Every one to two weeks, you will switch to a new aligner and gradually move your teeth. It takes about one year to straighten the teeth for most patients. The aligners are custom fitted to make the adjustments needed to correct the alignment of your teeth. The number of aligners needed varies, depending on the specific needs of the individual patient.
Invisalign aligners are invisible, so most people will never notice that you are wearing them. An added benefit is that the aligners are comfortable to wear, compared to traditional braces and easy to remove for eating, brushing and flossing your teeth. Invisalign is effective for treating most alignment problems, such as spaces, crowding, overbites, and underbites.
