About Braces

How long will treatment last?

The length of time will depend on your age, the severity of the malocclusion, and co-operation, but normally between 18 months and two years.

Adults may take longer, because the bone and tissues are denser in older patients. There is therefore a slightly longer response time to tooth movement.

New techniques and materials used by orthodontists today have decreased the discomfort as well as frequency of visits and the overall treatment time.
