How Long Do Braces Last Greenville, SC

How Long Do Braces Last?

During their first consultation, patients -especially adults, are always eager to know how long they how-long-do-braces-last-greenville-scwill have to wear braces. Generally, the use of braces.

You might be wondering about the reason for disparity. Well, there are cases when braces need to stay on for a long time and in some instances, the duration is usually about three years based on the desired dental correction.

However, there are certain factors that influence how long braces will last. They are:

  1. Nature of Dental Issue

More than anything, the nature of dental issue influences how long braces will last. It rarely takes less than a year to fix mild dental issues, let alone more extensive cases.

  1. Nature of Treatment

The nature of orthodontic treatment needed by a patient will determine how long braces will last. Since dental issues are personal, the kind of treatment required vary from person to person. This variation also influences length of treatment and use of braces.

  1. Age

Age is not just a number when it comes to orthodontic treatment. Teens are more likely to wear braces for a shorter period because their jaws are still forming which makes dental correction easier and faster. Adults, on the other hand, tend to wear braces for longer periods because their jaws have already developed.

  1. Compliance with Instructions

If patients don’t adhere to the instructions provided by the orthodontist, it can significantly impact the treatment result and how successful it is.Some examples of this are having good oral hygiene, consistently showing up for dental appointments, and following any instructions associated with orthodontic appliances

In fact, non-compliance is the most common reasons that patients are in braces for longer periods of time.
