When using Invisalign to straighten your teeth, your dentist provides you with custom aligners that you will wear for at least 22 hours every day. You will be able to remove your aligner for oral hygiene purposes or when eating and drinking. Otherwise, your aligners should stay in place.
The fact that your aligner can be removed is a big benefit for most patients! That means you don’t have to alter your eating habits and it makes oral hygiene easier.
When Will I Have Straight Teeth?
Dr. Preston White or Dr. Shannon White will examine your teeth to design a plan for achieving your straight smile. The average time it takes to complete an Invisalign treatment plan is 12-18 months. However, the amount of time it takes to reach the desired alignment will depend on your specific dental situation and how well you adhere to the plan you developed with your dentist.
The movement of your teeth will be gradual. Your first set of aligners should last for about two weeks, then you will be moved on to a new set of aligners. That process will continue until your teeth are correctly aligned.
