How Long Does Orthodontic Treatment Take?

After a lot of planning and a few visits, the day has finally come when your smile journey begins. At Taunton Orthodontics, we want to help keep you in the know of what to expect with your treatment, and how we will be helping you along the way. Let’s take a look at the average time it takes to see best results, and why each day counts in giving you the smile of your dreams!

When it comes to braces, treatment time can vary depending on the issues being faced. Orthodontic treatment slowly shifts the teeth by applying individual pressure to each tooth, with treatment times varying anywhere from a few months for quick fixes to several years for more complex cases.  The average treatment time is roughly 18 months. 

Everyone’s favourite clear aligner, “Invisalign” offers an average treatment time of 12-18 months. This is because, unlike braces, Invisalign applies pressure to the teeth as a whole using a series of customized aligners for your top and bottom teeth. If you have any questions regarding your treatment duration, ask one of our team members during your next visit!
