Why is Invisalign Faster Than Braces?

24 Mar 2021 by  admin in Invisalign

If you are considering Invisalign to straighten your teeth and enhance your smile, then you might be wondering– how soon you can expect to see results? While Invisalign is often a faster option than braces, the answer isn’t as straightforward as you might assume. While Invisalign may be the most efficient method for many individuals, the difference may be less clear for others. Here are some of the factors that may influence how quickly Invisalign will work for you.

Every Patient’s Cosmetic Needs Are Different

While your teeth might not look different from another person’s– the reality is that every individual has a unique set of teeth and gums. This means that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to cosmetic dental issues. Thus, some people will require more extensive treatment than others, and therefore their treatment process will be longer, even if they opt for Invisalign rather than traditional braces.

Invisalign Aligners Move Teeth Faster Than Traditional Braces

Most people who use traditional braces need to wear them for up to two years. However, Invisalign treatment tends to take from 12 to 18 months. In some cases, it may even be as short as 6 to 8 months. Compared to braces, Invisalign aligners exert greater pressure on teeth and move them into place faster.

Invisalign Can Be the Most Efficient Treatment Method for Minor Corrections

One of Invisalign’s advantages is that it can easily be used to treat minor imperfections, such as teeth that are too crowded together. Especially if you are treating 10 or fewer teeth, it tends to be a more convenient and less invasive option than braces– many people prefer it. However, finding the best treatment for you depends on your specific issues. If you’re curious about Invisalign, the best way to begin is by scheduling a consultation with an Invisalign dentist in Huntington, Long Island.
