One of the first questions our orthodontist at Orthodontics at Jackson Heights Smiles is asked by patients and their families is “How long will I have to wear braces?” It’s an obvious question, and one we often receive before treatment even starts! And while the time frame is different for every person, we do our best to offer an answer.
The time period for treatment can range between 12 and 36 months on average. Keep in mind that moving your teeth into their optimal position is a process that requires time, and the amount of time depends on a host of factors. Your age, the alignment of your teeth and jaw, and the type of treatment will all have an impact on the duration. At our state-of-the-art office, patients can be sure that our methods are designed to make the process as brief and comfortable as possible.
