Are you wondering exactly how long you’ll be wearing braces? The amount of time it takes to treat your smile depends on three important factors:

  1. Early treatment:
    This allows orthodontists to monitor the growth of the jaw and recommend further orthodontic treatment, if it becomes necessary. Not everybody receives early orthodontic treatment, and in some cases it may be recommended that a patient wait until they are older to receive treatment. But it is always a great step to visit the orthodontist around age 7 to ensure that treatment begins as early as possible.
  2. What needs correction:
    The amount of treatment needed to correct a 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. 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. YOU!
    Your willingness to use the appliances your orthodontist gives you plays a major role in the length of time it will take to complete your treatment. Always remember to take care of your braces and appliances… this truly will help make your treatment shorter and give you that dazzling smile you’re ready to show off!
