If you have been considering teeth straightening treatments, you have most likely discovered Invisalign® as part of your research. This popular brace system uses a series of clear aligners to gradually move teeth into a more desirable position. 14 million smiles around the world have been improved thanks to Invisalign treatment, so it could be time that you joined them! Before you get in touch to book your initial consultation, it may be helpful to learn about the different types of systems so you can see which Invisalign is the best for you.

Invisalign is a sought-after option for correcting misaligned or crooked teeth. The treatment method involves using clear aligners made of medical-grade plastic that are thin and almost invisible. Every two weeks, a new set of aligners is used to apply precise forces on the teeth, gradually shifting them into the desired alignment. It's an effective treatment for various dental issues such as overlapping teeth, gaps or misalignments.
The main benefit of Invisalign is that the aligners are easy to remove, allowing you to indulge in your favourite foods and brush and floss your teeth with ease.
For patients with minor orthodontic issues, Invisalign Lite is an effective treatment option. This technique utilises a maximum of ten transparent aligners to gently shift the teeth into the desired position. With fewer aligners than the standard Invisalign treatment, patients can expect to complete the treatment within as little as six months. Invisalign Lite can also be used as a preparatory treatment to move the teeth into the correct position before undergoing other cosmetic dental procedures like crowns, veneers or bridges.
This treatment is perfect for minor crowding, small gaps between the teeth, or poor alignment between the upper and lower teeth.
The benefits of Invisalign Lite include shorter treatment times and lower costs compared to the standard Invisalign treatment.
Invisalign i7 is a popular treatment for minor orthodontic issues that require subtle tooth adjustments to enhance the appearance of your smile. This approach utilises only seven transparent aligners, making it a convenient alternative to traditional braces and a faster option than standard Invisalign treatment.
This treatment is suitable for minor crowding, spacing or orthodontic relapse. The benefits of Invisalign i7 include completing the treatment in as little as three months. If seven aligners are not enough to achieve the desired alignment, additional aligners can be added to the treatment plan, making it totally tailored to each patient’s needs.
Invisalign Teen is a customised treatment designed specifically for teenagers with misalignment issues who have not yet grown all of their adult teeth. While it works similarly to standard Invisalign treatment, it is uniquely designed to accommodate the eruption of adult teeth. The aligners come with a blue wear indicator, which helps to gauge wear time and ensure that your teen is wearing their aligners as required.
One of the key benefits of Invisalign Teen is that it starts working from the very first set of aligners, gradually shifting the teeth into the desired position. In addition, it does not require any significant changes to lifestyle, as the aligners are nearly invisible and can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing. Furthermore, Invisalign Teen comes with free replacement aligners in case any of them get lost, making it a convenient and cost-effective treatment option for teenagers.
