Will it take a long time to straighten my teeth?Having a perfect smile is usually the desire of every person. It allows you to enjoy being around people, where you can talk, laugh, and communicate without feeling self-conscious about the state of your teeth. crooked or misaligned teeth is a common dental issue that affects many people. At our practice, we have come across people that are burdened by the state of their teeth. We have helped many patients to straighten their teeth, and in the process, improve their smiles considerably.

The Time It Takes Depends On Type of Treatment Chosen

The first factor that will determine the length it will take to straighten your teeth is the choice of treatment option. At our practice, we use Invisalign treatment and braces to straighten your teeth. Invisalign is a modern technique that uses clear and transparent aligner trays that you wear to straighten your teeth. They are an effective option, and it can take anywhere from six months to two years to straighten your teeth.

The traditional metal braces are still being used to correct crooked teeth. though not preferred because they are not transparent, they can still deliver a good job. However, it can take anywhere from one year to several years to straighten your teeth.

State of Your Teeth is Still A Factor

It will take a short period to straighten minor crooked teeth as compared to severely misaligned teeth. Regardless of the treatment option, it is likely that you will experience a longer waiting time if you have severely crooked teeth.
