Avondale Dental Centre

How long does orthodontic treatment last?

Many area patients consider orthodontics in West Auckland. Straight teeth not only enhance the appearance of your smile but also contributes to easier brushing and flossing. Additionally, an aligned bite may reduce your risks for cavities and tooth wear. 

We think orthodontics is an excellent option for those looking to enhance their smiles and their oral health.

Orthodontics such as Invisalign in Avondale and traditional braces help correct the following:

  • Protruding teeth
  • Twisted teeth
  • Overlapping teeth
  • Uneven spacing
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Underbite
  • Overbite
  • Crossbite
  • Overcrowding
  • Malocclusion (bite issues)
  • Jaw function
  • Crooked teeth

Length of treatment can last months or up to two years, depending on the severity of your orthodontic issues. Your dentist will discuss treatment length with you and all orthodontic options during your initial consultation, which includes an assessment, x-rays, and a chat about your smile goals.

Pretreatments, such as extraction for overcrowding, may also contribute to total treatment time before braces or Invisalign.

Following your orthodontic treatment, your dentist provides a custom retainer to prevent orthodontic relapse. This is a clear aligner that reminds your teeth to remain in their new straight positions.
