What is Invisalign?
Invisalign treatment is a virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth. Using advanced 3D computer-imaging technology, Invisalign shows you your complete treatment plan based on your
Invisalign Provider’s prescription, from the initial position of your teeth towards the final desired position. Then a series of clear aligners are custom-made for your teeth to move them little by little.
The aligners should be worn for 22 to 23 hours a day for the best results. They can be easily removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and for cleaning in between your teeth. You need to have all your adult teeth before you can have this treatment.
Each aligner is worn for about a week before being replaced by the next in the series, gradually moving towards the projected final position. The treatment time depends on your specific needs and will be decided by your Invisalign Provider.

How long does the Invisalign treatment take?
The length of treatment depends on the severity of your case and can only be determined by your dentist; however, the average case takes about 12 months for adults. The length of time necessary for a teen patient may vary and can be determined by your doctor. During your consultation, your Invisalign Provider can give you more detailed information.
