How Long Does Invisalign Treatment Take?

The typical Invisalign treatment is a great way to achieve a perfect smile in as little as 12 to 18 months. Each aligner needs to be worn for two weeks, so with 31 aligners, the treatment will take about fifteen months. The process usually starts to show results within a few weeks. Patients should wear the aligners for 20 to 22 hours a day and change them on time.

Cleaning them regularly is also important. However, some improvements may still be needed even with all this work. It's important not to change the tray prematurely, as the teeth may not be ready yet, but it's possible to use the trays for the maximum amount of time each day. AcceleDent Aura is a combination of orthodontic technology and comfort that can help accelerate dental corrections such as braces and Invisalign aligners.

In some cases, additional trays known as Invisalign enhancements are given to patients who are not progressing according to their treatment plan. Before using Invisalign, many patients have difficulty keeping their lips closed over their front teeth due to the space between the front of the lower teeth and the back of the upper teeth. To ensure that the treatment is effective, Dr. Lombard recommends using Invisalign chewable tablets or Movemints transparent aligning mints every time you reinsert them, and especially at the beginning of the tray cycle.
