Dr. Bhandaru is routinely asked by Invisalign candidates in Carrollton, TX, how long the therapy takes to restore their smiles. She tells them it depends upon the amount of correction that’s initially needed. Invisalign clear plastic aligners are not for everyone, and work best in patients with mild-to-moderate oral malocclusions like teeth overcrowding, excessive gapping, and over and underbites. In more serious cases, Dr. Bhandaru may recommend another form of orthodontia care, including fixed braces and an oral appliance.

Your Invisalign Therapy Snapshot
If you are a candidate for Invisalign therapy, the clear plastic aligners provide many benefits over conventional fixed braces, including comfort, convenience, and ease-of-care. And, of course, the main positive with Invisalign is that the trays are virtually invisible to onlookers! Here’s a snapshot of the average Invisalign course-of-treatment we use in our office:
The trays are meant to be worn 20 to 22 hours per day, even while sleeping. Invisalign should only be removed when you’re eating, or brushing and flossing your teeth. A failure to follow these guidelines can result in having to wear the appliance for several more weeks, or even months, to achieve the beautiful smile you deserve.
Overall Wear Time
On average, our Invisalign patients go through a 6 to 24-month treatment period, which varies depending upon:
Amount of initial correction that’s needed
·Individual patient goals
Every Invisalign patient receives detailed “wear-and-care” instructions from Dr. Bhandaru or one of our hygienists to ensure optimal smile-restoring outcomes when the therapy is through!
