How Quickly Can Invisalign® Treatment Correct My Smile?
Invisalign® treatment is one of the most popular orthodontic treatment solutions available in the Houston area. Invisalign aligners can help you correct your smile by fixing crooked teeth, gaps in your teeth, crowded teeth, or various bite-related issues. Our dentists at Made Ya Smile Dental West 8 are proud to offer Invisalign treatments for all our patients in Houston, TX.
The timeline for how long it takes for Invisalign to correct your smile will vary surrounding your situation, but most cases can show results in 12 to 18 months. We can prepare an individualized plan for your needs to determine what benefits you can get from the Invisalign process.
How does the Invisalign system work?
We can correct your smile through Invisalign by preparing the necessary aligners that can snugly fit your teeth. We can complete a digital scan of your teeth and prepare a series of aligners to move your teeth in their correct positions. The planned aligners we use will create a predictable approach to orthodontics, as we can create aligners based on what you need to get from your teeth.
The number of aligners you’ll require during the treatment process will vary depending on the length of treatment. You’ll wear each tray for about two weeks on average, for about 20 to 22 hours each day. You can remove your trays for eating and teeth cleaning.
The general timeline
You can expect to spend at least a year straightening and correcting your teeth through the Invisalign system. Our dentists at Made Ya Smile can provide a more accurate timeline based on your needs. Patients with more substantial corrective needs may need to wear their aligners up to 18 months of treatment, but this is still quicker than traditional braces.
You’ll start to notice results in a few weeks after you start the process. The series of aligners are designed to apply gentle pressure on your teeth to move them into the proper spots. As you transition from one series of aligners to the next, you’ll continue to gradually guide your teeth into alignment without the hassle of clunky and irritating hardware.
Your discipline is critical to success
The Invisalign process can do wonders for your smile but not without your help. Our dental team at Made Ya Smile recommends wearing your aligners as recommended, which is at least 20 hours a day, only to remove them for eating or cleaning your teeth. You’ll also need to clean your aligners each day to ensure they stay comfortable and aren’t at risk of damage.
