Lite has a maximum of 14 aligners which means it can be used to correct moderate orthodontic issues which need no more than 6 months of orthodontic treatment to correct. For cases that due to their complexity require longer treatment than 6 months, Invisalign Full treatment is recommended. Although Invisalign Lite aligners are removable, it is recommended that patients ensure they wear the aligners for around 20-22 hours per day to ensure they are able to enjoy the results over a shorter period of time. Patients usually need to come to see us for a review every 6 weeks.
At Pearl Dental Clinic we are one of few clinics in UK that Provide Invisalign using Invisalign iTero digital scanning.
The Invisalign iTero handheld wand takes a digital, 3D image of your teeth, preventing the need for traditional impressions which can cause some patients to gag. You can look at the iTero 3D image of your teeth on the screen in real-time. The iTero scan also allows you to see a FREE preview of your Invisalign treatment before the case is submitted to Invisalign. Rather than posting impressions to the lab to be scanned which could take weeks, the digital image is electronically sent to the Invisalign lab immediately and is available in the Invisalign Clincheck system the next day. The accuracy and detail of the Invisalign iTero digital scans vs traditional teeth impressions is kind of like watching high definition TV over standard definition TV. These digital scans don’t need to be rescanned so by removing the “clay modelling step” we have greatly improved the accuracy and speed of your Invisalign treatment.
- Once the ClinCheck plan is approved, Invisalign will then make a series of custom made aligners that will only fit you. Each aligner is slightly different, moving your teeth gradually into the desired position. You wear each aligner for one-two weeks, before moving on to the next aligner in the series.
- Treatment length will vary depending on your case, but the average Invisalign Lite treatment time will be around six months. For patients looking for fixed braces orthodontic treatment, we offer many other braces systems such as Simpli5, Damon braces, Incognito Lingual braces, STb Social 6 Lingual braces, 6 month smiles and Fastbraces.
- We will see you for a progress review every four to six weeks and you will then receive your new aligners. Each aligner will move your teeth little by little, week by week, until your teeth reach the desired position.
- Length of treatment can be greatly reduced with AcceleDent, the only fast, safe and gentle way to speed up orthodontic treatment by as much as 50%.
How does Invisalign Lite differ from Invisalign Full treatment?
As part of the Invisalign Lite system, a maximum of 14 aligners will be produced by Invisalign to correct moderate alignment problems. Invisalign Full treatment however can have an unlimited number of aligners as required to straighten more complex alignment cases. This means that Invisalign Lite treatment is suitable for moderate cases that can be corrected with around 6.5 months of Invisalign treatment. Invisalign Full is more suitable for more complex cases that require 7-15 months of treatment. Invisalign Lite does not have Invisalign refinement as standard. Invisalign refinement is fine tuning Invisalign treatment carried out at the end of Invisalign treatment which improves the final results. Invisalign refinement can be added to the Invisalign Lite package at an additional £500 cost. Invisalign refinement comes included as standard with Invisalign Full.
The Invisalign Lite Procedure
If your teeth are suitable for Invisalign Lite, your Pearl Dental Clinic dentist will create an exact mould of your teeth, as well as take photographs and X-rays to ensure the best results can be achieved. Following this, the impressions and images will be sent to the Invisalign dental laboratory in America so that Invisalign Clincheck can be created. Invisalign Clincheck is software that shows patients a preview of the results possible with Invisalign using before and after videos and also gives exact details about the treatment planned. Once patients confirm that they are happy with their Invisalign Clincheck plan, then Invisalign start constructing the Invisalign aligners. At your Invisalign consultation visit, if your Pearl Dental Clinic dentist feels that your teeth are too severely misaligned to provide sufficient correction with Invisalign Lite, alternative treatments will be suggested from the wide range of invisible braces options available at Pearl Dental Clinic. Once the Invisalign Lite aligners are fitted, your Pearl Dental Clinic dentist will then need to see you every 6 weeks throughout the Invisalign process to monitor the progress of your treatment and carry out any adjustments necessary.
