Does Invisalign take as long as regular braces to work?

The answer to this question is complicated because it varies greatly with each patient's unique needs.

For example, if you've had orthodontic treatment in the past but have experienced a slight relapse of your teeth, your case may not take as long to complete as someone who is straightening their teeth for the first time.

Most treatments with clear braces in Fredericksburg, VA tend to take around 12 to 18 months to complete. However, your treatment time may be shorter if your case is less complicated.

The best way to decide if Invisalign is the right treatment for your needs and how long it might take is to schedule a commitment-free evaluation with Dr. Elnahass. During this evaluation, he performs a thorough examination and takes x-rays and photos of your smile. Using this information, he can determine how long your treatment may take and its cost.

Keep in mind that Invisalign in Fredericksburg, VA also requires excellent compliance to be successful. Committing to wearing your aligners for at least 22 hours per day ensures that your treatment stays on track and finishes in a timely manner. Taking your aligners out for extended periods of time could prolong your treatment time.
