Sporting an orthodontic appliance is seen by many as a rite of passage for adolescents. But not everyone needs this kind of work done on their teeth, and some only need minimal corrections. Why go through the process of getting metal braces applied if you only require them for a short amount of time? Invisalign responds to this problem with their Express plan.
Invisalign Express is for patients who have only a few, minor orthodontic flaws needing correction. You may be a candidate if you require:
• Less than two millimeters of spacing or crowding per arch
• Less than two millimeters of midline correction
• Minimally rotation cuspids, bicuspids, or incisors
• Less than 1.5 millimeter dental expansion required per arch
Express is perfect for those wishing to perfect their smile for a special occasions, such as a wedding, important birthday, or graduation. Treatment usually takes about six months, compared to the approximately eighteen months required of Invisalign Full. Your Invisalign Express dentist may recommend a retainer after treatment is completed to ensure the teeth stay in their new, healthier positions.
To see if you are a candidate for this option, schedule a consultation with your Invisalign Express provider in Los Angeles today.
