How long does Invisalign take?

Invisalign is an innovative and popular orthodontic alternative to traditional metal braces. Custom-made to fit your unique smile, Invisalign clear aligners are smooth, comfortable, and discreet.

How It Works

Invisalign clear aligners use BPA-free, fabricated trays that fit over the teeth and align them into the desired position. Over the course of treatment, patients receive several sets of aligner trays, each set snugger than the last. Each set gradually moves the teeth into a straighter, more symmetrical position without the need for tightening and readjusting wires.

They also work much faster than traditional braces so that you can achieve a straighter, healthier smile in a matter of months. Depending on your specific case and smile goals, Drs. Ryan and John Smith will determine the length of treatment and how you should wear your aligners for optimum results. 

We recommend patients wear their aligners between 20 and 22 hours each day for the best and fastest results. Invisalign treatment usually takes between 12 and 18 months to complete. However, patients often see results in a matter of a few months!
