Invisalign Lite

 

Invisalign Lite is ideal for straightening teeth with mild crowding of teeth or closing gaps, up to 4 mm. Like any other Invisalign treatment process, Invisalign Lite straightens your teeth with the help of translucent plastic aligners that are fitted over the teeth. The aligners that come with Invisalign Lite are virtually invisible unlike the traditional metal braces, which are quite conspicuous and attract unwanted attention. Invisalign Lite will require a maximum of 14 sets of aligners and the treatment will be completed in seven months. At the end of Invisalign Lite treatment, you will be able to smile more confidently, with your misaligned teeth now straightened. You can visit our clinic located in the heart of London to have a free consultation with one of our Invisalign Lite experts.

WHO IS SUITABLE FOR INVISALIGN LITE BRACES?

Invisalign Lite is ideal for treating mild to moderate form of crowding of teeth and misalignment. It is also effective when mild form of tooth rotation is needed for better alignment. Invisalign Lite is considered ideal for treating the front and premolar teeth, although the large back teeth or the molars are included in the treatment as well.

HOW DO INVISALIGN LITE BRACES WORK?

Invisalign Lite involves the same set of procedures that are followed in other forms of Invisalign treatment, Ivisalign i7 or Invisalign Full. Listed below are the step-by-step processes in Invisalign Lite treatment:

– Free consultation for assessment and suitability.
– X-rays, teeth impressions and other records are taken.
– A three dimensional (3D) video – which is also called the Clincheck video – is created based on the records to simulate the progress of treatment and the final outcome.
– Upon the satisfaction of the patient on the projected outcome, aligners are ordered.
– Patient starts wearing the aligners and periodical adjustments are carried out
– Treatment is completed when the desired alignment is achieved.
– Retainer is fitted to stop further shifting of teeth and to avoid relapse

WHAT IS A CLINCHECK VIDEO?

Clincheck video is a 3D simulation of the projected teeth and gum movements of the patient during the course of the Invisalign Lite treatment. It is based on a computer assessment of your dental records. The Clincheck video helps the dentist to plan the most effective, least invasive and fastest possible form of treatment in consultation with the patient.

HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO WEAR THE ALIGNERS FOR?

Invisalign aligners are to be worn at least 22 hours a day. The patient can remove it while eating, drinking or brushing, which is not possible with the traditional steel braces that require professional help to remove and re-fit. A new set of Invisalign aligners are replaced every two weeks.

WHAT CAN I DO TO SPEED UP THE ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT AND TEETH MOVING FASTER?

By using AcceleDent Optima you can speed up the teeth movement by up to 50%, which allows the aligners to be changed weekly instead of every two weeks. It reduces the duration of the treatment by half.

HOW EFFECTIVE ARE INVISALIGN CLEAR PLASTIC BRACES AND DO THEY REALLY WORK?

World wide more than 4 million people have been successfully treated with Invisalign clear braces. It is an effective form of orthodontic treatment that is suitable to treat vast majority of the cases treated with conventional bracket and wires (train tracks).

To date, more than 4 million people have been treated successfully with Invisalign worldwide. It has been shown to be an effective form of orthodontic treatment with fantastic results. The Clincheck video allows the patient to visualize the progress of the teeth alignment and the final outcome even before they start wearing the aligners. Studies have shown that it is possible to achieve up to 87% of what is seen on the Clincheck video with good patient compliance.
