Treatment Time

CAN I GET DONE FASTER WITH INVISALIGN?

Many patients ask if they can complete their orthodontic treatment faster with Invisalign vs. than with brackets and wires. And while treatment with Invisalign typically takes between 6-18 months vs. 2+ years with traditional braces, the most important factors to consider is goals of treatment and not necessarily the mode of treatment.

INVISALIGN AND TRADITIONAL BRACES TREAT DIFFERENT ORTHODONTIC PROBLEMS

While there is some overlap between what can be achieved with Invisalign and with traditional braces, it is important to understand that Invisalign tends to be used to treat less complicated cases; and accordingly, the treatment time is naturally shorter. Thus, the treatment time with any orthodontic treatment is more accurately based on the level of treatment needed.
