Invisalign Lite is an ingenious brace that discreetly straightens teeth using transparent removable aligners. At the beginning of your treatment a series of aligners will be custom-made, just for you. Each aligner is designed to be worn for two weeks, gradually moving your teeth to reveal a straighter and more confident smile.
Invisalign Lite is carried out using exactly the same technology as Invisalign full treatment but Invisalign Lite is used to improve moderate orthodontic issues such as moderately crowded teeth. As an example, Invisalign Lite treatment can be used for those patients that had braces in their teenage years but had teeth position relapse due to not wearing retainers.
The treatment time for Invisalign Lite is likely to be shorter than the regular course for Invisalign - often taking as little as six months to complete.
Every aligner has been made to measure for every individual case. This is achieved by taking digital images and 3D moulds of the patient’s teeth to determine the size and shape of each one.
Most people need about ten aligners, which are usually replaced every two weeks - moving the teeth to their desired position little by little.
Invisalign lite has a maximum of 14 aligners which means it can be used to correct moderate orthodontic issues which need no more than 6 months of invisalign treatment to correct.
It is important that patients ensure they wear the aligners for around 22 hours per day and come to see us for a review every 6 weeks for an Invisalign review.
Invisalign Lite braces are not suitable for everyone. They are generally recommended for patients who have minor orthodontic problems, including:
