One concern in the mind of any patient is the length of treatment. We must warn you, every patient’s journey is unique. Some patients require more time to fix their smiles, and others even have very complex conditions we cannot resolve with Invisalign.
We will always lay out all options available to you so you make the best decision you can.
But when you come to your initial evaluation, we will review your history, determine if you are eligible for treatment, and give you an estimate for the length of your treatment.
Some patients completed their orthodontic treatment in 6 months, but many factors can change that outcome. Consider that, according to the official Invisalign FAQ, all patients have to wear their aligners anywhere between 20 and 22 hours a day.
Failing to comply with this and other directions from your orthodontist or skipping control visits to the orthodontist’s office will only prolong the treatment.
