When it comes to a mild case of misalignment, Invisalign Express may be the answer to all your smile woes. A branch of the conventional Invisalign treatment, Express is designed for people with minor alignment issues or a mild relapse from previous orthodontic treatment. Find out if this orthodontic alternative is right for your smile complaints.

HOW DOES INVISALIGN EXPRESS WORK?

Invisalign Express treatment is designed to use a small number of active upper and lower aligners only. Each set of aligners is worn for 2 weeks, just like full-care Invisalign, but for just 20 weeks or less. For many people, that is all it takes to correct that slightly less-than-perfect smile.

Express is not considered a full care orthodontic option. It is designed specifically to be a cosmetic improvement for your front teeth only and only if the degree of movement needed is limited. We will be pleased to explain the differences, limitations and determine if Express is right for you.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM INVISALIGN EXPRESS

With this treatment there will be a timeline of 5 to 10 trays throughout the course of the treatment and can last as little as 10 weeks. Express is a compressed timeline for patients that are looking for an affordable price and a quicker treatment format.

WHAT TO ASK YOUR ORTHODONTIST ABOUT INVISALIGN EXPRESS?

There are several questions a patient can ask their orthodontist about Invisalign Express:

  • How long will treatment last for?
  • How can Invisalign Express help my teeth?
  • What can I expect from the first appointment?
  • Can you explain how Invisalign Express is different?

INVISALIGN EXPRESS 10

Express 10, which operates on the same principles as Invisalign Full, is a shorter-duration treatment option.

  • Express 10 can be used as a precursor to restorative treatment or as a treatment for minor crowding/spacing cases (including orthodontic relapse).
  • Invisalign Express 10 is a treatment option for cases that can be addressed in 10 stages of aligners or less, and has some clinical restrictions.

INVISALIGN EXPRESS 5

For patients with minor orthodontic issues, such as very mild spacing, crowding and orthodontic relapse. Invisalign Express 5 offers the same high-quality Invisalign features you expect at a lower price. It is a series of 5 aligner sets that treat minor orthodontic issues in less than 3 months. Express is a more economical and sensible treatment option for people with minor crowding or spacing issues.

UNDERSTANDING LIFE WITH A RETAINER

Do you need a bit of an information guide to what life is like wearing a retainer? We have a curated article that details what life is like when it comes to wearing a retainer. Essentially, everyone should talk to their orthodontist about how their life will need adjustment once they acquire a retainer. This guide will be useful when a patient needs to have a retainer.
