Wearing an Invisalign Reston is one of the most convenient ways to get straighter teeth. If you have always felt like your smile could be better, wearing an Invisalign will help you get the results that you need. Of course, the most common question that people ask is how long they should wear it to achieve a perfect smile.

First, we have to make sure that it is understood: everyone will get their results at a different pace. We just have to establish what the factors are that contribute and what the averages are when it comes to the progress in seeing that perfect smile develop from wearing Invisalign.

Always Wear Your Invisalign

You’re always told that you need to wear your Invisalign at all times if you really want to see the results. However, there are also limitations that you have to be reminded of. Never wear your aligners if you’re going to eat. No matter what food it’s going to be, you must eat after removing your aligners.

Brushing and flossing should both be done with your Invisalign removed. It’s actually detrimental to the success of the treatment if you keep on wearing your Invisalign while doing these activities as they can damage the aligner and affect the end result for your teeth.

12 Months Should Do it

The Invisalign treatment usually takes about 10 to 12 months. Certain conditions such as the misalignment of your teeth or how long you leave the Invisalign Reston in during the day will affect the progress. The average for the end goal is always 12 months, but you should always give some leeway for a realistic goal.

During the 12 months, you will have to replace your aligner tray at least every two weeks. This is important because you have to maintain the quality that you are getting from your aligners. There are certain factors that will be affected if you do not do this every 2 weeks which can affect how your overall treatment looks after 12 months.

Invisalign Trays Need to Stabilize Your Teeth

The reason why it’s optimal to wear your Invisalign for as long as you possibly can is because you will need to align all the misaligned teeth idly. The longer the Invisalign Reston stays inside, the longer it has to work effectively.

Make sure that you keep a protective case with you so there’s always a place to put your aligners if you do have to take them out to participate in sports, eating, brushing, and flossing. Keeping track of when you put them in and how long they go in for will help you find the right balance between the breaks that you need to go with.

Consider the Misalignment of Your Teeth

Everyone that uses Invisalign did so because they understand that their misaligned teeth could use some realignment. This is different for every person. A minor misalignment will indeed take a shorter period of time to realign. It’s important to set a realistic timeline when looking at how long to wear the Invisalign in a day.
