However, Invisalign treatment can also include some types of attachments, such as buttons or elastics. This allows the trays to put proper pressure on your teeth and adjust your alignment which can also correct a crossbite and other mild cases of misalignment.
Thanks to these attachments, Invisalign treatment is available for a lot more patients.
The treatment timeline very much depends on the severity of your malocclusion as well as other dental health issues you may have.
Invisalign requires multiple custom-made trays that slowly improve the position of your teeth. You can expect to wear the trays for about a week on average, though it does depend on how well your teeth respond to the treatment.

Invisalign offers a variety of compelling benefits:
If you have a crossbite and are wondering if Invisalign is right for you, all you need is an appointment with Dr. Pegah Naji to find out.
