As Invisalign® providers in Toronto and Danforth, we have seen first-hand how impressively fast Invisalign® treatment can create a straighter, more attractive smile. And how it can help boost your confidence and quality of life!

When comes to the length of time you will need to wear your Invisalign® in Toronto and Danforth, it depends on the complexity of your case and the treatment plan created for you by your dentist. 

What is Invisalign®?

Invisalign® clear aligners are an innovation in dental technology that can be a great alternative to traditional metal braces. They are made out of powerful medical-grade plastics. 

Custom-designed for your dentition, the Invisalign® aligners we develop in Toronto and Danforth exert pressure onto your teeth to gradually shift them into a more optimal position over time.

This process can correct your bite misalignment, crowding or gapped teeth and can prevent the development of serious dental health conditions, like temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ).

The 22 hour rule

As a general rule of thumb, wearing your Invisalign® clear aligners for 22 hours per day is recommended for the fastest and most effective results.

Of course, there will be periods of time throughout the day you will need to remove your Invisalign®, like when you're eating and brushing and flossing your teeth.

This may also apply if you play sports and wear a custom-made sports guard on the field or the court!

Taking this into consideration, Invisalign® treatment plans often instruct not to remove your clear aligners for more than 2 hours a day. 

Not following your treatment plan created by your dental clinic in Toronto and Danforth can stunt your progress, delaying your journey to a straighter, more attractive and functional smile.

Every Invisalign® treatment is unique

As mentioned, when it comes to the length of your treatment as a whole, this will be determined by your specific case. Most often, the more complex your case is, the more time it will take to ensure your teeth are positioned in their ideal place inside your mouth. 

At our dental practice, we'll carefully build your treatment plan to be as efficient and effective as possible — so you can feel your best and rock your new smile sooner!
