If you’re considering Invisalign in Durham from Smile First Dentist, you may be wondering how long it will take to correct your smile. In this blog, we’ll discuss how long treatment takes, the most important thing you can do to speed up your Invisalign treatment, and how to care for your teeth and your aligners during your treatment.
Every Patient Is Different, But Most Treatments Take About A Year
After you’ve been approved for Invisalign, Dr. Jenny Citineni can give you an estimate for how long your treatment will take. On average, most patients will need treatment for about 12 months.
However, if you have minor problems with your teeth alignment, your treatment could be as short as 6 months. If you have more complex orthodontic issues, your treatment could take 18 months or longer. It all depends on your unique situation.
