A straight, even smile is universally attractive. Invisalign, or “invisible braces,” has made this a much more attainable goal for many patients. However, for patients who only have minor orthodontic issues, the perceived cost and length of a full Invisalign treatment may be factors that prevent these patients from seeking an Invisalign treatment course. Now, Invisalign 5, a five stage treatment option, seeks to provide these patients with an affordable, quick, and effective way to correct minor aesthetic concerns.
Minor orthodontic issues include very minor crowding or spacing. Very often, patients just want to fix a small gap or space between their teeth. Other patients have already undergone orthodontic treatment, but their teeth have slightly shifted because they have not worn their retainers in a long time. These patients are likely to qualify for Invisalign Express 5.
With Invisalign 5, patients will still receive the great high-quality aspects of Invisalign. As with traditional Invisalign, treatment begins with a ClinCheck treatment plan that utilizes advanced 3D modeling to show the desired result. However, with Invisalign 5, patients receive a set of only 5 aligners, as opposed to traditional Invisalign treatments that can have dozens of aligners. The treatment procedure is otherwise identical to traditional Invisalign. Each clear plastic aligner will be worn for a period of about 2 weeks, and is removable for eating, drinking, and oral hygiene upkeep. Each aligner will gradually shift the patient’s teeth into the desired outcome, and treatment can be over in as little as three months.
Invisalign 5 also provides all the benefits of an Invisalign treatment plan. These clear braces are much more discreet than traditional metal braces, which can be embarrassing. The aligners are comfortable and removable, so patients do not have to limit what they can eat or drink.
Because Invisalign 5 has fewer aligners than other Invisalign treatment plans, this can be a much shorter duration treatment that is also much more affordable. Though costs will vary depending upon the complexity of each case, Invisalign Express 5 is more affordable than the traditional treatment plans of 10 to 25 aligners. Only a consultation with a provider can provide exact numbers.
