Invisalign Lite can treat patients with minor orthodontic problems. The treatment will usually include no more than 10 transparent aligners therefore typically making the cost and treatment time less than the Invisalign® treatment.
Straighten Teeth Without Braces
Invisalign can be used to treat the vast majority of common problems for adults and children. Using advanced 3-D computer imaging technology to project tooth movement, Invisalign allows you to visualise your treatment from start to finish through animated visuals, which can be viewed online.
Invisalign Lite braces work in much the same way as traditional Invisalign braces, however the treatment is designed for less complex cases and treatment time is usually much shorter. Patients are usually given a maximum of ten aligners, with treatment often being completed within six months.
You could probably benefit from Invisalign Lite if…
- Have you used braces previously and your teeth have come out of alignment slightly?
- Do you have minor crowding or small spaces between your teeth?
- Have you noticed that your teeth have been drifting gradually out of position?
Invisalign Lite is a lower-cost and typically faster treatment than the full Invisalign. It is intended for mild or less severe malocclusions (misalignment of teeth), usually using no more than 10 aligners. As well as being used for simple orthodontic cases, it can also be used as a precursor to cosmetic dentistry treatments such as veneers, bridges or crowns.
Invisalign Lite is simple and can be used to solve orthodontic treatment on one or both arches. The beauty of Invisalign Lite is that it gives patients quick, affordable, high quality treatment, but to qualify for Invisalign Lite you must meet certain pre-determined clinical criteria.
Invisalign Lite braces are not suitable for everyone. They are generally recommended for patients who have minor orthodontic problems, including:
- Slight overcrowding
- Tiny gaps between the teeth
- Badly positioned teeth
- Poor alignment between the upper and lower teeth
