The Invisalign system has been taking the world of orthodontics by storm. Gone are the days of only having one treatment method available to you when it comes to correcting your smile. With Invisalign, patients have the chance to fix the issues with their teeth while still living life without any hassle due to orthodontic treatment.
Today we’re here to talk about Invisalign Lite. This product is not only perfect for those with mild orthodontic issues, it’s also a great way to undergo treatment without having the whole world take notice of it. What is Invisalign Lite? Let’s talk about what it is, who it’s for and why it may be perfect for you.
About Invisalign Lite
Just like Invisalign Complete, Invisalign Lite consists of clear, removable aligners, which are custom-fitted to your teeth. Through a series of aligners, which need to be worn at least 22 hours each day, your teeth are guided into their proper positions. Invisalign Lite is perfect for those who are experiencing mild to moderate issues, such as:
- Slight alignment issues
- Small gaps
- Slight spacing problems
Invisalign Lite is perfect for those who have had treatment in the past but may have failed to wear their retainers properly, resulting in some slight shifting of their teeth.
Benefits of Invisalign Lite
The obvious benefits of all of the Invisalign products are they’re clear, and removable. This helps orthodontic treatment fit into everyday life seamlessly. Invisalign Lite has other benefits as well. Treatment time is drastically less than Invisalign Complete or braces, which makes this product perfect for those who need to correct their smiles fast.
For example, brides who need some slight adjustments before the wedding may be able to rely on Invisalign Lite to help them look their best in time for the big day. On average, patients with Invisalign Lite can expect their treatment time to be about six months or less.
How Invisalign Lite Works
Through a series of aligners, Invisalign Lite guides teeth gently into position within the mouth. The aligners are typically changed out in one to two week increments, and as you replace each set, your teeth move closer to being in their proper places.
You’ll be advised to speak with a qualified orthodontist prior to beginning treatment with Invisalign Lite to see if this product is indeed right for you. You can also expect to see your orthodontist less than if you were to be undergoing treatment with braces, as your orthodontist will give you enough aligners to last you two to four months. This is another reason why Invisalign fits into virtually any lifestyle so well.
Invisalign Lite and Your Treatment Plan
Speak with your orthodontist about your options for treatment, so you know all of your options and what products are right for you. Invisalign Lite is a proven way to get a straighter smile in a shorter time period, but remember, not everyone is a candidate for this particular product in the Invisalign system. That’s why it’s best to speak with a professional to determine if Invisalign Lite is right for you.
