Invisalign is perhaps one of the most popular oral appliances at the moment. The number of patients choosing Invisalign to get their malocclusion treated is increasing year after year. This goes to prove how efficient and patient-friendly it is. If you are thinking about getting Invisalign for yourself or your loved ones, here’s a worthy read that will help you get a better idea about its types and the most suitable one for you.

The diagnosis

Our dentist will conduct a thorough diagnosis of your oral cavity when you visit our dental practice for a consultation and determine the type and severity of the malocclusion. Based on the observations, we will suggest the perfect treatment plan that will help you get perfectly aligned teeth in the shortest duration possible.

What are my options?

Invisalign Express: As the name suggests, Invisalign express offers a quick and effective fix for teeth misalignment. It is regarded as one of the fastest orthodontic treatment solutions and is used only for mild cases of malocclusion. If you need to get the teeth aligned before going for restorative treatment, such as veneers or composite bonding, Invisalign express is a worthy option.

Invisalign i7: Minor cases of malocclusion such as spacing and crowding can be treated using Invisalign i7. It is an excellent alternative to dental braces as the treatment can be completed in as little as three months, and you can keep your beautiful smile during the process.

Invisalign lite: Invisalign lite is often used when the patient’s bite is normal, but the upper jaw teeth slightly overlap the ones from the lower jaw. It can also be used to treat moderate cases of malocclusion, and the treatment would last between six to nine months. This option is often inexpensive compared to the alternatives.

Invisalign teen: As the name suggests, Invisalign teen is suitable for youngsters with minor orthodontic problems. The treatment kit includes tooth eruption tabs and six complimentary replacement aligners. Once every two weeks, the dentist will help you advance to the next stage of treatment by handing you a new set of aligners. Make sure the aligners are not on while consuming food, playing games, etc.

Invisalign full: It is used in the treatment of complicated cases such as overbite and underbite. Much like Invisalign teen, you will have to get your aligners replaced once every two weeks. The treatment will span between 12 to 18 months, depending on the severity of the malocclusion.
