Duration of Treatment, Braces & Aligners

Duration of Treatment

The length of treatment depends on the severity of your malocclusion and may vary from case to case. Typically, braces are worn from 10 to 18 months.

The treatment times with clear aligners vary and can range from 12 to 24 months depending on the specific alignment problem; treatment for moderate cases may require as many as 32 steps while minor cases may require as minimal as 12 steps.

The cost of invisible braces is usually higher than traditional orthodontic treatment. Your specific braces cost is determined by factors that include the type and duration of treatment, any other restorative work needed before or throughout treatment.
