How Long Does Invisalign Take?
Orthodontic treatment options can vary a lot depending on a person’s individual treatment needs and the type of treatment. One of the fastest treatment ways to get the smile of your dreams is through Invisalign Express. Invisalign Express uses advanced technology to straighten your teeth quickly and effectively. It is most appropriate for patients with minor spacing or crowding issues, or those who have mildly crooked teeth. In most cases, treatment takes about six months. If you have more complex treatment needs, your treatment may take longer. The average case takes between 12 and 18 months. Some more complex cases may need two to three years.
We can explain your potential treatment times during your consultation. We will examine your teeth and bone structure, take dental records and identify the primary areas of concern. These records will be used to create the blueprints for your new smile. We use 3D technology to transform your records into a virtual model of your smile and make precise changes to the positions of your teeth. Each movement of each tooth is carefully recorded, and the records are used to design the next set of aligners. Aligners apply pressure to the teeth at specific times in order to move them according to the treatment plan.
Each set of aligners takes about two weeks, so the number of aligners you need will tell you how long your treatment will take. Changing your aligners as recommended can keep your treatment on schedule so that you can get your healthy new smile as quickly as possible.
