Invisalign Express Braces, formerly known as Invisalign i7, is cutting edge treatment that straightens your teeth in a relatively short span of time with the help of plastic aligners fitted over the teeth, which remain virtually invisible. Invisalign i7 offers many advantages over traditional metal braces which are quite conspicuous and lets everyone know that you are undergoing orthodontic treatment. On the other hand, Invisalign i7 treatment relies on translucent plastic braces that are easily removable, safe on the body, and BPA free (BPA is an industrial chemical used in making certain type of plastics). Invisalign i7 is recommended for correcting mild crowding of teeth or closing small gaps, up to 2 mm wide. It is a treatment that anyone with the slightest discomfort in putting up a smile on their face, because of the crooked alignment of their teeth, might want to check out for getting that confident smile. The treatment lasts less than four months and at Bayswater Dental Clinic, we have experienced Invisalign i7 experts to handle the job. You can visit our clinic located in the center of London to have a free consultation with one of our Invisalign i7 dentists.
WHO IS SUITABLE FOR INVISALIGN I7 BRACES?
Invisalign i7 treatment is ideal for people who require minor tooth corrections to treat very mild crowding, like a small overlap of the teeth, mild misalignment or closing gaps up to a maximum of 2 millimeters. Invisalign i7 will require a maximum of seven aligners.
HOW DO INVISALIGN I7 BRACES WORK?
Invisalign i7 involves the same set of procedures that are followed in other forms of Invisalign treatment. Listed below are the step-by-step processes in Invisalign i7 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 i7 treatment. The software 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?
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. Using AcceleDent Optima though 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 PLASTIC BRACES AND DO THEY REALLY WORK?
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 result. 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.
