How long does the Invisalign treatment take?

This popular question is also one of the most difficult to answer! There is no set amount of time to move through the Invisalign treatment, as everyone has a unique smile that will take a personalized amount of time to change. 

Patient holding up tray of Invisalign aligners in Mountainside NJOn average, patients usually spend between one and two years in Invisalign clear braces. However, depending on how complex the case is, a patient can spend less than one full year or even more than two years in treatment. 

When you wear Invisalign trays, you will typically wear each for about 2-3 weeks before moving on to the next set. When you consider how many different variables influence the number of Invisalign trays you might wear, it’s easy to see how the treatment length can vary so significantly. 

We always tell our patients in Union County to expect a minimum of one year in Invisalign to keep their expectations realistic. Many patients average around the 18-month mark with their Invisalign, but that number is only meant to be a general guide.
