How Long Does Invisalign Take to Work?

Invisalign is a popular orthodontic treatment that can help you achieve a beautiful, straight smile in no time. On average, it takes less than two years for people who use Invisalign to see results, and it can take up to six months. Of course, every smile is different and may take more or less time depending on the complexity of the problem you want to address. In most cases, Invisalign takes between 12 and 18 months to complete.

For more complex cases, which may include crowded teeth, treatment can last up to 24 months or even longer. Some cases are too complicated for Invisalign to be effective and the orthodontist may suggest traditional braces or another treatment option. Invisalign is a great alternative to traditional orthodontic appliances, not only can you remove them at any time, but they are also very discreet. Thanks to advances in the orthodontic industry (including Invisalign), some treatments can see results in months, sometimes even weeks, rather than years.

At your initial consultation, your orthodontist will give you an idea of how long your Invisalign treatment will last. It is important to follow your orthodontist's instructions to the letter in order to achieve the desired results with Invisalign. Your insurance may pay a certain percentage of your Invisalign treatment, or you may pay a certain amount in dollars. Using Invisalign technology, your orthodontist will determine your personal Invisalign plan step by step to achieve aligned teeth, and then the Invisalign laboratory will develop your first set of aligning trays.

Invisalign clear aligners are made with the patented SmartTrack material that moves your teeth comfortably and predictably. People may not even notice that you're wearing them as they are virtually invisible. After completing your Invisalign treatment, you will be given Vivera retainers which are custom-made from an impression or scan of your teeth using the same cutting-edge technology used for Invisalign transparent aligners. It's up to your orthodontist to give their professional opinion on whether or not Invisalign is the right treatment for you.

If the Invisalign treatment plan isn't right for you, traditional or lingual braces may be an option. No treatment is the same as everyone's teeth are different. Generally speaking, Invisalign is understood to be the fastest orthodontic treatment as it is normally used to treat minor cases.
