Invisalign is a non-invasive, flexible and discreet orthodontic treatment for people who have malocclusions (misaligned teeth). Every patient is an individual case and for those who only require minor movements to achieve that perfect smile, Invisalign Lite is the answer.
These invisible braces are removable means to help straighten teeth and are a viable solution for those who either want to improve their smile for aesthetic reasons or for the improvement of their overall health.
Those who are likely to consider Invisalign Lite may suffer from:
You may also wish to use Invisalign Lite if your teeth are ‘relapsing’ after previous orthodontic treatment and you want to move them back to their previous set position. As this is a procedure designed for minor movements, you should think about trying other Invisalign products if you need more dramatic movement to get the results you want.
The treatment time for Invisalign Lite is likely to be shorter than the regular course for Invisalign – often taking as little as six months to complete.
Every aligner has been made to measure for every individual case. This is achieved by taking digital images and 3D moulds of the patient’s teeth to determine the size and shape of each one.
Most people need about ten aligners, which are usually replaced every two weeks – moving the teeth to their desired position little by little.
Because the aligners are clear and positioned behind the teeth, they are practically invisible and will not make you feel self conscious.
In addition to this, the results can be noticed very quickly by orthodontic standards – some cases may take only a few weeks – while the aligners are also comfortable. This is partly down to the fact that Invisalign Lite does not involve any tightening of the braces, something that can often cause patients varying degrees of pain.
Having straight teeth can greatly improve your oral health by making its easier to brush and floss, reducing the risk of getting dental cavities.
You may have had metal braces before or have heard about the limitations on what you can do while you are undergoing treatment.
However, while other orthodontic measures may force you to give up your favourite food, the fact that Invisalign Lite aligners are removable means that you can still enjoy the finer things in life.
That said, you should still make sure to take your aligners out if you do decide to eat sticky or hard food, or coloured or fizzy drinks.
Playing sports, brushing and flossing are also times when it is not appropriate to have Invisalign Lite braces on your teeth.
