How Long do Braces Take?

The current average time for braces is 20-24 months of treatment. And surprisingly, the length of treatment is actually increasing. Recent studies in the U.S. report that average treatment times there are now as high as 24-27 months with an average of 22 appointments during that time span. 

Nearly 2 years and 20+ appointments – wow! If that seems disappointing and way too long to you, we agree.

Multiple recent studies have also shown that patients are likely to begin losing motivation in their treatment shortly after the 12-month mark of treatment. 

So with current treatment times as they are, the deck is being stacked against you right from the beginning at many orthodontists.

There’s got to be a better way, and fortunately, there is.

How Long Does Invisalign Take at Other Practices?

Here’s the surprising part. At most places, the average time for Invisalign is essentially the same as braces. Basically, you’re looking at 20-24 months average treatment time regardless of whether you go with braces or Invisalign. 

So what gives? We promised a better way, but now we’re telling you Invisalign is no different? 

It’s true, at most orthodontic practices you go to, Invisalign treatment time is about the same on average as braces – but at Dr. Peter Brawn, it is much, much faster.

How Long Does Invisalign Take at Dr. Peter Brawn?

Here is where we deliver on our promise – there is a better way.

When patients at Dr. Peter Brawn ask us how long Invisalign takes, we can confidently tell them that most of our patients finish their Invisalign treatment in about 9 months. 

Every case is unique and the time for you may vary some, but it’s true, most of our patients finish treatment in less than 1 year.

How can this be? It’s not magic, although many of our patients feel like it is!

Everything we use during your treatment is clinically-proven, tested, and verifiably safe. 

We simply make the most of the technology that’s available today and have worked hard to develop processes that consistently deliver our patients great results that you don’t have to wait around for.

If there were a secret to your great results so fast, it would be the gentle light therapy device provided to you as a part of your treatment. In just 10 minutes of use per day, it will speed up the movement of your teeth and reduce your discomfort at the same time. 

It’s literally more progress with less discomfort – proven. 

Also, thanks to remote monitoring technology like Dental Monitoring, you’ll enjoy far fewer appointments at Dr. Peter Brawn than you would be forced to sit through most anywhere else. 

Thanks to the remote monitoring and your accelerated Invisalign treatment, you’ll go from appointments as often as every 4 weeks at other doctors to appointments only every few months (or even less) at Dr. Peter Brawn.
