For patients who are experiencing minor orthodontic issues, Invisalign Express can be a great treatment option. Invisalign Express works very much like traditional Invisalign does, but it is designed for patients who do not require as extensive of a treatment.
Just like traditional Invisalign, Invisalign Express works by using a series of clear plastic aligners to straighten your teeth. The main difference is that while traditional Invisalign can take between 20-30 aligners in order to finish the treatment, Invisalign Express is reserved for those issues that can be corrected in 10 aligners or less. Certain requirements must also be met in order to qualify for Invisalign Express. First of all, you must only require a minimal amount of tooth rotation in your treatment. You also must have less than 1.5 millimeters of dental expansion required per row of teeth. Additionally, you must have less than 2 millimeters of spacing or crowding per arch. And finally, needing less than 2 millimeters of midline correction is also a requirement for treatment. Our Invisalign dentist will let you know if you meet the requirements at the time of your consultation.
