The system uses thermoplastic material to gradually straighten your teeth.To keep the straightening process going, your aligners need to be worn for 20 to 22 hours a day. You can remove them for eating or brushing your teeth, but if taken out too much, treatment won’t be as effective.The total treatment time averages from nine to 15 months but can take as little as three months depending on the type of Invisalign aligners you have.
