You may have heard that Invisalign works faster than traditional braces—and in some cases, it does—the answer is that treatment times vary based on the extent of your tooth misalignment and the problems we need to correct. Everyone’s teeth also move at a different rate, so your treatment is unique to you and will be personalized to fit your needs.
Invisalign Average Treatment Times
What we can tell you is that the average treatment times with Invisalign clear braces at our East Los Angeles dental office is 12 to 18 months. However, treatment can be completed in six months for some people, while others can take as long as 24 months.
Benefits of Choosing Invisalign
While straightening your teeth with clear aligners may not be as speedy as you’d hoped, Invisalign offers lots of benefits compared to traditional bracket and wire braces that make them easy to wear:
- More comfortable: Bracket and wire braces are attached to your teeth and can cause sores and irritation in your mouth. Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners that slip over your teeth and have no rough edges. You may even forget you’re wearing them!
- More discreet: With traditional braces, everyone knows you’re having treatment. With Invisalign, however, the crystal-clear plastic aligners blend into your smile, and most people won’t notice them. You’ll be able to smile confidently throughout your treatment.
- More convenient: You can’t take a break from traditional braces, you may have to limit the foods you can eat, and oral hygiene can also be a challenge. But you can take short breaks with Invisalign clear braces so you can enjoy all your favorite foods and brush and floss your teeth thoroughly.
