Invisalign Express

What Is

Invisalign Express?

This is an expedited clear aligner treatment for milder cases of dental misalignment.

“Invisalign Express for Mild Dental Misalignment” is a quick solution for straight teeth. It uses a smaller number of aligners. This makes the treatment time shorter. But, it’s important to note that this method is effective only for milder cases.

The treatment is as comprehensive and effective as a full Invisalign program. The difference lies in its heightened efficiency and expeditiousness. Therefore, if you are in pursuit of a swifter path to attain straight teeth, this option may align well with your preferences.

This treatment uses a maximum of 10 sets of aligners (some may require fewer), and the treatment takes about 6 months.

Are you the right candidate for Invisalign Express? Your orthodontist has the expertise to answer this. They can assess if Invisalign Express or the full Invisalign program suits your needs.

Remember, your orthodontist’s experience is crucial in this decision-making process. So, trust their judgment when choosing between Invisalign Express and the full program.

Invisalign Express tends to work best for cases with mild spacing or crowding issues; the condition must be mild enough that it can be concluded with the 10 sets of aligners used in the Express program.

Certain criteria determine the severity of the case; your physician will meticulously assess the degree of misalignment (like the distance between teeth or the angle of a crooked tooth) to ascertain if it can be rectified within the Express timeline.

If you’re interested, visit your local orthodontist for a consultation. They will do a thorough examination, including x-rays and/or 3D digital imaging, to determine whether it will work for your beautiful smile.

Invisalign Treatment vs

Invisalign Express

The difference between Invisalign treatment and Invisalign Express is the number of aligners and the length of treatment.

Invisalign Express is a treatment that uses up to 10 sets of aligners. Designed to fix your teeth in about 6 months. This is why it’s called the “Invisalign Express 6-Month Treatment”.

On the other hand, a full Invisalign treatment doesn’t limit the number of aligners. Most cases use between 20 and 30 sets. The duration of this treatment can vary. It might take as short as 6 months or as long as 36 months.

Invisalign Express may not be suitable for all. It uses fewer aligner trays and a shorter timeframe. This approach can only correct the mildest cases of tooth movement.

If you qualify for Invisalign Express, you'll pay less than traditional Invisalign. It needs fewer aligners and fewer orthodontist visits. This means lower costs for you.

Invisalign Express is cost-effective. Achieve your perfect smile with Invisalign Express—an excellent choice for your oral health.

Invisalign Express Work?

Certainly! If you qualify for it, you can expect the same reliable and effective results as full Invisalign treatment. This treatment uses the same patented technology as traditional Invisalign treatment, with your treatment carefully designed by your orthodontist to determine the precise movement of each tooth. Your aligners are made of state-of-the-art SmartTrack™ material , which is clinically proven to move teeth faster and with better predictability.

If the Express program cannot fully complete your case with the number of aligners provided, your orthodontist will use extra aligners to achieve the optimal results.

Remember, not every case is approved for Invisalign Express. This treatment program is built for mild cases, usually a mild degree of spacing or crowding. There should be less than 2 mm of space between the gaps in your teeth, or 2 mm of crowding overlap.

Invisalign Express is a useful treatment option for patients who had orthodontia earlier in their lives, but whose teeth have drifted because of poor retainer use.

If your orthodontist approves you for Invisalign Express, you can expect effective, reliable, long-lasting results.

Who Qualifies for Invisalign Express

Who Qualifies for

Invisalign Express?

Invisalign Express is suitable for mild cases of dental misalignment:

  • Minimal rotation of the teeth
  • Less than 2 mm of spacing/crowding per arch
  • Less than 2 mm of midline correction needed
  • Less than 1.5 mm of dental expansion needed

Invisalign Express is a popular option for prior orthodontic cases, for those whose teeth have drifted years after their treatment.

During your consultation, your orthodontist will do a thorough examination to determine whether your case qualifies for Invisalign Express. This involves a discussion of your dental history, in-person examination, and  digital x-rays , and/or  3D-digital imaging .

Your doctor will assess your case to determine if you qualify for Invisalign Express. If your dental condition is too severe for Express, you can still receive full Invisalign treatment. Your dental insurance can be used to cover the costs of your treatment.

In some situations, you might need extra care. This could include tooth extractions or cosmetic dentistry. You might also need to wear traditional metal braces for a while before switching to Invisalign Express.

These traditional metal braces, often called “brackets and wires”, are a common step before moving to other options. These options can include wearing braces like ceramic braces or lingual braces. Remember, every case is unique and requires a personalized approach.
