How Long Does Invisalign Take to Work?

Invisalign Treatment TimeInvisalign is a great treatment option for straightening teeth. From mild cases of crooked teeth and protruding teeth, to much more difficult dental problems involving serious malocclusion, overbite, or underbite, Invisalign effectively corrects a wide variety of dental problems. Whether your teeth are widely gapped, overly crowded or somewhere in between, Invisalign has an affordable teeth straightening option for you.

People always ask how long will the orthodontic treatment take?  As with most cases, the answer is it depends on your specific circumstances.

The average treatment time for Invisalign is 12 months.  Each clear aligner provides .25mm of movement to the teeth.  Logically – the more crowded your teeth are, the more time it will take.  The best way to insure that you are going to minimize your time in aligners is to wear them for 22+ hours a day and change into your next aligner every two weeks.
