“How long should I be wearing braces Tamarac?” This is the most common question patients ask during an orthodontic consultation. The truth is, your orthodontist will not be able to give you an exact date as to when but he or she can probably give you a rough estimate. But then again, there are numerous factors that will affect the duration of your treatment. Just so you know, orthodontic treatment is not the same for everyone because every person’s teeth are different, and their problem areas are never similar.
Children and teenagers are more likely to achieve faster results compared to adults owing to their growing jawbone. Their teeth are much easier to control and manipulate compared to adult teeth. However, this also does not mean that all adults are required to wear braces for a much longer time. It will also depend on other factors.
As mentioned, every case is different and one major factor that will determine the length of treatment is the severity of your dental case. Problems involving mild crowding and spacing can be corrected in less than a year but for severe cases, you can expect it to be much longer.
When you’re on braces, your orthodontist will give you specific instructions that you need to follow for a successful treatment. If you fail to follow the instructions, it will affect treatment time.
The best way to know how long you’ll be wearing braces Tamarac is to work closely with your orthodontist and ask them for an estimate.
