How Long Does a Person Wear Braces


On average, it takes from 18 months to 2 years to complete orthodontic treatment. There are patients that require less than 12 months, and patients that require more than 24 months, but the duration of treatment will depend on the severity of each case, patient’s age, and patient compliance.

To obtain excellent results, you must follow Dr. Morine’s instructions, that way your treatment will progress smoothly on schedule. The most important things to remember about compliance are:

  • Be thorough and consistent with oral hygiene
  • Always come to the appointments with Dr. Morine and follow every direction.
  • Don’t delay making an appointment to repair breakages as this could allow teeth to go back to their original position.
