What is the Process of Invisalign?

Invisalign is an alternative to metal braces. Invisalign and braces are both ways to properly align the teeth. The difference is that Invisalign uses clear trays to align the teeth correctly while metal braces pull the teeth into the desired position over time. Invisalign requires virtually no maintenance and is practically unnoticeable on the teeth. To progress through the Invisalign process you will need to wear Invisalign for 20 to 22 hours a day and change to a new set of aligners every few weeks. The Invisalign process will gradually shift your teeth into the correct position over time. 

How Long Does Invisalign Take to Work?

The process of Invisalign can take around a year to a year and a half to achieve the full potential and results. If patients don’t follow the process correctly, it could take longer. By not wearing Invisalign for even a day during the process, your teeth could start moving back to their old position and backtrack on the progress that you have made. Patients will notice gradual improvements along the way if they are following the routine correctly.
