Invisalign: Q&AAsk a Question

While wires can be more predictable, they aren't always faster. Since all the teeth are connected, wires use leverage from the other teeth to get the job done. Sometimes this leverage affects the leveraged teeth, so THAT needs to be addressed too. Invisalign can work on one tooth at a time (if the case allows). However, this can be slow. Also, if the teeth don't track as planned, a mid-course correction would be needed, so there would be a wait time while the new aligners were made. ...
The treatment time will vary from case to case. From my personal experience, it seems that Invisalign may work a little more quickly than traditional braces.
