Treatment Duration

The duration of treatment depends on various factors, including the age of treatment, the extent of correction required, and your personal commitment to maintaining your braces and appliances. Early treatment allows for monitoring of jaw growth and further recommendations if necessary. However, not all patients require early treatment, and some may be advised to wait until they are older.

Types of Treatments Available

We offer a range of braces, including ceramic, invisible, lingual, and traditional metal braces. Our team will work with you to determine the best option for your unique needs and preferences.

How long do I have to wear braces as a teen?

The duration of treatment varies from patient to patient and depends on three key factors:

1. Early Treatment

Getting early orthodontic treatment allows orthodontists to monitor the growth of your jaw and recommend further orthodontic treatment if it becomes necessary. However, not everyone receives early orthodontic treatment, and in some cases, it may be recommended that a patient wait until they are older to receive treatment.

2. What needs correction

The amount of treatment required to correct the problem will determine how long the process takes. Different patients react to treatments differently, so while it may take one patient only 12 months to complete their treatment, it may take another patient 24 months (about 2 years). Treatment times can vary depending on how quickly your body responds and how much work is needed to give you the show-stopping smile you expect.

3. Your cooperation

Your willingness to use the appliances your orthodontist gives you plays a significant role in the duration of treatment. Always remember to take care of your braces and appliances; this will help make your treatment shorter.
