What is the success rate of Invisalign braces?

Gregory J. Jorgensen, DMD
Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics
The success rate of Invisalign is determined by the diagnosis and treatment plan of the orthodontist, the cooperation of the patient, and the biological response of the patient's mouth. If the orthodontist is experienced and carefully selects his cases (knowing the limitations of aligner therapy) the success rate can be extremely high. The majority of cases where Invisalign treatment is not successful are due to patients not wearing their aligners as prescribed.
