Invisalign Express is a quicker version of the popular Invisalign Full treatment that was designed as an alternative to traditional metal braces. Treatment with Invisalign Express is designed for patients that have only minor crowding or spacing issues. This treatment offers many advantages for orthodontic patients.
Invisalign Express works in the same way as regular Invisalign, in that the aligners are both removable and invisible while being worn. Patients tell our Invisalign doctor in Los Angeles that they enjoy the removable aspect of the Invisalign aligners, because it allows them to eat any food that they want during treatment. People needing orthodontic treatment also commonly enjoy the invisible nature, as they do not have to advertise to the world that they are going through orthodontic treatment.
Invisalign Express also offers some advantages over regular Invisalign. One of the major advantages is that treatment time is shorter with Invisalign Express. In fact, Invisalign Express works best for patients who can correct their crowding or spacing issues in ten stages of aligners or less. Regular treatment with Invisalign can sometimes require up to 30 aligners. This means that treatment with Invisalign Express takes about six months, while treatment with regular Invisalign can take a year or even longer. Since there are less aligners involved, the cost is also usually less with Invisalign Express.
