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!


My Dentist said to keep mines for 2 1/2 years. :o)

Invisible braces should be treated like regular braces. You have to keep them in at all times and only take them off for eating and brushing.

You usually get powerchain braces for gaps, and to keep your teeth in they're place. Most people get power chain braces when they're about to get they're braces off. To keep they're teeth the same way the braces left them. Hope I helped!

like braces for your teeth, orthopedic braces are braces meant for your foot or leg and keep your leg straight while it heals/moves.
