How long will orthodontic treatment take?

There is no general answer to this question.

The extent of the tooth movement required and the speed with which the patient’s tissue responds differ from patient to patient and therefore affect the length of treatment. In most cases, the length of treatment depends on the level of patient compliance. Depending on how severe the degree of misalignment is, treatment generally takes between one and three years.
