Invisalign Lite is carried out using the same technology as traditional Invisalign Full treatment, but it is used to improve minor issues such as mildly crowded teeth.
Patients who select Invisalign Lite are able to enjoy cost effective treatment using aesthetically discreet Invisalign aligners that is 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?
Patients who undergo treatment using the Invisalign system are able to see effective results through the use of clear corrective aligners, which could provide the ideal solution for people who have previously worried about the stigma attached to wearing train track braces.
The custom-made aligners are an increasingly popular orthodontic treatment for people with tooth alignment issues, as the removable fixtures are able to be removed for eating and teeth cleaning.
Although they are able to be removed, 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.
The Invisalign Lite system utilises the same technology as its traditional Invisalign Full counterpart, but it is designed to correct minor problems as it has far fewer aligners.
How does Invisalign Lite differ from Invisalign Full treatment?
As part of the Invisalign Lite system, a maximum of fourteen aligners will be produced by Invisalign to correct minor 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 minor cases that can be corrected with around 6.5 months of Invisalign treatment. Invisalign Full is more suitable for more complex cases that require 7-24 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. Only one Invisalign refinement can be added to the Invisalign Lite package at additional cost. Invisalign refinement comes as standard with Invisalign Full.
Can I benefit from Invisalign Lite?
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 badly 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.
How much does the treatment cost?
The cost of Invisalign Lite braces is lower than Invisalign Full method as a result of the need for fewer dental appointments and lower laboratory costs, as well as the fact that Invisalign refinement is not included with Invisalign Lite.
