How Long is Invisalign® Treatment?

Invisalign® is a great invisible alternative to metal braces, especially for adults who want to straighten their teeth as subtly as possible. One question that our patients often ask is “how long does it take to see results with Invisalign®?” The answer will make you smile.

What Is Invisalign®?

Invisalign is a series of clear, custom-made clear aligners that fit over your teeth and straighten them over time. They can move your teeth in almost any direction! Patients receive a new aligner each week for gradual yet noticeable results and should wear their aligners for 20-22 hours per day.

Difference Between Invisalign® & Metal Braces

While metal braces stay on your teeth for as long as your orthodontist recommends, Invisalign aligners are removable and should not be worn when you eat or brush your teeth. This means that sticky and crunchy foods that patients with metal braces are warned to steer clear of are okay to eat for those that opt for Invisalign and that brushing teeth is less complicated. Just make sure to keep the sticky foods to a minimum!

Patients with metal braces are expected to have appointments with their orthodontist every few weeks to get any adjustments made, while Invisalign® patients are required to change their aligners every couple of weeks in order to see results faster. Invisalign® patients need to clean their aligners daily just as they would a retainer.

Determining Length of Treatment

As with all teeth straightening treatments, the length depends on how much correcting your smile, but the average case takes about one year. Keep in mind that Invisalign is optimal for those with issues like overbites, gapped teeth, underbites, teeth crowding, open bites, and crossbites. Patients that have issues with severely rotated teeth or their back teeth may not benefit from Invisalign treatment and should consider other options.

    I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my husband. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and she told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my husband know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Zuma zuk

    I was married at 32 and immediately tried to get pregnant. When I was unable to conceive I had blood tests for fertility and was told that I had an FSH (follicle stimulating hormone) of 54 and would not be able to have children. Even though the doctors knew that I had been diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis since age 25, no one bothered to check my thyroid levels. my TSH was measured at .001. My Synthroid dosage was lowered. a friend advise me to contact a spiritualist who help with fertility with his medicine, i collected his contact and explain my situation to him he prepared for me a herbal medicine which i took as describe by him. became pregnant very quickly, I had a successful pregnancy. I have my baby august 2017. to get pregnant at age 35 with my 2nd child in september 2019, thank you sir , this is his email contact if you require his help whatsapp +2348136482342
