Short Term Orthodontics in Johnstown
If you struggle with the appearance of your teeth, but you aren't excited about metal braces and wires, Invisalign Go may be an option. The Invisalign® Go program is similar to the Full Invisalign program that uses a series of clear aligners to move your teeth into place over time. Invisalign Go is a short term - or limited orthodontic treatment plan that is customized to align simple misalignments or teeth gaps in a shorter period of time at a lower cost.
How Invisalign Go works
Like a traditional Invisalign treatment program, Invisalign Go is a clear aligner solution was designed to provide short term orthodontic treatment for less complex cases where misalignment or teeth gaps need to be addressed. Invisalign Go uses the same aligner technology but at a lower cost and with fewer aligners. Your Premier Dentist will take scans of your mouth and create a treatment plan to address minor misalignments or small gaps in your teeth. Your aligners will be custom made and shipped to your home with instructions on when to wear each aligner. Unlike the year(s) that traditional metal braces or a full Invisalign program take, Invisalign Go is a short term program that can be completed in as little as 4 months.
Advantages of Invisalign Go:
- Invisalign Go straightens teeth over time without metal wires
- Designed for simple cases of misalignment and teeth gaps
- Shorter treatment period than Invisalign, in as little as 4 months
- Requires fewer aligners
- Lower cost than a full Invisalign treatment plan

Disadvantages of Invisalign Go:
- Not suitable for a full range of orthodontic corrections
- Aligners can be removed which makes misplacing them common
- Invisalign Go aligners only work if worn for the majority of the day
- Aligners require daily cleaning and maintenance
