How long does Invisalign take?

Straightening your teeth is good for your self-esteem and promotes better oral health and more productive brushing and flossing. And Invisalign in Clearwater, FL, is an excellent way to achieve these goals.

Invisalign is a series of custom-made, clear aligners worn over the teeth. You wear each aligner according to your dentist’s schedule, usually two weeks, before moving on to the next. As the weeks go by, you’ll notice your teeth lining up into more desirable positions, which is always exciting.

When you finish your aligners, treatment is complete. At this point, your dentist provides a transparent, custom retainer to keep your teeth in their new straight positions.

The timeline for Invisalign varies and depends on your case's complexity. However, your dentist will let you know how long you’ll be in treatment during your initial consultation. Timelines can be several months or as long as two years.

Fortunately, Invisalign is made of clear, smooth plastic for comfort. So, if you need to wear Invisalign for longer than eighteen months, the system is not cumbersome or weighty compared with traditional metal braces. You can also count on a discreet experience and the unique ability to remove your aligners while eating or cleaning your teeth.
