Straighten Your Smile Invisibly With Clear Braces
How Does Invisalign Work?
Fundamentally, Invisalign works the same way as traditional orthodontic treatment: It puts gentle, sustained pressure on the teeth to slowly move them into their ideal positions over time. The main difference is that it relies on a series of thin, plastic aligners instead of brackets and wires.
Then you'll return about 3 weeks later to pick up your first pair of aligners. After we discuss how to wear and maintain them, we'll answer any questions you have and you'll leave wearing your first set! Then you'll simply wear your trays at least 20-22 hours per day and move to a new pair every 2 weeks until you get your final results.
How Long Does Invisalign Treatment Take?
Invisalign works for a wide variety of bite alignment problems, including crowding, gaps, overbites, underbites, and more. With that said, each patient is unique and their treatment time will vary depending on their needs. However, in addition to being practically impossible for other people to see, Invisalign has the added advantage of being faster than traditional braces (on average). In fact, most people get their results in just 9-18 months, as opposed to 12-24 months for traditional braces.
