Transforming a smile is a process that requires the hands and mind of an experienced orthodontist. It takes both advanced dental technology and many years of study and practise. Invisalign has many advantages over the traditional metal and bracket braces – the most important being that Invisalign is virtually invisible. Invisalign fits your lifestyle and doesn’t interrupt it, and at every stage, you’ll be able to see your progress and enjoy your smile transformation.
How Long Is The Invisalign Treatment?
Invisalign can correct smile imperfections and common orthodontic problems in as little as six months. The average treatment time for typical patients is anywhere from six to eighteen months, with some more complex cases requiring a little more time to achieve desired results. The quick, efficient treatment is ideal for anyone with a busy schedule, looking to transform their smile in time for a big event. Or, for anyone that wants a more convenient smile solution to address their dental concerns.
How Invisalign Works
The treatment works so quickly because of its innovative design. Every week for the duration of your treatment you will be given a new set of aligner trays that you will be instructed to wear for the major of the day and while you sleep. When worn properly, your smile will be slightly straighter with each new set of trays than it was with the previous set.
Why You Should Wear Your Aligners 22 Hours a Day, Every Day
How long the treatment takes will depends on a number of factors. Including how your orthodontist instructs you to wear and care for your Invisalign trays. Patients will need to wear their clear aligners at least 22 hours a day to achieve the best results. Since they are removable, you will be able to take them out for eating or to clean your teeth. But always remember that to forget to wear your trays is to put your smile at risk of relapse. This will ultimately take longer to correct. To ensure your smile is continually changing the way your orthodontist has planned, you need to consistently wear your trays. Compliance and self discipline is the key!
