Have you found yourself hiding your smile due to crooked or overlapped teeth?

Invisalign offers an innovative solution for busy adults to straighten their teeth without enduring the hassle of wearing braces. Using clear, BPA-free plastic aligners, invisible braces with Invisalign move teeth with efficiency and discretion - two things adult patients appreciate.

How Long Does Invisalign Take?

Length of treatment varies for each patient based on their specific needs. For example, someone straightening their teeth for the first time may have a more extended treatment duration than someone who is just moving a few teeth that have relapsed after previous orthodontic treatment. However, the typical range for invisible braces in Melbourne, FL is 12 to 18 months.

Our dentists can determine how long your treatment might take during an Invisalign evaluation. At this appointment, our team gathers information through x-rays, photographs of your teeth, and a thorough examination from our dentist. Then our dentists use this information to determine if Invisalign is right for you and create your treatment plan. They can also give you an estimate of how long your treatment might take at this time.

Compliance Is the Key to Faster Treatment

Invisalign works best if patients wear their aligners for at least 22 hours each day. Then they can typically move to new aligners every two to three weeks.

You can do your part in moving your treatment along by being compliant about wearing your aligners as much as possible and keeping your teeth clean and healthy with daily brushing and flossing. This is easy to do since you can remove your aligners for meals and home care.
