The amount of time spent in braces will vary, depending on the individual patient, because every smile responds differently to a treatment.
Treatment times can take anywhere from six to 30 months, but most standard treatments last about 18 months.
Braces do not often hurt, though you may feel a small amount of discomfort for a couple days as your teeth, gums, cheeks, and mouth get used to your new braces.
To help your teeth stay in their new position, you’ll need to wear a retainer. That’s a plastic plate with a wire that goes across the top or bottom teeth.
At first, you’ll wear a retainer around the clock, taking it out every time you eat. After a while, you’ll only need to wear it at night while you sleep.
