What is Invisalign Swift?
So, what is Invisalign Swift? You’ve probably heard about traditional Invisalign…
...clear plastic aligners that can give you a straight and healthy smile without braces.
You may have also heard about do-it-yourself clear aligner companies (like Smile Direct Club, Candid, byte, and many others).
You may be wondering how Invisalign Swift compares to the original version, or how it matches up against the mail-order aligners offered now. You probably want to know if Invisalign Swift is the best choice for you or your child.
To better understand Invisalign Swift, you have to understand what it is (and what it isn’t). In this article, we will cover both.
We’ll also describe the process and costs associated with Invisalign Swift treatment. Ultimately, your own life situation and expectations will have to weigh the pros and cons listed below. But this guide will equip you with everything you need to know about Invisalign Swift and make you an extremely informed consumer.
What is Invisalign Swift?
First, let’s cover the basics behind traditional Invisalign treatment. Invisalign has been the industry leader in clear aligner treatment since 1997, with over 4 million patients having received Invisalign treatment.
The traditional Invisalign treatment can typically be broken down into 4 simple steps.
- Your Invisalign doctor evaluates a patients’ teeth and bite and then creates a digital image of your teeth.
- Your Invisalign doctor designs a customized solution for fixing your teeth and bite based on the findings.
- Your Invisalign aligners are fabricated in a lab and delivered to the orthodontist’s practice.
- Your orthodontist places attachments on your teeth in their office and delivers the clear aligners.
- You continue the Invisalign treatment at home, with periodic visits to the office in order to monitor progress and make sure your treatment is on the right track.
Invisalign is capable of correcting nearly any crowding or bite problems when used by an experienced orthodontist. It has become the go-to choice for consumers hoping to avoid metal braces and still get a healthy smile and bite.
Here Is Where Invisalign Swift Sets Itself Apart
Unlike the traditional Invisalign treatment, Swift is designed just for patients with mild to moderate crowding or spacing and no major bite issues. These situations typically require less time and money to resolve than larger teeth issues, so Invisalign decided to offer a more efficient and cost-effective version of their same revolutionary technique.
What’s an example of someone who would benefit from Invisalign Swift?
This patient (see pictures below) would be a great candidate.
The teeth seen above have mild crowding and a healthy bite, making this patient the ideal person for Invisalign Swift treatment.
Invisalign Swift relies on the same patented technology that you would find in the traditional Invisalign treatment. This includes what Invisalign is best known for – their world-class aligners.
Invisalign also stands apart in their individualized and customized care from a skilled orthodontist whose job it is to personally ensure patients get the best and healthiest smile possible.
Invisalign Swift is essentially a more convenient and more affordable clear aligner treatment from the world’s quality leader in aligners.
How Does Invisalign Swift Work?
Step 1: You Schedule a Free Consultation With an Invisalign Swift Orthodontist
To get Invisalign Swift aligners, you will first visit the office of an orthodontist who offers Invisalign Swift treatment. Invisalign Swift consultations are always free. This is so that a dental professional can confirm that you are indeed the right candidate for a Swift treatment. During this exploratory appointment, safe digital X-rays will be taken of your teeth and of your surrounding bone and jaw structures.
Your doctor will then evaluate your teeth, gums, jaw, and bite to determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign Swift treatment. Your orthodontist will explain any present problems, along with the best method for correction.
What sets an Invisalign Swift consultation from other mail-order aligner programs is that the treatment plan is always individualized and personalized…
…and you’ll never get clear aligners mailed to you in a box. 🙂
Step 2: Your Orthodontist Will Create a 3D Image of Your Teeth By Taking a Digital Scan
If it is determined that Invisalign Swift treatment is the best choice for you, the orthodontist will create a 3D image of your teeth by taking a quick and painless 3D scan in their office.
This scan takes about 5 minutes and can be rendered and viewed instantly by your doctor. From there, they can begin creating a customized plan to correct your teeth.
Step 3: Your Orthodontist Will Create a Custom Plan For Your Teeth
Your treating doctor will work directly with an Invisalign lab technician to create custom Invisalign Swift aligners that will give you a straight and healthy smile.
Step 4: You Will Return to Your Orthodontist’s Office to Begin the Invisalign Swift Treatment
To begin your treatment, you will return to the office. During this visit you may have “Invisalign Attachments” placed on your teeth. These are small, tooth colored attachments that help to move your teeth more accurately and will ensure the best results. No need to worry – these are minimally-invasive and offer little to no discomfort.
Attachments are one of the big reasons that Invisalign treatment works so well and can provide the best results. Invisalign attachments are just one more benefit that you won’t get with DIY aligner companies.
Once the attachments are placed, an orthodontic technician will go over all needed instructions and will make sure your questions are answered. Getting your specific questions answered is one of the big advantages of in-office visits with orthodontic professionals.
Step 5: You Continue Your Invisalign Swift Treatment at Home, Returning to the Office for Periodic Visits
You will wear your Invisalign Swift aligners for 20 hours per day, removing them to eat and brush your teeth. You will have a series of clear aligners and be able to change them at home by yourself, at the specific internal prescribed by your doctor.
You will then return to the treating orthodontist’s office periodically to monitor progress and to address any concerns you may have along the way. Only an orthodontic professional will know when your specific aligner strategy needs to be changed or modified. These occasional in-person visits guarantee the fastest and most effective treatment.
Once your Invisalign Swift treatment is completed and you are 100% satisfied with your teeth, your orthodontist will prescribe retainers to ensure you can keep your perfect smile for life!
