As a general guideline, fixed appliance therapy (braces) typically requires 18-24 months of treatment. A complex case requiring extensive tooth movement including extractions, missing or impacted teeth can take up to 24-30 months.
Clear aligner therapy (Invisalign) can range anywhere from 6-30 months and depends on the complexity of treatment, which will be discussed at your initial consultation.
