In 3-24 months, Invisalign®’s clear aligners will efficiently and effectively straighten your teeth. Unlike braces, these aligners are clear, removable, comfortable, durable, and barely noticeable.
Not sure if Invisalign® is right for your orthodontic needs? Here are some of our most frequently asked questions.
How Old Do You have to Be to Use Invisalign®?
We treat patients ages 12 and up for Invisalign®.
How Long Does the Invisalign® Treatment Take?
This ultimately depends on the patient. However, typical treatments last between 3 to 24 months. During your first appointment, we’ll be able to give you a better estimate of what your treatment time will be.
Can I Eat With Invisalign® Trays?
No. Patients must commit to wearing aligners 20-22 hours per day. That means you only have a few hours collectively each day to do all the eating and drinking (other than water).
