What types of Invisalign treatment are there?
There is now a range of Invisalign treatments that cater to different conditions and type of mouths. The type of aligner that may be advised to you will be dependent upon the complexity of your treatment.
This type of aligner is used in cases where there are minor abnormalities for overcrowding or spacing issues. It can also be used for correction of minor relapse cases. This is particularly good for small aesthetic improvements or where partial treatment is required. You may need up to 7 aligners in total to complete the treatment. Treatment is often limited to the front 8 teeth.
This type of aligner is restricted to a Class 1 case. This is where the bite is considered normal and the upper front teeth overlap the lower front teeth by a small amount. You may need up to 14 aligners in total to complete the treatment.
These aligners can be used for most dentition types. The number of aligners will be dependent upon your treatment plan and the severity of your condition. Most design features can be used with this type of aligner and it has the greatest degree of flexibility in terms of treatments possible.
Invisalign treatment has multiple uses and is not just for adults. The number of aligners will be dependent upon the complexity of your treatment plan.
