What Makes Invisalign® Express Different

Have you ever heard of Invisalign Express? Our community knows that we are Invisalign Diamond Plus providers and we offer the highest quality of Invisalign treatment in the area, but many people don’t realize that we also offer the specialized Invisalign Express treatment too. In fact, many people don’t know what this treatment is!

The Invisalign Express treatment option offers a quicker path to beautiful, straight teeth, using fewer aligners than standard Invisalign treatment.

Invisalign Express is fast, safe, convenient and costs less than traditional treatment. Here’s what you need to know about Invisalign Express, how it differs from standard Invisalign treatment, and which cases it best suits.

(If you’re already interested in Invisalign Express, go ahead and request your complimentary consultation with one of our experienced orthodontists in Northwest Florida. Find out if you’re a good Invisalign Express candidate!)

What is Invisalign Express?

Invisalign Express is a fast-track treatment for teeth straightening, and it’s available for people who don’t require a full treatment of Invisalign. This includes cases of mild to moderate crowding or spacing.

Invisalign is considered one of the best, most technologically-advanced treatment systems available on the market, but how does Invisalign Express stack up against the original?

Like the standard Invisalign clear aligner treatment, Invisalign Express uses a series of custom-designed clear aligners. Both treatments require you to switch out your aligners for new sets of aligners every 1 to 2 weeks to progress treatment. With every new set, your teeth move closer and closer to the beautiful end result.

How is Invisalign Express Different?

So, what makes Invisalign Express different? The main difference is a reduced treatment length with fewer clear aligner sets.

It’s important to understand that not everyone will be an Invisalign Express candidate, as this reduced treatment is only effective for people who have mild cases of misalignment. Plus, it works best on front teeth.

Compare the differences:

 

Invisalign Express

 

Invisalign Full

 

Average Treatment Time

 

About 6 Months

 

18 to 36 Months

 

Treatable Conditions

 

Mild teeth crowding, crookedness or spacing. Orthodontic relapse (from not wearing your retainer after previous treatment)

 

Mild to severe cases of bite misalignments (overbite, underbite, open bite, cross bite) or dental misalignments (crookedness, crowding, spacing)

 

Number of Aligner Sets

 

10 Maximum

 

20 to 30, or more if necessary

 

Invisalign Express is generally not considered suitable for young children due to their developing teeth and jaw bones. Kids typically require more long-term monitoring and correction, so the six months or less of Express treatment may not get the results children need.

How much does Invisalign Express cost?

We don’t do one-size-fits-all treatment. Your monthly Invisalign Express costs will depend on a number of factors, including the length of your treatment, the severity of your condition, your orthodontic insurance coverage (if you have it) and the payment plan you choose.

We offer a number of affordable payment plans, including in-house financing with 0% interest, full-payment discounts, outside financing with CareCredit, little to no down-payment options and more! We want everyone to experience a beautiful, healthy smile without breaking the bank. We’ll discuss treatment costs at your first visit!

Invisalign Express Results

When you choose Fishbein Orthodontics for your Invisalign Express treatment, you can rest assured that your results will be nothing short of exceptional. Our orthodontists have created thousands of beautiful smiles with Invisalign.

Invisalign Express treatment may be for mild cases, but the results you can experience from treatment will make a drastic difference in your quality of life. A small gap in the front teeth or a slight misalignment can have a dramatic influence on not only your smile and your self-confidence, but your bite functionality and chewing capability too!

What’s involved in Invisalign Express Treatment?

To start, we’ll perform a free thorough orthodontic exam to ensure that you’re a suitable Invisalign Express candidate.

During this exam, your orthodontist will take X-rays and digital impressions of your smile, using the advanced iTero® digital scanner. We’ll assess your condition, including the foundation below the gumline, to determine the best treatment method.

If you’re a good candidate for Invisalign Express, your clear aligners will be custom-designed and printed just for you. We’ll discuss how long to wear each set of aligners (typically 1 to 2 weeks) before trading out your current set for a new one.

You’ll be advised to wear your aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours a day to maximize the effectiveness of your treatment. We’ll tell you how often to visit us for check-in appointments, and before you know it, your treatment will be over and your beautiful smile will be yours to keep for a lifetime!
