How Long does Treatment with Invisalign Take?
- Posted on: Jan 25 2012
Treatment length with Invisalign is variable depending on the required tooth movement. The majority of patients wear 20 to 30 aligners per arch during the span of their Invisalign treatment, changing from one set of aligners to the next set of aligners every two weeks, so the average treatment length is about a year.
It is also not uncommon to wear Invisalign more than a year, or for as little as nine months. Before committing to Invisalign, you will be examined by our dentists. We first determine if Invisalign is right for you, and then we can create a customized Invisalign plan including the number of aligners required to complete your orthodontic treatment.
Even if your treatment length is comparable to that of metal braces, Invisalign lets you see progress at every stage. You will be able to see the movement of your teeth and the developing improvements to your smile. This visibility of results has been a strong motivating factor for many Invisalign patients.
