Invisalign Lite is a product under the flagship brand of Invisalign and is a removable clear aligner system that can correct teeth over a short period. This non-traditional orthodontic system consists of comfortable and near-invisible aligners rather than the more traditional train track wires. This is a very popular option for patients after a more discrete way to straighten their teeth.
What’s the difference between Invisalign & Invisalign Lite?
Invisalign is a system offered to patients who qualify for this type of short-term orthodontic treatment. Not everyone will be recommended Invisalign clear aligners as specific dental needs may be better suited to a certain type of brace. For example, if you have a narrow smile, the Damon system may be recommended. Damon is a fixed option that can broaden a smile and lift the face for a perfectly straight smile and improve the profile of your face.
Invisalign Lite works the same way as the complete Invisalign system, but with one key difference. This system is designed for minor cases that can be completed in a shorter amount of time. Because the system consists of a series of aligners, if you have a minor case, you will require fewer aligners and therefore be finished in a quicker timeframe. The length of time it takes to treat your teeth and how many aligners you need will directly impact how much the treatment will cost. So, for shorter (minor) treatments, the price will be lower. For even more minor cases with slight imperfections, the Invisalign I7 system may be suitable.
