Invisalign Express works just like conventional Invisalign, but it is meant to get the job done faster. Traditional braces can take anywhere from 18 to 24 months, while the average Invisalign treatment case usually takes between 12 and 18 months. Invisalign Express is there to straighten your smile in just six months. You may be a candidate for Invisalign Express if you have minor crowding or spacing issues, orthodontic relapse or other minor orthodontic problems.
The treatment process works the same as the conventional aligners do, but Invisalign Express uses only about 10 stages of aligners. With our cosmetic dentist, each aligner is worn about two weeks at a time before you move to the next aligner in the series. For the best results, you may need manicuring to create more space between the teeth or buttons. This allows us to apply highly focused pressure on specific points of the teeth. These specialized treatments help Invisalign Express work quickly and efficiently.
During your treatment, you will need to maintain good dental hygiene, but you will not need to change your diet. Since you can take your aligners out when you eat and put them back in after you brush and floss, you can still enjoy your favorite foods and snacks.
