How long does Invisalign take?

It's exciting how modern dentistry can improve the lives of our Royal Oak patients in ways that afford them comfort, style, and speedy treatment times.

Clear plastic aligners are a popular choice for those seeking to renew and upgrade their smiles without the use of metal braces. 

If you are considering Invisalign, you might be curious about how long it might take to straighten your teeth.

How Long Will Invisalign Take to Straighten Your Teeth?

The truth is, many variables need to be taken into account to get an accurate figure. Some patients have minor smile flaws that only need a few months of treatment, while others may need 18 months of correction.

Dr. Suchi Chalasani will consider how crooked and misaligned your teeth are. If your teeth are mildly crowded, treatment could take as little as six months. Moderate crowding could take up to 12 months. The more misaligned your teeth are, the longer the treatment time can be. 

Very severe cases may need metal braces to correct.

We will also look at any spaces between your teeth, which can be corrected through Invisalign. As with overcrowding, the more complex the case, the longer it may take to treat.
