How Long Do Braces Take to Correct Tooth Abnormalities
Posted on 2/20/2023 by Dr. VanBrunt
Braces offer a solution to all people who have teeth misalignment. If your bite is not normal, you may turn to braces to correct it. Over time, braces have become very popular. Chances are that you will come across a person wearing braces each day you step out. This just goes to show how much people appreciate their benefits.
With that in mind, braces are not a quick fix for teeth misalignment. On the contrary, they require long periods of time to actually deliver the right results. The time taken for the results to show up depends on the extent of the biTe anomaly and other factors such as age.
When Do Braces Results Start Showing
If you are wearing braces, you should not be in a hurry to see the results. Changes happen gradually over time. Do not wear braces today and start observing for changes in the mirror. You will not see any significant difference in the first few days. However, you should expect to see some changes in a few weeks. Ideally, you should start witnessing changes within five to six weeks of wearing braces.
Time it Takes for Full Brace Correction
The time to fully correct your bite with braces also varies. It depends on the extent of an anomaly to be corrected. Further, it also depends on other factors such as the consistency of wearing our braces and the age of the person. Treatment usually takes between six weeks and 30 months. Those who are trying to correct an inner misalignment can get the process completed within six months. Therefore, you should not be in a hurry to get rid of their braces. Check to see that your bite has been corrected before removing our bras.
It is important to note that, you will only be able to tell the full extent of the correction made to your bite once you remove your braces. While you may be able to see the changes as they happen, it is until you remove the braces that you can see it all well.
