Does Invisalign work permanently?

I want to straighten my teeth with Invisalign. Does Invisalign work permanently?

Invisalign only works "permanently" if you are consistent about wearing nighttime retainers. Without that, the teeth will predictably shift back. Retention for life is the current buzzword.
Yes it does but with any orthodontic treatments, it is important to wear your retainers so teeth won’t shift back to original position. We offer plastic retainers to wear at night time
Invisalign can correct mild to moderate alignment issues. An evaluation is necessary to see if you are a candidate. After treatment, retainers are strongly recommended.
Invisalign is like braces - it's orthodontic movement of the teeth. Just like braces, you need a retainer to keep your teeth from shifting. After completion of the Invisalign treatment, your dentist will recommend getting a removable retainer. Usually it's a Vivera retainer which is 30% stronger and twice as durable as other leading retainers. Your dentist will taper the retainer to keep your teeth from shifting. If you wear your retainer as prescribed by your dentist, your teeth should stay put.
