How long does Invisalign take?

When teeth are not straight, it affects several aspects of your life—some of these you may not even be aware of. Of course, smiling and laughing may feel awkward, but crooked teeth can also contribute to tooth wear and dental health issues like cavities. Overlapping teeth are also harder to brush and floss effectively, which can also mean future decay.

Your dentist in Fayetteville offers Invisalign because it is a discreet system that allows you to straighten your teeth without cumbersome wires.

Typically, you wear your aligner for 22 hours every day, removing them to eat or during your oral care routine. After about two weeks, you move on to the next aligner in the sequence. This allows for gradual straightening.

How Long Does Invisalign Take?

How long you wear your aligners depends on the severity of your misalignment. Other considerations include crooked teeth, overlapping teeth, twisted teeth, gaps between teeth. How complex are these issues?

During your treatment planning, your dentist provides a timeline—typically several months on the low end and up to two years for more significant issues.
