Once Dr. Chung determines that you are a good candidate for Invisalign®, a mold will be taken of your teeth, along with X-rays and pictures. Your custom-made Invisalign® trays are created to be worn for at least 20 hours per day. Most people take them out only to eat, brush their teeth, and floss. The trays gradually shift your teeth closer to the correct position, and after 7-14 days, you will receive new trays that will help your teeth continue to progress. Most adult patients can achieve their final results after approximately one year depending on the degree of correction needed. Invisalign® for adolescents may take one to two years to arrive at their straighter smile. After treatment is complete, you will be advised to wear a retainer to maintain your results.
