What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Since Invisalign is nearly invisible, you don’t have to feel self-conscious about having metal on your teeth. Many of our patients appreciate that Invisalign braces are clear and discreet. Other benefits of Invisalign include being able to continue eating your favorite foods and maintaining healthy oral hygiene habits. While metal braces are stuck to your teeth, Invisalign braces can be removed.
How long does it take for Invisalign to work?
Each patient is different. While the average Invisalign treatment time is 12 to 18 months, you may need to wearfor longer if your case is complex or you don’t wear your aligners consistently. However, some patients notice their smiles start to straighten just a few weeks into Invisalign treatment.
Do you wear Invisalign all day?
You must wear your Invisalign braces 20 to 22 hours a day. Otherwise, your teeth will not move according to schedule. You should only take out your nearly invisible aligners to brush, floss, drink, and eat. The more consistently you wear your aligners, the sooner you’ll be able to enjoy a beautifully straight smile.
