How Fast Do Teeth Move Back After Invisalign?

Do you have teeth that are misaligned or crooked? If so, you can have a dental procedure to correct it that is non-invasive. Choose Invisalign in Farmingdale, NY to fix your smile. Dr. Eric Chimon at LI Dental Solutions has many years of experience in perfecting smiles with this procedure.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign is a remarkable product to straighten crooked teeth and move them to give you a perfect smile without the need for braces that can be seen. It consists of practically invisible trays that are called aligners which are each worn for about two weeks at a time. Then you use another aligner to move your teeth into position gradually and without any pain at all. For most adults, it takes only a year to correct your smile, but it can take longer for teenagers.

What is the Invisalign Process?

Your dentist in Farmingdale, NY will examine your teeth and likely do x-rays first. The aligners will move a few teeth at a time in small steps with the bi-weekly aligners that you use to correct your smile. A 3-D computer generates your liners to be used in a specific order. You may need as few as 12 or as many as 48 depending on how many teeth you are moving and how much they need to move to correct your pearly whites.

Why Do Teeth Move Back to the Original Position After Invisalign?

Depending on your treatment plan and how drastic your smile transformation was, it will determine how long you need to wear a retainer after your Invisalign treatment is completed. The retainer is stronger than your normal aligners and its purpose is to keep your teeth in the correct position. You may need to wear your retainer day and night for a short period of time and then only at night time to retain your gorgeous smile. If you don't wear your retainer as instructed, you might notice your teeth shifting back into their previous positions before your Invisalign treatment within a month. Following all of your dentist's instructions can help you to keep your perfect smile intact permanently.
