How long do I have to wear braces?

The treatment time necessary for braces depends on the severity of your bite problem. Typically, full orthodontic treatment takes between 18-24 months for most patients, but this can vary depending on many factors. You can do many simple things to keep your treatment on time, such as making sure you come to all of your appointments, avoid breaking your braces, and wearing your elastics as directed.

There are also individual biological factors that influence treatment time, which means that some people’s teeth move faster than others.
