A regular Invisalign® treatment, requires between 12 and 30 set of transparent aligners, each of them to be worn for the period of 2 weeks, which means the treatment time span varies from 6 to 15 months.
During this time, you only need to visit the dentist every 2 to 3 months instead of every 3 to 4 weeks as required when wearing regular metal braces.
An Invisalign® i7 treatment could last around 4 months if your teeth are mildly crooked.
To maximise the effectiveness of the treatment you should wear the aligners for at least 20 hrs a day; You only need to take them off when eating.
Can I speed up my Invisalign® treatment? Yes, there is a new appliance called AcceleDent® that can reduce the time of your treatment almost in half. For more information, ask your dentist during any of your visits.
