How Long Does Orthodontic Treatment Take?

If you’re looking for high-quality orthodontic treatment in Reno, NV, you’re in the right place at D’Ascoli Orthodontics! For those with a misaligned bite, orthodontic treatment is essential to having a healthy smile. But how long does treatment take? Our orthodontist explains more below.

How Long Does Treatment Take?

Most people wear braces for one to two years, depending on the severity of your misalignment. After your braces are removed, you will be fitted with a retainer to ensure your smile stays in alignment. The length of treatment depends on your age, the scope of treatment, and the desired method (traditional braces or Invisalign®, for example). Commitment to treatment and aftercare is critical, so your teeth don’t revert to their prior positions.

When Should Treatment Start?

It is ideal to begin orthodontic treatment earlier rather than later. If your child is approaching the age of seven, you should schedule their initial appointment. Braces work best (and fastest) in early-to-mid childhood, while the face and mouth are still developing. The roof of the mouth hasn’t fused yet, and it is easier and less painful to move the teeth to their desired position. Straightening your smile is an essential part of oral health at any age, however, and there are several effective options for adults.

What Treatments Are Available?

There are a few different types of braces treatments available, including traditional metal braces, braces behind your teeth, and Invisalign. Traditional metal braces are a reliable way to get the smile you want and are cost-effective, but braces behind your teeth and Invisalign are more discreet options. Talk to our orthodontist today to discuss our options for your or your child’s orthodontic treatment.
