It is what the orthodontist think is best to improve your appearance and health. It also depends on what type of treatment you are looking for for example, the longest but more effective treatment, or the quicker treatment. It also depends on the condition of your teeth. The average brace wear can be from 2-5 years. I only have to wear mine for only 18 months though. =)

^^ That's right but mostly you just get them depending on how messed up your teeth are but mostly its about 2-4 years!

How do retainers work?

When you have braces for a certain amount of time you are required to wear a clear or wire retainer. They keep your teeth from moving. So say you got your braces off and you refuse to wear a retainer or you just don't want to, your teeth will move and then you have to get braces again. Your retainer doesn't have to be in very long.


Do you have to have braces or can you just have a retainer?

Braces are designed to move your teeth into better alignment. A retainer is designed to keep your teeth in their current position following braces. If your teeth are where you want them to be, you do not need braces or a retainer. If they are not, you will need to have them moved with braces followed by a retainer to hold them in place.
