If you decide to invest in clear aligners like Invisalign® for your smile transformation, you will likely be eager to start seeing your results. Most patients will be able to see noticeable changes in their smile as quickly as six weeks into their treatment. However, exactly how quickly you see your smile begin to change will depend on the current state of your smile and the complexity of your case. Some patients will be able to notice a difference with Invisalign® quickly, even in as little as 2 weeks. Though others with different issues will take more time. No matter how long it takes to see the changes, as long as you're wearing them as instructed, you'll know that your trays are working to move your teeth into the desired position. The aligners are constantly working to achieve the beautiful, straight smile you have been waiting for.
How long do Invisalign® take to complete? That depends on two main factors:
- How well you wear the aligners
- The complexity of your case
Take a Photo Every Two Weeks
Throughout your treatment, you will be given new aligner trays every one to two weeks. This will ensure that your teeth are continually moving into their new position. Therefore, with each new Invisalign® set, your smile will become straighter than it was previously . If you aren’t able to see the transformation in the mirror, try taking photos of your smile before each new set of aligners. When you set these photos side-by-side you should be able to see the changes much more easily.
Another excellent way to monitor progress and stay motivated is remote monitoring systems. Remote monitoring uses computer analysis to assess the fit of your aligners – and determine whether or not your teeth are moving. It can even accelerate your treatment. The app can advise you when it is time to move to the next aligner. This means you can progress through your aligners at your own unique pace. The remote monitoring at Fine Orthodontics helps our patients easily see the changes.
Some Patients Take Longer to Notice a Difference with Invisalign®
If you’re not seeing results no matter how you look at it, don’t worry. Some smiles take more time to show the changes than others. Therefore, taking longer than six weeks for the differences to become noticeable can be completely normal. Some differences are also very discreet in the beginning of Invisalign® treatment. This may be because movements at the back are required first to make space for changes to occur at the front. Be assured that if you are wearing them well and progressing through aligners, Invisalign® is working. When the more significant changes start to take place, you will be able to see your smile transform before your eyes. If you are concerned, you should always talk to your orthodontist to get their professional opinion.
Invisalign® treatment will take approximately 12 months (for an average case), but you should start noticing a difference to your smile in as little as 6 weeks.
