Popular with patients, Invisalign offers a discreet and comfortable alternative to traditional braces. A frequent question patients have about this process is how long the treatment will take. At Pacific Dental Care, serving both Glendale and Burbank, we provide comprehensive Invisalign services to patients seeking a straighter smile.
The duration of Invisalign treatment varies depending on several factors, including the complexity of your case and your compliance with wearing the aligners. On average, Invisalign treatment can take anywhere from 6 months to 2 years to complete.
During your initial consultation with our experienced team, we will evaluate your teeth and discuss your treatment goals to determine if Invisalign is the right option for you. We will create a customized treatment plan that outlines the duration as well as other features to expect.
With Invisalign, a series of clear aligners are worn that gradually move your teeth into their desired alignment. You will typically wear each set of aligners for about 1 to 2 weeks before advancing to the next set. It’s essential to wear your aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours per day to ensure optimal results.
Throughout your Invisalign treatment, you will have regular check-up appointments with our cosmetic dentist to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan. These appointments are crucial for ensuring that your teeth are moving according to plan and that you are on track to achieve your desired outcome.
While the length of Invisalign treatment may vary, many patients appreciate the shorter duration compared to traditional braces. Additionally, the ability to remove the aligners for eating, drinking, and oral hygiene makes Invisalign a convenient and lifestyle-friendly option.
