How long will my orthodontic treatment take?
It’s difficult to pinpoint a standard length of treatment because the orthodontic needs of each patient are completely unique. Generally speaking, treatment times are determined by age, the complexity of the initial problem or malocclusion, and the goals of the treatment.
The average orthodontic treatment time for traditional braces is about 24 to 30 months. However, depending on your case, it may be possible to treat simpler orthodontic issues in approximately a year using updated orthodontics like Invisalign aligners or Incognito lingual braces.
When we meet for your initial consultation appointment, we’ll explain the process to you in detail. But we won’t really be able to give you an estimated length of treatment until we perform a complete orthodontic evaluation. Only then can we determine which type of orthodontics are most suitable and the approximate time of treatment. Please keep in mind that many factors come into play during your treatment, and one of the most important is your commitment to the entire process. You have to be willing to keep up with appointments as well as your oral health care if you want to achieve the best results in the shortest time possible.
We’d love to talk to you about our different orthodontic treatment options and which would be best to help you achieve your dream smile. Please call Dr. Maria Yazji Orthodontics, and we’ll be happy to set up a consultation.
