As an Invisalign practitioner, we are able to offer Invisalign Go which integrates clear aligner therapy into our very own precise treatment plans.
Invisalign is perhaps the most popular orthodontic option
Clear aligner therapy has allowed us to improve our patient’s expectations, improve their oral health and provide rapid and innovative technology that has accelerated orthodontics into a new era.
What is Invisalign Go? Go wireless…
It’s a series of customised clear plastic aligner trays that sit snuggly over the top of your teeth, just like a mouthguard would.
However, they are custom-made to suit your mouth and are a lot less bulky and natural than other dental aligners on the market.
You will still need to wear aligners for 22 hours a day and remove them for eating, drinking, brushing and flossing.
Not every dentist can offer this treatment, only Invisalign-approved dental clinics will be able to offer Invisalign treatments.
This means we would have undergone the specific training and education to become accredited providers.
Invisalign Go is cheaper
The average cost of Invisalign is anywhere between £4,000-£5,000.
For Invisalign Go, our prices are as follows:
£2,500 for a single arch and £3,500 for a dual arch.
Ways to pay include upfront and interest-free monthly instalments up to 24 months with 0% finance. Learn more.
Do you qualify?
- Pre-restorative tooth movement from the second pre-molar to the second pre-molar (5×5)
- Invisalign Go Plus will work on tooth movement from the first molar to the first molar (6×6)
- Perfect for adults and teens
Invisalign Go treats only mild and moderate malocclusion types.
This means those suffering from crowding or spacing issues will be pleased to hear that Invisalign Go can offer them treatment times less than 8 months to fix uneven smiles.
If you have a Class 1 malocclusion, Invisalign Go will be perfect for you.
The number of aligners you can expect to receive sit in the range of 20-26, depending on your package or treatment plan.
Patients can expect typical treatment time to last from 15 to 30 weeks.
How does it differ?
The biggest difference to Invisalign Go to other Invisalign packages is that this specific one is targeted to small cosmetic fixes, rather than major alignment problems.
For example, class II malocclusions are better treated with the Invisalign Full package that will take around 12 months to move your teeth into correct alignment.
Invisalign Go vs Invisalign Full
The main difference between the full Invisalign programme and Invisalign Go is the length of treatment.
As mentioned above, Invisalign Go is suitable for minor tooth imperfections and simple straightening cases, using fewer aligners and trays treatment can be completed in as little as four months.
Invisalign Full will typically use around 30 trays in 12-18 months and in the severest or complex of cases, 50 aligners may be required.
It’s a common stipulation that Invisalign treats only simple cases – there are different variations as you can tell that are better targeted to certain issues over others.
For example, see the different types of Invisalign here.
Choosing between the two treatments will entirely depend on a clinical evaluation – click here to see what this includes.
What Invisalign Go includes:
- Invisible clear aligners: Bespoke and tailor-made aligners that have state-of-the-art features that are used to treat a wide range of cases whilst still providing optimal comfort for the patient
- Faster treatment times: Using the ClinCheck software we can create your very own Invisalign patient profile, which can be immediately uploaded to the Invisalign Doctor site.
- Advanced 3D imaging software: No more analogue impressions – just scans! We can take six thousand photos of our patient’s teeth in as little as 60 seconds – this means fewer rejections, no goopy impressions and more accurate treatments. Capturing patient smiles has never been easier.
- ClinCheck Software for happier results: The software allows us to navigate each movement of your tooth and helps us to precisely plan your treatment from start to finish. This also allows the patient to see how their teeth will move in each stage and what our careful predictions of what the end results will look like.
- SmartTrack materials: The Invisalign aligners are strong and powerful without causing discomfort often seen with brackets and wires. This material is proven to improve predictability to again better predict how the tooth will move.
- SmartForce attachments: These small, tooth-coloured shapes are applied to the patient’s teeth, which work to help the aligners apply the exact amount of force and pressure to move the tooth in the right direction.
- Invisalign Vivera retainers: Once the smile has been straightened and looks perfect, a pair of retainers are required to keep them looking that way. These retainers are also discreet and virtually invisible.
- Remote monitoring: Patients are given a series of sets and are required to check in with their orthodontist every 6-8 weeks for a short check-up.
- Shorter treatment times (just four months)
- Closes gaps up to 6mm
- Costs much less than the full Invisalign treatment programmes
- Discreet and removable
- Easy to care for
- Improved oral hygiene and health
Disadvantages & Limitations
- Not available on the NHS
- Does not work for serious malocclusions like Class 2
Invisalign Go & other treatments
As Invisalign Go is designed to be a faster fix to small orthodontic fixes, it is often used in conjunction with other cosmetic treatments.
96% of dentists use this Invisalign treatment as a pre-restorative technique
Invisalign Go works with the following dental procedures:
- Pre-implant spacing
- Straightened teeth before veneers
- Realignment for crown restorations
- Alignment for bridges and composites
What’s really exciting about Invisalign is that it allows us to deliver even better results than any other clear aligner treatment.
The combination of unique and advanced smart technologies like SmartTrack, SmartForce and SmartStage, means we can actually provide patients with a 75% more predictable tooth movement than prior, older versions of Invisalign materials.
