How long does it take for invisible braces to straighten my teeth?

Depending on your teeth, the straightening process with Invisalign invisible braces can take anywhere from six months to 18 months. It may seem like a long time, but patients may enjoy a variety of benefits after finishing treatment, including a smile they’re happier with, an easier and more effective oral hygiene routine, and sometimes even increased function due to a better-aligned bite.

What’s the First Step toward Straighter Teeth?

Dr Ward will thoroughly examine your teeth and overall oral health to ensure that you’re a good candidate before moving forward with clear braces treatment. After your initial exam, he can provide estimates for the length of treatment time and cost of treatment based on your specific dental situation and needs. 

If you decide to follow through with invisible braces treatment, we can then continue the process of creating your custom aligners.

Why Does Orthodontic Treatment Take So Long?

Invisible braces work by slowly shifting the position of your teeth. Unfortunately, it’s not possible to speed treatment time because shifting your teeth is simply a slow process. However, clear braces treatment in  makes the process convenient. They are removable, so there’s no need to change your diet during treatment, and they’re easy to clean and maintain.

They’re also incredibly discreet and nearly invisible, so you don’t have to worry about changing the appearance of your smile for months while you complete treatment.
