How Orthodontic Treatment Works

Orthodontic appliances are made from various materials, including metal, ceramic, and plastic. Some can be taken out for an hour or so a day, while others are cemented to the teeth. All place force on the teeth in order to facilitate movement and get the teeth and other facial features into proper alignment.

How Long Orthodontic Treatment Takes

Treatment time is different for every patient. Some need as little as six months, while others may spend more than three years in treatment. Factors that influence treatment time include age, treatment method, the severity of the orthodontic abnormality, and how well the patient follows the directions of the doctor.

Before treatment begins, we will go over all your options and determine just how long treatment should take. Contact us today to schedule your initial consultation.
