Invisalign Express is similar in design to traditional Invisalign, but it can be used for patients with mild crowding, spacing, or other alignment issues to provide them with a faster treatment experience. Invisalign Express can also be a great option for patients who have experienced orthodontic relapse or who need to make minor adjustments to their teeth as they are undergoing a smile makeover. Our Huntington Beach Invisalign Express expert can help you decide if Invisalign is right for you.
Traditional treatment with Invisalign can use between 20 and 30 aligners. These aligners are switched every two weeks to straighten and adjust teeth. Invisalign Express can often complete the required movements in just 10 aligners, which means that patients can finish their treatment and be ready to flash their new smiles in about six months. Our expert in Invisalign Express in Huntington Beach may recommend this unique treatment option if you have less than 2mm of crowding or spacing between teeth, have minimal rotation, and need minimal expansion or midline correction.
Invisalign Express Huntington Beach
If you are a candidate for Invisalign Express, you will begin with a consultation with our Huntington Beach Invisalign Express expert. At this appointment, we will take and digitize images and impressions of your teeth. These images are then used to create and map tooth movements throughout each phase of treatment. We use advanced 3-D dental technology for the most precise results possible. Once your aligners are ready, you can start your treatment.
Aligners should be worn about 20 to 22 hours a day, but because they are nearly invisible, no one will even need to know that you are wearing them. Just as with traditional Invisalign, you will exchange your aligners every two weeks to keep your teeth shifting in the right direction. They can be removed to eat or clean your teeth, and you are less likely to experience irritation due to their metal-free design.
If you are interested in a straighter smile but do not want to be in treatment for a year or more, Invisalign Express may be an option. Give us a call today to learn more or to schedule your appointment with our expert in Invisalign Express in Huntington Beach.
