Who can be treated with Invisalign Express?

- Minimal rotation of the front teeth
- Less than 2 mm of midline correction needed

- Less than 1.5 mm of expansion needed per arch
If you don't meet these criteria, then, traditional Invisalign express will be the appropriate treatment plan.

How does Invisalign Express compare with Invisalign?
Invisalign Express is an excellent option for correcting minor orthodontic problems. If you have problems of mild relapse from your previous treatment, this is the best option for you. Since this treatment is made to address minor teeth correction issues, Invisalign Express has shorter treatment time. Patients are expected to wear the aligners for 10 to 20 weeks.
Invisalign, on the other hand, can treat most of the orthodontic problems that traditional metal braces can do. It has a longer time frame, and the patient will need to wear 25 or more aligner sets that are replaced every two weeks.
How much does Invisalign Express cost?
Since Invisalign Express needs only a few sets of aligners to straighten teeth, it costs less than the traditional treatment. The cost of Invisalign Express can range from $1800 and $3,500. The cost depends on the location, doctor's fees, and insurance.
