Invisalign Comprehensive

Invisalign Comprehensive, formerly called Invisalign Full involves wearing a series of removable plastic aligner trays, which are virtually invisible, unlike conventional fixed braces.

Invisalign Comprehensive is a great choice for closing gaps above 4mm between the teeth or correcting moderate overcrowding. Invisalign Comprehensive is the treatment when more sets of aligners are necessary to complete the treatment course, usually lasting 12 months or more.

Who can use Invisalign Comprehensive aligners?

Invisalign Comprehensive can treat moderate to severe teeth crowding and misalignment. Orthodontists recommend this option when the case requires more than 14 sets of aligners. Invisalign Full treatment can be a short course treatment or extensive depending on the dental problem that is being corrected.

How do Invisalign clear aligners work?

Invisalign aligner system is an innovative treatment for straightening the teeth quickly using virtually invisible plastic aligners fitted over the teeth. Invisalign treatment involves wearing removable aligner braces. The plastic is safe and BPA-free (an industrial chemical used to make some types of plastics).

Invisalign Full procedure is the same as other Invisalign treatments such as Invisalign Lite and Invisalign i7. The step-by-step procedure includes:

  • An orthodontic consultation to assess your teeth, bite and your suitability for treatment – patients must not have gum disease, cavities or decay
  • X-rays, 3D modelling of the teeth using an iTero scanner and clinical photographs
  • Based on the records, the orthodontist will create a 3D video called a Clincheck video to simulate teeth movement so you can see the result
  • You will start wearing the aligners and visit the orthodontist for periodic adjustments
  • The treatment is complete after fitting your last aligners
  • You will wear retainers to prevent your teeth from moving back and prevent a relapse

What is a Clincheck video?

The Clincheck video is a 3D simulation of the expected teeth movements during the Invisalign treatment. It allows the orthodontist to plan an effective, fast and least invasive way to move the teeth into the ideal position.

How long will I wear the clear aligners?

The recommended wear time is at least 20-22 hours daily. You can remove the Invisalign aligners to eat, drink, brush your teeth and floss, which is not possible with traditional braces. You will switch to a new set of aligners every 7 – 14 days depending on the hours of wear that you are able to achieve.

How can I speed up the orthodontic treatment and make my teeth move faster?

Wearing your aligners for 21-22 hours per day may mean that you can change your aligners once a week rather than once every two weeks. This reduces the treatment time by about half.

Do Invisalign clear aligners work, and how effective are they?

Over 6 million people worldwide have successfully straightened their teeth with Invisalign. Invisalign is effective for short-term cosmetic orthodontic issues as well as complex orthodontic issues. The Clincheck video lets patients see the teeth movement and alignment before the treatment starts. Studies have shown that patients can achieve up to 87% of the on the Clincheck video with good patient compliance.
