How long does it take to straighten my teeth?

Posted on 6/5/2023 by Dr. Cheryl Freeman
How long does it take to straighten my teeth?Achieving a perfect smile requires that you have straight or perfectly aligned teeth. When you have misaligned or crooked teeth, you will be unable to smile in public to conceal the state of your teeth. This can have a mental impact on you causing you distress. To correct this issue, you need medical attention from dental experts. At our clinic, we pride ourselves on providing effective and comprehensive treatment to our patients. The time it takes to straighten your teeth depends on several factors and varies for different patients.

The type of treatment matters

The amount of time it takes will depend on the type of treatment chosen. For instance, modern Invisalign treatments can take six months to straighten your teeth. This is considerably less time compared to other treatments. Traditional braces for instance can take anywhere between six months to two years for positive results.

Age is also a factor

Adults can take relatively longer to straighten their teeth, this is because when you are an adult, your jawbone is almost fully developed, while your teeth will be firmer in their position. This is in contrast to young people whose teeth and jaws are still developing making it easier to alter the alignment of their teeth.

Severity of the misalignment

If you have badly crooked teeth, it will take relatively longer to align them perfectly. You, therefore, have to seek immediate treatment to start the process of aligning your teeth.
