Orthodontics for Teens and Tweens

Having braces or invisalign really isn’t as scary as you may think. In fact, braces are more comfortable, come in more colors and are faster than ever before.

How long will I have to wear braces?

This is the first question every patient asks and there are some key factors that determine how long your treatment will last.

  • What needs correction — The amount of treatment time needed to correct a problem determines the length of time the process takes. Every person react to treatments differently, so while it may take one patient only 12 months to complete their treatment, it may take another patient 24 months. Treatment times can vary based on how quickly your body responds and how much work is needed.
  • YOU! — You play one of the most important roles in your treatment. When Dr. Botsford prescribes rubber bands or other appliances it’s up to you to make sure you use them. You’re treatment will be significantly shorter if you follow all of Dr. Botsford’s rules.
