Articles What is Invisalign Lite and How can It Straighten my Smile in the City of London
Invisalign Lite is a version of the Invisalign product, which is used to treat moderate tooth misalignment problems, with between 10-15 aligners.
How does Invisalign Lite work?
Traditional Invisalign uses between 20-32 clear aligners to move the teeth into the ideal position, whereas Invisalign Lite only uses 10-15. This treatment is best suited for moderate tooth movement and is not the best treatment for patients in the City of London with complex orthodontic conditions.
Your 10-15 aligners will be created using impressions and images of your teeth and mouth, with eat aligner in the series differing from the one that went before. You will wear each aligner for two weeks, after which you move onto the next aligner, until your teeth are straight.
What are the benefits of Invisalign Lite?
There are numerous benefits to choosing Invisalign Lite over other brace products, including:
- Invisibility: Each aligner is made from clear plastic, which sits over your teeth, completely undetected. This allows you to undergo orthodontic treatment without the feeling of embarrassment you may feel when wearing a fixed brace with wires and brackets.
- Flexibility: With Invisalign aligners you are free to take your brace off during meal times and when you brush your teeth. This allows you to maintain a better level of oral hygiene and keep your teeth fresh and healthy.
- Swift treatment: Invisalign Lite only require a few months to correct the appearance of your teeth and straighten up your smile.
- Comfort: The clear aligners used during Invisalign treatment are much more comfortable than the wires and brackets used with traditional brace systems.
Patients who have severe or complex orthodontic conditions are generally not suitable for Invisalign Lite, but may find the same discreet tooth movement they need with traditional Invisalign or with tooth coloured or lingual fixed braces.
