How long does Invisalign take to straighten teeth?
The duration of Invisalign treatment will vary depending on a number of different factors. This may include the severity of the case, the age of the patient and the desired result, among many others. Generally, treatment can last from anywhere between 6 months to 3 years. Most commonly, the treatment duration is approximately 12 months.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Many patients choose Invisalign over other forms of orthodontics due to the unique advantages of the treatment. Some of these include:
Virtually invisible: Because Invisalign is virtually invisible and is completely removable, you can smile for photos without having to worry about your orthodontics being visible.
Removable: Invisalign is completely removable, making it easy to fit into your lifestyle. You can eat and drink what you want, and play sport without having to worry about damaging your orthodontics.
Custom made: Because Invisalign aligners are custom made to fit your teeth, they are developed to feel comfortable within your mouth. You won’t have to worry about brackets and wires cutting into your mouth. Best of all, they are virtually invisible.
Improved oral health: Because Invisalign can be removed, you can keep up your regular oral hygiene routine. This means that brushing and flossing will not be obstructed in any way.
