how long does treatment take?

This often depends on the age, complexity of the case and the cooperation of the patient. Most people need to wear their brace for eighteen months to two years. You will generally have your brace adjusted every four to six weeks.

Orthodontic treatment is a team effort. Good compliance with professional advice such as keeping teeth clean, not breaking the braces and adhering to appointments will help to reduce overall treatment time. It must be borne in mind that the most sophisticated treatment plan or appliance therapy will fail to produce a satisfactory result if you do not adhere to the professional advice of your Orthodontist.

Whilst Orthodontic treatment requires a level of commitment, this conservative and reliable approach used to provide straight teeth is definitely worth the investment. You will be rewarded with a confident lasting beautiful smile.
