How long will I have to wear braces? How often will I need to see my orthodontist?
Because everyone’s smile is different, it’s hard to say how long the duration of your treatment will be without consulting an orthodontist. It could be between one to two years or even more depending on how complex the case is. However, for adults that are seeking to correct a minor misalignment, duration of treatment could be a year or less. While wearing braces, you’ll visit your orthodontist every four to six weeks. How often you visit will be determined by your orthodontist. During these appointments, your doctor will replace the wire, and adjust to tighten to ensure your teeth are moving toward their final position in the appropriate time.
