Invisalign has become a popular choice for orthodontic treatment, and there are now two versions to choose from: Invisalign and Invisalign Go. So, which one is right for you? Here are the differences between the two given options.

What Is Invisalign?

Clear aligners, such as Invisalign, are used to straighten teeth. Invisalign aligners are almost invisible, unlike traditional braces, making them a popular choice for adults and teenagers who wish to enhance their smiles without calling attention to their orthodontic treatment. Invisalign aligners are comprised of a smooth, pleasant material that is soft on the gums and are custom-made for each patient. With the exception of eating, drinking, and flossing/brushing, the aligners are worn for 20 to 22 hours each day. Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks before being replaced with the next. Treatment lasts between 9 and 18 months, depending on the patient’s demands.

What Is Invisalign Go?

Invisalign GO is transparent and almost unnoticeable, much like regular aligners. They are also detachable, allowing you to eat and drink as you like throughout therapy. However, there are some key differences between Invisalign Go and traditional aligners. First, Invisalign Go is designed for mild to moderate tooth crowding or spacing patients. Second, the treatment process is shorter: on average, patients will complete treatment in just three to six months. Finally, Invisalign Go aligners are made from a new material that is even more comfortable and easier to wear than traditional aligners. Furthermore, Invisalign Go is more affordable than traditional, making it an excellent option for budget-conscious patients.

Which One Is Right For You?

If you are looking for a discreet orthodontic treatment option that can be completed in a shorter timeframe and at a lower cost, then Invisalign GO may be the right choice. However, traditional Invisalign aligners may be better if you have more complex orthodontic needs.
