Full comprehensive orthodontic treatment usually takes 18 to 28 months beginning at approximately 11-13 years of age.

Typical Braces and Appliances Used:

  • Traditional (small metal brackets) braces vs. "invisible" ceramic brackets

  • Invisalign® treatment

  • Herbst appliances or Mara appliances

  • Lingual arches
