All You Need to Know About Invisalign Braces

orthodontic treatment in bangalore

What are Invisalign braces?

Everybody deserves a great smile, but a lot of us are either embarrassed or need help with the perfect smile. In recent years, a lot of people are using clear orthodontic devices called clear aligners to straighten their teeth and get that beautiful smile. Unlike braces that use brackets with metal and wires to straighten the teeth; Aligners are a series of tight-fitting custom-made mouthpieces that slip over the teeth and Invisalign is the largest producer of clear aligners

Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that helps to straighten teeth without the use of typical metal braces. Invisalign has quickly revolutionized the orthodontics world.

The aligners are customized and made of plastic and are formed as a removable tray to fit the mold of a patient’s mouth. Since they are made from transparent material, people do not notice them easily, this is one advantage of wearing Invisalign clear aligners. 

Types of Invisalign we offer at Sakra World  Hospital Bangalore

Invisalign come in various types:

Invisalign Full

This is the most commonly prescribed treatment - mostly preferred for complex cases and includes several aligners throughout the course. The complete treatment period normally takes around 12-18 months.

Lite Invisalign

This type of Invisalign is best suited for cases that are not very severe or are moderate, also this treatment is mostly combined with crowns. Unlike Invisalign Full, where there is an unlimited number of aligners, Invisalign Lite has a limited number of aligners provided.  When using this type of Invisalign, the treatment usually takes around 3-7 months.

Invisalign Express 

It is recommended for a mild correction and is a faster and cheaper option of Invisalign - provides 10 aligner trays. The treatment involves two lengths: one makes use of 5 aligners and takes around 3 months, while the other uses up to 10 aligners and a time of around 6 months.

Invisalign Teen :

The name itself makes these aligners obvious - a great option for teenagers because of the constant shifting of their teeth to help them in the teeth straightening process at a young age. During the teen period, the teeth are not fully developed, hence, making it the right time to fix any alignment issues.

This treatment includes six complimentary replacements for dental aligners. 

While these provide an overview of the type of Invisalign aligners available, the type that will best suit your need should be discussed with an orthodontist who will explain you through each option and how they can help your particular case. Since every patient is different, it is best to speak to a knowledgeable professional orthodontist in Bangalore.

How Long Does It Take For Invisalign To Work?

Invisalign treatments are based on the severity of the case and the type of Invisalign you will be using, most of the cases take around 12-14 months and some even longer. Each patient will have a different treatment period.
