The duration of orthodontic treatment depends on the age of the patient, the extent of the procedure and how closely the patient abides by the treatment plan. Young patients may respond more quickly to treatment compared to older patients. This is due to the fact that the bones holding young teeth are relatively more pliant than those supporting older teeth. Adults patients, on the other hand, tend to follow treatment instructions more consistently than pre-teens.

Typically, orthodontists require patients to wear braces, or orthodontics,to correct tooth and jaw alignment.

Aside from improving the function of teeth and jaws, orthodontics can have a huge impact on improving the patient's appearance. Ordinarily, the orthodontist requires a patient to wear braces for about two years, after which a retainer is fitted to prevent the teeth from reverting to their original position.
