How long does Invisalign take?

Invisalign treatment is customized for each patient’s unique needs, but the average treatment time is 12-18 months. It’s difficult to be specific because everyone who visits our Jonesboro dentist for Invisalign treatment has different tooth alignment issues.

What Affects Invisalign Treatment Times?

Some people need to correct dental bite issues, while others are more interested in an aesthetic solution that straightens only the teeth that show when they smile.

Another variable is compliance; wearing your aligners for 20–22 hours a day as recommended by your Invisalign dentist means finishing treatment faster than leaving them out for long periods.

Invisalign Treatment Is Convenient and Comfortable

Even if your treatment takes a year or longer, Invisalign makes the process comfortable, convenient, and discreet.

  • For adults, one of the most significant benefits of Invisalign is that the crystal-clear aligners won’t detract from their smiles. Your treatment can remain your secret because most people won’t notice your aligners.
  • You can also remove your aligners for oral hygiene and meals, so there are none of the food restrictions you would have with metal braces.
  • With Invisalign, you’ll also stay motivated because you’ll see your teeth getting a little straighter every time you switch out your aligners.
