As the journey into orthodontic treatment begins, you are sure to have questions. Whether your orthodontist has recommended braces or Invisalign, the main goal is to shift your teeth in such a way that they will be straight. Any issues with your bite will be corrected as well. The process of orthodontic treatment varies for everyone. A typical length of treatment time is two years. However, it could be as little as a year or as much as four years. It will depend on the severity of the orthodontic problem, the age of the patient, and what kind of results are expected. As you prepare for your plan of action to correct any orthodontic problems, one concern may be tooth extraction.
