How long does it take to straighten teeth with Invisalign?

- April 05, 2019

Invisalign is growing in popularity as an orthodontic treatment because people like that the aligners are clear and nearly invisible, and they can take them out to eat.

One of first questions people ask our Orthodontists about Invisalign is:

“How long will it take to straighten my teeth with Invisalign?”

The simple answer is: “It depends.” For simple cases, treatment time with Invisalign aligners can be as short as six months. Typically, Invisalign will take 12 months to 18 months to straighten your teeth.

For more complex cases such as crowded teeth, the treatment time could be 20 months or slightly longer.

No two people have the same treatment requirements because everyone’s teeth are slightly different which impacts treatment time.
