After a couple of weeks, you'll have started your Invisalign treatment and you'll begin to notice your teeth shifting slightly. Invisalign treatment uses the natural processes that are already occurring in the mouth to move the teeth backwards and place them in a better position, making them appear less crowded and congested. You will usually be given a set of Invisalign aligners every two weeks until your personalized treatment is finished. For some patients, Invisalign can make a difference in as little as two weeks.
However, those with more complex cases may take longer. No matter how long it takes to see the changes, remember that the trays are working to move the teeth into the desired position. Aligners always work to give you the straight, attractive smile you've always wanted. With Invisalign, each dental movement is planned out.
Small adjustments are made and then larger ones. There is no need to move your teeth straight, as the transparent trays can work on individual teeth. Each of the aligners will move your teeth upward. If you want your teeth to move faster, you may want to use an application for iOS and Android that scans your teeth and allows you to move to the next aligner if your teeth have already moved.
These Invisalign clear aligners are designed to use the right amount of force to straighten your teeth. Since the goal of both conventional orthodontic appliances and Invisalign aligners is to place the teeth in the correct position over time, it is not intended to be an overnight solution. The general treatment with Invisalign can take about twelve months on average for all the teeth to be in the correct position. During your Invisalign treatment, your dentist will provide you with new aligning trays every one to two weeks to ensure that your teeth are continuously moving into the correct position.
To speed up this process, people who want their teeth to move faster with Invisalign can wear their aligners 22 hours a day, as recommended. On average, it takes 6 to 12 months for teeth to move into the correct position with Invisalign. To check if your Invisalign aligners are working, you can try taking pictures of your teeth before you receive your new set of trays. For optimal results, Invisalign gradually aligns the teeth, which minimizes discomfort and ensures a precise and healthy smile.
It's also reasonable to call Invisalign aligners braces, since they move your teeth in the same way that traditional orthodontic appliances do. Generally speaking, it can take several weeks before people notice significant changes in their smiles with Invisalign; that's why people often need to wear their Invisalign aligners for at least two weeks before they can start seeing results.
