How Long Does Orthodontic Treatment Take?

If you’re considering getting braces, you may be wondering how long treatment will take. This varies from one patient to the next, but typically orthodontic treatment lasts between one and three years.

What Factors Contribute to Treatment Time

AlignerProfilesThere are a handful of different factors that contribute to how long your orthodontic treatment will take, and the best way to get a custom timeframe for your unique situation is to come in for a consultation with us. In general, there are a few things that contribute to how long your treatment will take:

  • How severe your misalignment or malocclusion is. If you have severely misaligned teeth or a very bad bite issue, there’s a good chance that your treatment time will be longer than if you only have mild misalignment or a mild bite problem.
  • How well you respond to treatment. Some people respond much more quickly than others, and this all depends on your teeth, how you react to braces, and how cooperative your teeth are when it comes to being realigned.
  • How well you take care of your braces. Good oral hygiene is one aspect, but also avoiding foods that can damage your braces will ensure that your treatment goes as planned and stays on schedule. If you end up breaking brackets or bending wires on a regular basis, this will definitely slow down your orthodontic treatment process.

How Your Orthodontist Determines Treatment Time

During your first appointment, your orthodontist will take x-rays and possibly molds of your teeth. Examining your teeth will help him or her to determine how extensive your treatment needs to be and about how long it will take to straighten your teeth. This information will also allow your orthodontist to create a customized, unique treatment plan tailored to you and your teeth.

Committing to orthodontic treatment means that you will ultimately be rewarded with healthy teeth, proper jaw alignment, and a spectacular smile that lasts a lifetime. This means that your mouth and jaw will function properly, you will look better, and you’ll also experience increased confidence. When you put all of these benefits together, you will find that your overall health is improved because of orthodontic treatment.

The best way to find out how long orthodontic treatment will take for your unique situation is by scheduling your initial consultation with us. Whether you’re seeking orthodontic treatment for yourself or your child, and whether your teeth are in need of extensive or minimal treatment, we’ll be able to determine all of that at your first visit. With the technology available to us today, your options are more numerous than ever before, making orthodontic treatment available to just about anyone who needs it.
