Invisalign Express offers a swift and appealing alternative to traditional braces or ceramic braces and existing invisible aligner options. Invisalign Express is ideal for patients with relatively minor orthodontic concerns. The treatment occurs in five stages and can be completed in six months or less.
Invisalign Express Eligibility
Invisalign Express is not ideal for patients with major crowding or spacing issues. Major bite problems can also disqualify patients. Additionally, major rotation of the cuspids, bicuspids, and incisors cannot be corrected with Invisalign Express.
Invisalign Express Process
After your eligibility consultation, pictures and impressions from your mouth will be used to create a step-by-step map of your treatment. This map is used to create your custom invisible aligners. The first set will be fitted to your teeth, and you will receive a new set every two weeks. You will only remove the aligners for activities such as eating, brushing your teeth, and flossing. Your progress will be monitored throughout the treatment to ensure that each treatment step is completed before you move on to the next aligner.
Invisalign Express Advantages
If you wear your invisible aligners as instructed, your treatment should be completed in the time designated by your treatment map. For Invisalign Express patients, this treatment time is significantly shorter than the time required for traditional braces or regular Invisalign treatments.
Invisalign Express allows you to participate in normal daily activities without discomfort. The ability to remove the aligners to eat and care for your teeth allows you to maintain appropriate oral hygiene without the irritation that is sometimes caused by traditional braces.
It is important to note that the shorter treatment time often results in lower treatment costs. Fewer aligners are used, and this also lowers the cost for most patients.
