How Long Will I Need to Wear Invisalign?

Many men, women and teens long for a straight smile. Aligned teeth can make an impact on our overall appearance and overall confidence, as well. Further, straight teeth often make your healthier with fewer cavities and erosion and offer you a bite that is properly aligned.

Whatever the reason for wishing for straight teeth, Invisalign Clear Aligners are a viable, discreet and effective solution for straightening your smile.

But how long will you need to commit to wearing Invisalign? Learn more below.

How long do you need to wear Invisalign Clear Aligners?

Invisalign is an advanced method for correcting crooked teeth through a series of custom aligners. Invisalign is comfortable and easy to insert and remove. Using its proprietary SmartTrack material technology, Invisalign is highly popular because it is discreet and allows you to remove the aligners while eating, avoiding food limitations and awkwardness in social settings that traditional braces may cause when food gets stuck.

Birmingham Center for Cosmetic Dentistry has helped hundreds of people achieve the straight, healthy, beautiful smile they desire through Invisalign, who previously had crooked or gapped teeth and even teeth that are crowded.

Many mistakenly think that orthodontic treatment must take years from start to finish. But the truth is, in today’s advanced dental world, the timeline is far less — even half the time as years past.

On average, most patients will need to wear the Invisalign Clear Aligners for 12 months. If your mouth only needs minor adjustments, then you may achieve your goal in six months. However, for those with severe cases, Invisalign may be required for two years. Every case is different, and it is important to wear the aligners the vast majority of the day, only removing while eating and then putting them back in.

As always, a consultation with Dr. Milan is your best bet in deciphering if Invisalign is right for you and how long you may be required to wear it.
