Express, like Invisalign Full, first requires patients to visit our dentist to have bite impressions and photos taken. Next, our dentist dispenses the customized aligners to patients, who return on a regular basis to get new aligners. This is where Express differs from Full: Instead of going through 20 to 30 sets of aligners, as they would with Invisalign Full, Express recipients receive only five to 10 sets. This can be extended by our expert in Invisalign Express in San Francisco, however, depending on individual progress. Within three to six months, patients are done and receive retainers to keep their improvements.
Patients who are candidates for Express should be adults who have very minor orthodontic problems, such as mild overcrowding and spacing issues. Our San Francisco Invisalign Express expert performs an exam to determine if individuals are candidates for this treatment. In some cases, patients may need Invisalign Full or another treatment instead.
Our expert in Invisalign Express in San Francisco often performs this treatment to resolve orthodontic relapse or help patients prepare for upcoming events where they want to look their best. To learn more about Invisalign Express and what it can do, patients can schedule a consultation with Dr. Amini, our dentist in San Francisco.
