How Long Does Invisalign Last?

November 17, 2022
Posted By: Dr. Roberto Monteagudo

Treatment with Invisalign in West Allis lasts 6–12 months or longer, depending on the patient. However, it’s important to remember there is no one-size-fits-all treatment plan, but your dentist can discuss your treatment timeline. As long as you adhere to your treatment plan, the results of wearing Invisalign clear aligners can last a lifetime.

Wisconsin Smiles is happy to offer Invisalign as a faster and highly effective alternative to traditional metal braces. If you’re interested in Invisalign, please get in touch with us to schedule a consultation with Dr. Roberto Monteagudo. 

How Does Invisalign Work?

Invisalign is simple, discreet, and comfortable. Invisalign patients wear a series of clear plastic aligner trays that gradually reposition their teeth and align their bite. Patients change out their aligner trays every two weeks until their treatment is complete. Patients should wear clear aligner trays for 20–22 hours each day for optimal results. The less you wear the aligners, the longer your treatment will take!

We ask to see our patients every six weeks to check their Invisalign progress. One of the many benefits of Invisalign is you can remove the trays to eat, brush and floss, and for special occasions. Invisalign is gentle on teeth and made of smooth plastic, so you don’t have to worry about metal brackets or wires irritating your lips, cheeks, or gums. 

What Are the Benefits of Invisalign Clear Aligners?

Invisalign clear aligners are steadily gaining popularity because of their transparent appearance and easy wear. Here are some of our patients’ favorite aspects of Invisalign treatment:

  • Made from clear, BPA-free plastic for discreet wear
  • Suitable for most patients of all ages 
  • Effective for several types of alignment issues
  • Comfortable for all-day wear 
  • Removable for eating food and special events
  • No dietary restrictions 
  • Easier to maintain a healthy, clean mouth
  • Easier brushing and flossing
  • An attractive and easy alternative to metal braces
  • Faster treatment time

Invisalign has transformed millions of people’s smiles around the world. Maybe it can transform your smile too!
