Successful orthodontics is not something that can simply happen overnight. Often times it can take well over six months for any major progress to be made, although you can often see subtle changes in the first few weeks. The truth is that orthodontic treatments such as braces and Invisalign are long term commitments and investments in yourself, your health, and your future. As with any investment or commitment, orthodontic treatment offers many rewards. In this post, we’re going to talk a little bit about what can make orthodontic treatments so complex, after that, we’ll touch on the different choices you can make for your orthodontic treatments, as well as their benefits.
Waiting For Orthodontic Results
The amount of time it can take to complete successful orthodontic treatment can depend on a number of factors, including the seriousness of your condition, your age, and the orthodontic treatment used. Generally speaking, it takes a little more time for adults to complete treatment than children, and on average you can expect to be wearing braces for 18 to 24 months.So why does the process take so long? Well, the reality of it is that braces are often fixing more problems than we may be able to see. Overbites, underbites, gaps between teeth, open bites, crowded and overlapped teeth are just a few of the conditions your braces may be working to correct. Additionally it is worth keeping in mind that it has taken your teeth several years to end up in their current position, so it only makes sense that it may also take several years to correct them.
