How Long Does Invisalign Take for Crowded Teeth?
While Invisalign treatment tends to be 12 to 18 months we are always asked the question, “how long does Invisalign take to fix crowded teeth?” Dr. Clay Sims treats every single patient like part of his family therefore he creates a customized plan specific to each individual’s teeth. While we often start to see results as soon as six (6) to nine (9) months with Invisalign, there is no reason to rush the perfect smile.
Some people do not have enough room in their jaw for their teeth to fit properly. When this happens, their teeth bunch up, overlap, or twist. In some cases, they get pushed to the front or the back. In addition to the aesthetic concerns that crowded teeth bring, they can make it difficult to maintain good oral hygiene.
Patients who have crowded teeth will likely find it a challenge to brush and floss their teeth thoroughly. When they are unable to care for their teeth because of crowding, they may face plaque, tartar, cavities, and/or tooth decay.
Left untreated, crowded teeth almost always get worse. If you have crowded teeth, know that you can enjoy beautiful results with Invisalign aligners. Invisalign can eliminate this issue and make it easier for you to brush and floss your teeth. Additionally, it can provide you with the confidence you deserve.
It is important to note that in some cases, rubber bands are required with Invisalign to treat teeth crowding. Orthodontic expanders to make your mouth larger may be necessary as well. Dr. Clay Sims is considered an expert in palate expanders and quad helix expanders.
