15 Apr Why does it sometimes take longer than the estimated time for orthodontic treatment?
We can only provide you with an estimated time frame of how long you will be in braces. Each patient grows differently and responds to treatment differently so variables are endless when trying to determine an exact time frame. With that in mind, the purpose of orthodontic treatment is to achieve the desired result from treatment for you. Until that result has been achieved, we will continue with treatment as long as necessary. Generally, patients who cooperate by wearing their appliances and rubber bands as instructed by their orthodontist tend to complete treatment on time and have achieved amazing results.
