How Long Do I Have to Wear My Invisalign Trays for Complete Results?
Do you find yourself thinking about the perfect smile you wish you had? We all want beautifully straight teeth to have a smile we will want to show our family and friends. But, having to wear cumbersome and uncomfortable braces can damper that dream. What you may not know is that braces are no longer the only option available. Invisalign, as offered by Dr. Palka Sawhney Sharma at Lake Chaparral Dental Care in Calgary, Alberta, also serving Walden and Legacy areas, is a more convenient and comfortable treatment option for aligning and straightening your teeth – no braces required! But how long does the Invisalign treatment take? Read on to find out.
How To Attain An Amazing Smile
The Invisalign treatment system uses clear trays crafted specifically for each patient to shift teeth into their correct position without the need for uncomfortable metal braces. The trays are crafted from comfortable plastic, making Invisalign an easy and convenient method for achieving straight teeth.
Many adults will complete their Invisalign treatment within 12 to 18 months, with noticeable results starting to show within weeks after beginning your treatment. These results depend on you wearing your aligners for the recommended 20 to 22 hours daily so that you stay on schedule as you move through your series of aligners. Failing to wear your aligners as prescribed can result in slower results or even regression.
As you move from one set of aligners to another, your teeth will continue to shift into their proper position for correct alignment. Because your aligner is crafted from a thin, nearly invisible plastic, Invisalign is not only more comfortable than braces, but they are also incredibly discreet.
