The Invisalign system is pretty straightforward. You will wear each aligner for about two weeks, and should only be removed to eat, drink, brush, or floss. Your teeth will move gradually until they reach their ideal positions as the aligners are replaced with the next one in the series.
We will check to make sure treatment is progressing as planned during your visits to Scott Edwards, DDS. Not changing aligners as scheduled or skipping your appointments can quickly undo any progress that’s been made. You need to change the aligners on time and wear them as directed. This is the most important element to success with your Memphis Invisalign. Your trays will be custom designed to fit your unique dental needs. They will need to be changed frequently in order to keep up with the shifting of the teeth as they begin to straighten.
The average treatment time tends to be somewhere between 6 and 18 months, this can vary widely from case to case. Treatment time depends significantly on patient compliance. It’s important to remember that every patient will respond to orthodontic treatment differently. Invisalign works in a slightly different and less invasive way than braces to straighten the teeth. This means it can be hard to say with certainty how long a patient will need to wear them before seeing results.
The treatment time estimate is based on patients following the recommended guidelines. Any small deviation from this can add extra time to the overall process. Invisalign can only work if patients stick to the program. This means wearing aligners for at least 20-22 hours every single day, throughout the course of treatment.
