How long is an Invisalign® treatment?

The Invisalign® treatment

The Invisalign® treatment is an orthodontic treatment that allows the alignment of teeth effectively and painlessly. Thanks to the use of transparent aligners, you will be able to obtain the smile you have always dreamed of, without the use of metal braces.

Invisalign® uses a patented thermoplastic material and 3D imaging to create an aligner specially adapted to your teeth and your unique needs. A specialist will develop a treatment plan in order to help you achieve optimal results.


Duration of the Invisalign® treatment

There are several treatment options available to meet your specific needs. Invisalign® features a series of aligners, each designed to move your teeth gradually to the final position. The number of aligners varies according to the treatment plan chosen and the complexity of the teeth malpositions.

Generally, the duration of an Invisalign® treatment lasts between 12 and 24 months, similar to traditional braces. Some cases may take more or less time and sometimes certain teeth require the addition of other aligners to refine their final position. All details will be determined during a consultation with an Invisalign® specialist.
