What is the duration of orthodontic treatment?

Orthodontic treatment times depend on the complexity of the original problem and can take between one and three years (though a majority of patients now complete treatment in 6 months or less). Actual treatment time is a function of the rate of growth and the severity of the problem that needs correction. Another factor that affects treatment length is patient compliance. When a patient maintains good oral hygiene, follows the orthodontic team’s instructions, is careful not to damage the appliances, and is present for all scheduled appointments, the treatment is more likely to be completed on schedule.
