Whether you’re considering starting Invisalign or you’re part way through your treatment, you might be wondering how quickly teeth move with Invisalign and how quickly you’ll see results.
It is important to remember that everyone is different and the rate which your teeth move depend on many factors including: jaw shape, gum condition and genetic factors, even lifestyle and diet play a part. When your orthodontist says your Invisalign treatment will straighten your teeth in 12 months, this is based on an average.
An average person may notice movement and differences in the appearance of their teeth within 2 months, whereas some people could notice changes within 2 weeks. Others, it may take 3 months – everyone is different.
Invisalign technology is so advanced that the treatment is planned using a 3D model of your mouth. With this model they can create a time-lapse of photos of how your teeth will move. This will help you visualise how your teeth will look over time and when to expect your treatment to be finished aka have your final results.
If you aren’t seeing results in the first few months, don’t worry! Invisalign takes time and is a series of very small movements, some you may not even be able to notice. Often the most crooked teeth are the ones that move last, so you may not notice big changes for a while.
