What is Invisalign Lite?
Invisalign Lite is a treatment which has been designed for patients with minor orthodontic problems, including: minor crowding, small gaps between the teeth, poorly positioned teeth and slightly crooked teeth. Invisalign Lite braces work in exactly the same way as traditional Invisalign braces but there are fewer aligners in the series; consequently, treatment time is much shorter. The aligners are custom-made to fit the patient. Each one is worn for two weeks and then replaced with the next one in the series. Patients opting for the Invisalign Lite treatment will usually be prescribed a maximum of ten aligners and treatment will usually be complete within six months.
How does Invisalign Lite work?
Invisalign Lite works by generating gentle forces to urge the teeth to move into the correct position. Each aligner is custom-fit to move the teeth in the desired direction to give the patient a healthy looking, straight smile. Each aligner is worn for two weeks and must be worn for at least 21 hours per day, after which the aligner is then replaced with the next aligner in the series.
What are the advantages of Invisalign Lite?
Invisalign Lite is an ideal treatment for people who have minor orthodontic problems. It can produce incredible results without the patient having to worry about the physical appearance of the braces or the discomfort of wearing metal braces. Invisalign Lite aligners treat minor problems very quickly and patients can achieve the smile they’ve always wanted in just a few months.
