How Long Does Invisalign Take To Straighten Teeth?
Posted on 08/16/2018

We all want a healthy and happy smile, but at McClain Orthodontics we know that not everyone is comfortable with having metal in their mouths for an extended period of time. Thankfully, we are proud to offer Invisalign as a method of teeth adjustment to our patients. Invisalign uses BPA-free clear plastic aligners and is one of the most popular alternatives to braces. Your Paris, TN is ready to discuss your options for smile correction whenever you’re ready to schedule an appointment.


Adjustment Process


With Invisalign, our orthodontist’s office will start you off with a consultation. Dr. Michael P. McClain will determine if you’re a fitting candidate and answer any additional questions you may have about Invisalign. After creating a 3D image of your teeth with x-rays and an impression, we will develop a specific treatment plan for your individual case. This means the length of the process will vary person to person, but the average is 9 to 15 months total. As a treatment plan, you will have new aligners to rotate every two weeks or so with follow-up appointments every 8 to 10 weeks. This means, no adjustment appointments and fewer appointments overall than braces.


Invisalign Perks


Invisalign has continuously grown in popularity among our patients in Paris, TN for a variety of reasons. Besides the differences in appointments, many people prefer the facts that your aligners are:

  • Almost invisible

  • Less likely to irritate the inside of your mouth

  • Not going to limit the foods you can eat

  • Easy to remove for cleaning

Whether you’re feeling self-conscious about braces or simply excited about an alternative, our office is happy to offer you the best options available.
