How long will my orthodontic treatment take?
It’s difficult to say how long your treatment will take because everyone starts out with different needs. But the average orthodontic treatment time for traditional braces is about 24 to 30 months. If you have mild tooth misalignment, we may be able to complete treatment in less time using clear aligners or partial braces depending on your budget.
Some of the factors affecting your treatment time are age, the severity of the orthodontic problem, treatment goals, and compliance. Dr. Martinez will recommend the treatment option that will best help you achieve your goals for a straighter smile. But if you want to see the best results in the shortest time possible, you must be committed to keeping scheduled appointments and following proper oral hygiene at home.
If you would like to get a better idea of how long your treatment will take, please call us to arrange a free consultation with Miami orthodontist Dr. Jesus Martinez. He will listen to your concerns and identify any factors that might impact the length of your treatment. If he finds you or your child would benefit from braces, we will discuss your treatment options and the average time each one would take.
