How long does it take to straighten teeth with dental braces?

Teeth straightening is an orthodontic treatment focusing on gradually shifting teeth into their correct alignment. It is often achieved with dental braces, including traditional metal braces and clear braces such as Invisalign. Braces can correct issues such as overcrowding, gaps and spacing issues as well as bite issues like underbites and overbites.

How do Dental Braces Work?

Whether you choose traditional braces or clear braces, all dental braces work to achieve the same result: to gently and gradually shift your teeth into their correct position and alignment.

With traditional dental braces, metal brackets are bonded to each individual tooth, and then dental wire is threaded through each bracket. This wire is then expertly tightened at regular intervals, to slowly move teeth into their right positions.

With clear or invisible dental braces such as Invisalign, a progression of clear, custom-made aligner trays are worn to shift teeth into alignment. These aligner trays are not bonded to the teeth like traditional dental braces brackets, and can be taken out while eating and brushing.
