How Long Does Invisalign® Take?

Woman smilingInvisalign® provides a great way to discreetly align your front, most visible teeth, using a removable retainer like device. One of the best aspects of Invisalign is how quickly treatment can be done. Each treatment is specific to the patient, as is the length of time treatment is needed, but on average, patients wear their Invisalign device for 12 to 18 months. Our team at MVP Smiles can provide you a more detailed plan including how long treatment will take, specific to your needs, at a consultation.

Inviaslign is different from braces, there are no brackets, no wires, and the device is removable. Using acrylic aligners, they can provide similar movement of the teeth, correcting flaws. The patient is fitted with not just one aligner, but a series of aligners, each designed to make tiny corrections in the positioning of your teeth. The length of treatment is dependent on the work that needs to be done, though you should begin to see results in a matter of weeks.

Why Invisalign?

Invisalign can correct alignment issues without the obvious sign of braces. Using acrylic instead of metal makes the system much more your own invisible secret, making it more ideal for the professional adult. Our patient’s choose Invisalign because:
•  They Are Removable: We want you to wear your Invisalign aligners a majority of the time, but they are removable when needed. You can remove them to clean them, while you eat, when you play a sport, when playing an instrument or even for that special night out.
•  They are Clear: The clear acrylic plastic is a significant benefit to this system and why so many of our patients love them. We don’t necessarily like the visible sign that dental work is being done, and braces often carry the insignia of awkward adolescence. You can get the work done without the visible sign.
•  They Correct Many Bite Issues: Some of the most common reasons for orthodontic work is to close gaps and shift teeth into a better bite. Invisalign can be used to correct crowding issues and close in gaps.

Besides the benefit of discretion, patients love how quickly Invisalign works, with fewer office visits. Though we still want to see you about every six weeks to check on your progress, the series of clear aligners is in your hands, you move to the next aligner in the series about every two weeks.

How Long Does Invisalign Take Compared to Braces?

It’s difficult to answer how long treatment is comparing Invisalign to braces because treatment can be so personalized. On average, Invisalign treatment is completed in less time than wearing traditional braces, though this can depend on the work being done including the preparatory work required. The best way to learn how long treatment will take for you is to schedule an appointment with our office for a consultation. Our team is trained to examine, diagnose and then create a plan that will fit your needs.
