In brief: Invisalign

Its impossible to give you an idea of length of treatment without an evaluation.
It really depends on how big of a gap you have and whether or not the bite will be affected while closing the gap. The best thing to do is get an orthodontic exam and discuss your options.

In brief: Ask the orthodontist

There is no magic answer to your question as it depends on your case.
We've had patients wearing invisalign for only 3-4 months and others for 2 years. Varience is significant depending on your case. Ask your orthodontist-- they have developed the treatment plan for you.

In brief: 6 months to 1 year

It really depends on how wide the gap is, and if there are other factors in changing your bite ( for example if the gap is closed is that going to open up a gap on teeth further back).
The typical invisalign case takes about 1 year to complete, but the gap may be closed in as little as 6 months.

In brief: Varies

Short answer: varies according to the severity of the problem and how compliant you are at wearing the trays.
Long answer: would be much faster with braces, and braces would provide better root control and better post treatment stability. Invisalign is about 41% effective, braces about 95% effective, in the hands a a skilled full-time orthodontic specialist.

In brief: Depends

Depends on how large the gap is and how many trays you need to get to that point.
You need to talk to your provider.

In brief: Ask your ortho.

Treatment times are completely variable dependent upon your individual needs.
There is no way someone can provide a specific answer without a complete examination of your situation. Contact a licensed orthodontic specialist to get their opinion.

In brief: Less than 1 year

It really depends on the position of the opposing teeth and the size of the gap.
If it is less than 1/4 the width of your central incisor i think that 9 months should do the trick. If it is 1/2 the width more likely 12 months or more. I find that most patient feel that the time went by really quickly.
