Everyone has a different treatment plan based on numerous factors. The average time spent wearing braces ranges between 18 to 24 months.
Certain clients may benefit from commencing treatment prior to having all the adult teeth in. The complete treatment time may be longer in these circumstances but often the interceptive treatment phase can eliminate or reduce the time spent wearing braces. One of our orthodontists will be happy to assess your unique situation and recommend options.
The more severe and numerous the orthodontic issues that need to be fixed, the longer treatment time can be expected. How fast your body responds to and recovers from the ortho will also determine treatment time. Everyone’s body responds in their own time. One client may only take 12 months, while a similar case may take 2 years or longer.
One of the most vital treatment factors is how closely one follows the orthodontist’s instructions. Wearing elastics properly and maintaining checkups as required will definitely help you shorten your treatment time.
