Your needs are unique, so the length of Invisalign treatment depends on the extent of the tooth misalignment our dentists need to address. The average treatment times for Invisalign are 12 to 18 months.
When approaching Invisalign treatment, however, it’s best to set realistic expectations. Yes, Invisalign is advertised as a modern innovation for straightening teeth without metal braces. Treatment is discreet and convenient, and the results can be transformative. But for most people, it still takes the same amount of time to straighten crooked teeth.
Straightening crooked teeth is a process that takes time, and Invisalign makes it more comfortable and convenient than it is with metal braces. And the great news is that within a few weeks of wearing your first set of aligners, you’ll see some progress as your teeth start moving into position as planned.
If you want to complete Invisalign treatment in the shortest time possible, you need to commit to wearing them at least 22 hours a day. Your goal should be to remove them only for meals and oral hygiene, or if you have a big event like a wedding, reunion, or job interview coming up.
Here at Kennedy Dental, we love helping our patients achieve their best smiles with Invisalign treatment at our warm and friendly Bellevue dental office. Please call us to schedule an appointment with one of our experienced dentists to learn more about Invisalign.
