Minor flaws in the alignment of your teeth might not be enough to make you want to go through the hassle of bulky metal braces. Invisalign Express allows you to fix those little flaws and get the straighter smile you want. The Invisalign system uses clear computer-designed trays to adjust the position of each tooth. The aligners are almost invisible, and they are removable. If your orthodontic issues are minor or you are a candidate for a smile makeover, this system might be right for you. Finding out if you are a candidate is as simple as scheduling an appointment with our team.
Invisalign is designed to work quickly and effectively, and Invisalign Express is designed to speed the process even more. Traditional treatment requires 20 to 30 aligners on average before the process is complete, but the express system often finishes the job with just 10 aligners and about six months. You can still enjoy all the benefits of Invisalign, however, including smooth aligners that will not irritate your mouth and the convenience of a system that fits comfortably into even the busiest of lifestyles. Once you schedule your consultation, you can be well on your way to a new smile in just a few months.
You might be a candidate if you:
- Have minimally rotated front teeth
- Have less than 2 mm of crowding per arch
- Have less than 2 mm of spacing per arch
- Need less than 2 mm of midline correction
- Need less than 1.5 mm of expansion per arch
To begin your Invisalign Express treatment, you will need to have dental impressions, X-rays and other records taken. These are used to create a 3D computerized model of your mouth. This model is adjusted until each tooth is in its proper position. The movements are recorded and used to create your aligners. Once the aligners are made, you will wear them 22 hours a day every day, including when you are asleep. Some patients may have manicuring or enamel contouring to create more space between their teeth. This allows for more precise tooth movements. You will return to visit our office every four to six weeks for a checkup, and we will make sure that you are progressing exactly as expected.
During treatment, you can enjoy better confidence without the worry of unsightly braces, and you can keep your teeth clean and healthy by removing the aligners each time you brush and floss. You can even keep eating your favorite foods. Call our office today learn more about Invisalign Express and to schedule your consultation with our dental care team.
