Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete.

Your final orthodontic result depends on your retainers, When we abstract your braces, we will commence the retention stage of your treatment. For the first six months, you will have two retainers, a clear plastic retainer to wear throughout the day and a Hawley retainer to wear at night. Your retainers should be worn at all times except for eating and brushing your teeth. Your retainer should additionally be abstracted when participating in sports who require a mouth guard.

Retention

Invisalign Express is a shorter-duration orthodontic treatment that works in the same way as traditional Invisalign clear aligners. It is an ideal option for people with minor crowding or spacing issues — including issues that occur from orthodontic relapse — and for those who require teeth straightening before undergoing restorative or cosmetic procedures, such as composite bonding or tooth veneers.

 

Whereas a traditional Invisalign treatment requires 20 to 30 aligners to move teeth into the correct position, Invisalign Express is specifically designed for people whose crowding or spacing problems can be corrected in 10 stages of aligners or less. As a result, the length of time required for treatment is only about six months.

Invisalign Express:

Invisalign Express can be used to correct minor crowding and teeth spacing issues, along with other minor orthodontic issues. After consultation with a specially trained orthodontist or Invisalign dentist, pictures and impressions of the teeth are taken and digitalized. Then, 3D technology is used to map tooth movements from the beginning to end of treatment, forming the basis for creating the customized aligners. On average, treatment takes approximately six months.

The near-invisible Invisalign Express aligners are custom-designed based on your treatment plan to perfectly fit your teeth. Aligners must be worn every day for between 20 and 22 hours, except for when eating, drinking hot liquids, brushing, flossing, playing sports or attending special occasions. The aligners are exchanged for a new set every two weeks and work continuously to straighten the teeth.

Invisalign Express Treatment: What's Involved?

Invisalign Express is designed to quickly correct simple orthodontic problems. Therefore, certain clinical criteria must be met, including:

 

 

•Less than two mm of spacing or crowding per arch

•Minimal rotation of the cuspids, bicuspids and incisors

•Less than two mm of midline correction required

•Less than 1.5 mm of dental expansion required per arch

 

 

If crowding, spacing or malocclusion (bad bite) issues are more complex, then traditional Invisalign treatment or traditional braces might be a more appropriate orthodontic treatment option. Your dentist will determine the treatment plan that’s right for you.

Is Invisalign Express Right for You?

During Invisalign Express treatment, you can keep up your active lifestyle and smile during social activities. What's more, because Invisalign Express aligners are easy to remove, they promote better oral hygiene, as well as a pain-free experience with less irritation to the gums and mouth.

Advantages of Invisalign Express

Be advised that many Invisalign cases require removal of tooth structure between the teeth (called interproximal reduction, or manicuring) to create space. Some cases also may require attachments be added to the teeth to create a better fit and control of individual teeth.
