Frequently Asked Questions

Q
How Long Does it Take?
ATypically an Invisalign treatment takes less time than traditional braces to straighten your teeth, ranging from 9 to 12 months on average. Some people only need 6 months, while others might require treatment for up to 18 months. Dr. Pickel can provide you with an estimate for your particular situation.

Q
Is it painful?
AEach time you get a new aligner, you will feel a little pressure (this is part of shifting your teeth into their proper positions). It is still much more comfortable than traditional braces. Most patients say they experience very little or no discomfort during the course of treatment.

Q
What happens after treatment is completed?
AYou will likely need to use a retainer to keep your teeth from shifting back into their initial position. Every case is unique, however, so Dr. Pickel will work with you to find the best post-treatment option.
