Questions for Your Pittsburgh Dentist: How Long Does Invisalign® Treatment Take?

Invisalign® treatment uses clear aligner trays to gently push your teeth into their ideal position. Depending on your level of malocclusion, this process can take several months.

Typically, Invisalign® treatment can be completed in 12 to 18 months. However, it is impossible to determine how long your treatment will take without first meeting with you and developing a treatment plan.

Your Invisalign® Treatment

During your Invisalign® planning phase, Pittsburgh dentist Dr. Joseph Quartuccio will use proprietary software to map your entire treatment. The information gathered during this visit is sent to Invisalign® where your customized aligner trays will be created.

Each aligner tray will move your teeth closer to their ideal position, but your commitment to wearing them is essential for Invisalign® to work. When worn as directed, you will be able to switch aligner trays at regular intervals, helping shorten the duration of your treatment.

Invisalign® is a wonderful way to achieve a straight smile, often in a fraction of the time required by traditional braces. During your Invisalign® consultation with our Pittsburg dentist we can assess your level of malocclusion and discuss in more detail how long your treatment may take.
