Invisalign in Diamond Bar, CA

Posted on 09/21/2021

Invisalign is just one of the many ways to perfect a crooked smile, but because of its convenience, comfort, and aesthetic appearance, it is the most popular. Furumoto Dentistry is proud to provide Invisalign treatment to patients in Diamond Bar, CA, as a part of our comprehensive general and cosmetic dental practice! We have helped countless patients correct their smile with Invisalign, so if you're wondering how long it takes, or whether it's the right option for you, look no further!

How Fast Can Invisalign Straighten Teeth?

The entire Invisalign treatment generally takes 12 to 18 months, when aligners are worn consistently. Your Invisalign treatment will look something like this: wearing clear plastic aligners every day to gradually shift your teeth into their optimal position, creating a more harmonious and beautiful smile. You will work through a series of customized aligners, with each set bringing you closer to the desired result with gentle pressure.

How to Speed Up Results with Invisalign

Invisalign delivers results fast and is very convenient, but sometimes it can be so convenient that patients get a little lazy, accidentally lose an aligner, or forget to wear them enough. To keep your treatment on the fast track, refer to this checklist:

  • Wear your aligners for at least 22 hours a day, every day.
  • Only remove the aligners to eat, drink, or when playing contact sports.
  • When not wearing them, place the aligners in their protective case.
  • Clean your aligners gently and consistently.
  • Avoid warping, bending, or breaking the aligners.
  • Always go to appointments to check in with your dentist, and make adjustments to treatment when necessary.
