Orthodontic Treatment Time

The time is determined by age, the severity of your case and how closely treatment plan is followed outside of the office. The reason age is a variable is because the teeth seen in younger patients are easier to move than the older patients, which is why younger patients often respond more quickly to treatment than patients of an older age. Adult patients, however, usually follow treatment instructions more consistently than pre-teens. Oral surgery and recovery may be required in more complicated cases in which a longer period of treatment time is required. These factors will be determined and explained to you by name ( Dentist) whether necessary before or during your orthodontic treatment.
