The length of treatment depends on the severity of your case. However, the average case takes about 11-12 months. Here’s a look at the process:
Dr. Michael I. Wollock will meet with you and tell you about the process. The average Invisalign case is around 11 months, but if yours takes a little longer, you won’t be charged more.
Three Weeks Later
You will meet with Dr. Wollock again to see a computerized animation of the projected Invisalign treatment. At this stage, you’ll learn how many Invisalign trays you will need, which will also tell you how long your treatment will be.
Once you choose to start treatment, your trays will be ready in three weeks. From that point on, you will wear your trays 22 out of 24 hours a day. Please note that if you do not wear them this often, your Invisalign treatment will not be effective. If for some reason, you do not follow this, we will restart the treatment for free for one time only.Throughout your treatment, you will meet with Dr. Wollock every 2 weeks. If your treatment goes as planned and you wear your trays, then your visits will be every 6 to 8 weeks.
After the Trays
At the end of your treatment, you will be provided with upper and lower retainers. You will wear the retainers in the beginning for 22 out of 24 hours a day, for about 3 weeks to 3 months until your bone adjusts. Then you will wear the retainers every night.
