How long will it take before braces can be removed?

The time it will take for braces to achieve the desired results will depend on a number of factors, including the child’s age, the type of braces used and the complexity of his/her dental problem. It will also depend on how closely the child follows the treatment plan, whether he is faithful to the scheduled number of visits or follows instructions on proper tooth care.

After the braces have been removed, another mold is made of the teeth. This will be used to create the retainer (a removable implement that keeps teeth from shifting to their previous positions) that the child has to use until teeth positions have stabilized.
