Traditional Invisalign® treatment can take up to 18 months to complete. When compared to the two to three years that may be required for braces, Invisalign is clearly the perfect choice for treating moderate levels of malocclusion. However, for people with less pronounced bite issues, Invisalign may be more treatment than necessary.
Introduced in 2005, Invisalign Express® offers the ideal solution for treating mild levels of malocclusion. During a treatment period often lasting less than eight months, Invisalign Express can correct issues such as:
- Small gaps and spaces
- Minor crowding
- Slightly crooked presentation
- Some cases of under and overbite
Invisalign Express offers a quick, safe, and incredibly effective way to address a number of alignment issues. During your consultation with Dr. Morency it can be determined if Invisalign Express is the best solution for your smile.
Advantages of Invisalign Express
Invisalign Express naturally corrects bite issues, making it an attractive alternative to cosmetic treatments such as porcelain veneers for some of our patients.
When used as an alternative to braces, Invisalign Express offers benefits such as:
- No interference with your oral hygiene routine
- No dietary restrictions
- Reduced discomfort
- Less noticeable
Invisalign Express aligner trays are made of the same BPA-free, soft, clear plastic as used for traditional Invisalign and Invisalign Teen®. This material is not only more aesthetically pleasing than braces, it will not cut or irritate sensitive oral tissue, making your treatment period significantly more comfortable.
Invisalign Express is ideal for treating minor malocclusion, but is not right for everyone. During your initial consultation at Fantastic Smiles we can assess your bite issues and help you determine if Invisalign Express is the best choice for your smile.
