Sold on the concept of Invisalign – but not sure which type will be the best for your bite condition? Don’t worry!
As Platinum Invisalign Providers, who treat at least 100 cases annually, we’re more than qualified to break down each system and detail which will be best for your situation.
For example, around five main Invisalign versions are individually used and designed to target and treat specific orthodontic problems, from overbites to crooked teeth.
Let’s explore which one we’ll likely recommend for you:
Invisalign has come a long way since its first launch, where it could only realign small cosmetic issues with the smile. Today, the revolutionary system can straighten complex bite conditions like underbites, crossbites, open bites and more.
Invisalign Full or Invisalign Comprehensive is an innovative straightening solution to Class II malocclusions and successfully treats moderate to severe crowding and many common bite conditions.
There’s not much Invisalign Full cannot treat. However, with that being said, it’s only applicable to around 90% of orthodontic cases. For example, Invisalign cannot close gaps larger than 6mm or realign the jaw itself.
As the extended version of the incredibly fast Invisalign Go system, Invisalign Full is 70% more effective, reliable and predictable than its traditional counterparts like metal braces.
Patients with minor alignment and bite issues love Invisalign Go – mainly because it can straighten teeth in as little as three months.
Patients experiencing moderately uneven, crooked, gapped and crowded teeth in the past have completed their Invisalign Go treatment within 8 months – think of it like this, the smaller the issue, the faster Invisalign works.
Invisalign Go was designed to cosmetically improve smiles, with only 4% of cases using it as a stand-alone treatment. 96% of Invisalign Go users rely on Invisalign Go to re-align their teeth into their correct positions before other cosmetic work like veneers, composites, crowns and even dental implants can begin.
Therefore, Invisalign Go is a great pre-restoration technique for patients looking to overhaul their smile completely.
If you thought Invisalign Go was fast, you’d be even more amazed at Invisalign i7. Who doesn’t want to straighten their smile in just 7 weeks?
However, if you’re looking to align moderate crowding or overbites, then Invisalign i7 is the not version of Invisalign for you.
Whilst Invisalign i7 is so fast, it does not work miracles. It’s purely designed for patients who want minor cosmetic tweaks to their smiles.
One crooked tooth in the lower jaw? Are teeth beginning to relapse after previous orthodontic treatment? No problem – Invisalign i7 will move it back into its correct place in less than two months.
Invisalign First is a branch of Invisalign specifically designed for children ages 6-10.
Invisalign applies the right amount of pressure at the right time to move teeth into their correct, healthy positions.
And parents will be pleased to hear that Invisalign First is the removable, invisible way to close gaps and treat bite problems as a child’s smile grows.
The Invisalign First system is equipped with extras to ensure you stay on track. For example, blue indicators will disappear after the allotted wear time has been achieved.
As the aligners are removable, your child’s day-to-day activities, like playing an instrument, will never need to be disrupted.
Just like the name suggests, Invisalign Teen is for teenagers looking for a discreet way to straighten their smile without wires or brackets.
As Invisalign Full is targeted at adult mouths, Invisalign Teen works with your teenager’s teeth safely and effectively.
On top of Invisalign’s many advantages, the Invisalign Teen system requires fewer visits (40% fewer appointments) and is less painful than conventional braces.
