Well, by now I suspect you know the answer to your question=) But for others who are curious, it can take as little as a few weeks for a gap to close, depending on how wide it is.

Forget, closing a gap using braces! I closed my gap for only $16.95 using teeth effect bands from www.teethgap.com. I saved so much money.

It takes about an hour to apply braces.

you can not get your braces off faster because you need braces if your teeth are not allinged well. that means that you are going to need braces for as long as your teeth need them. that is usually for quite a while.

it takes about 45 minutes to an hour for braces

Usually its about 2 year but it depends on what you need done for your teeth. It can be less or even more.

They don't. The braces aren't meant to show that much in pictures, just close ups you can see he is wearing braces.

It depends on what you have done. Spacers and bite-plates are uncomfortable and take about a week or two to get used to. The actual braces aren't so bad, and you should usually be used to them within four or five days. When you get them off it usually takes some getting used to, too.

To be honest, that would be a question that you ask your Orthodontist. Check out this website to find out more about braces: http://www.bracesinfo.com/ And don't worry, I have had braces for 5 years. It doesn't hurt when they are put on OR when taken off. :)

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.

it really depends on how crooked your teeth are, if they are pretty good, you may only have them for a short while. It is usually two years though.

It really depends on how bad your deep bite is. Obviously, the deeper it is (the bigger overbite you have), the longer it'll take to fix. You'd need to contact an orthodontist to know for sure, but usually you'd need braces for about 1 to 3 years.

I think it took about an hour or two for me. After years of retainers.

It depends, really, on how crooked your teeth are. My braces, for example, will be on for about 4 years because my teeth are so crooked. Your braces could be on for a few months, or a few years.

User Avatar

well they have to take that part of the braces off then they fill it and put it back on

User Avatar

well, it should only take two years. but, it does depend on if you get a retainer. if you do get a retainer that will be two more years. but just the braces are two year

User Avatar

You can get them on any time after you get teeth pulled, many people get teeth pulled while they already have braces.

User Avatar

The only way to know when you get your braces off is when your ortodontist tells you. And that all depends on how long your treatment is gunna take dependeing on how bad of shape your teeth were in before getting braces

User Avatar

Personally my braces took about an hour, hour and half to be put on. The process is actually a bit painful and it really depends on the patient as well as the doctor to how much time it will take.

User Avatar

It depends what typ of braces you have. Plates and removable appliances usually just clip on to the teeth, while fixed braces are cemeted to the teeth or the roof of the mouth wherever the appliance is meant to go. With removable appliances you usually just clip them in and out with your tongue or if it's been recently adjusted with your fingers and fixed braces whatever they are the orthodentist will take them out when you got to the appointement to have them removed. Head gear usually goes in the metal caps on the back of your teeth. All my friends have them no matter what braces they have or have had. sources: I have had a plate removable appliances, and now have fixed braces ( traintracks) and also have headgear. Hope this helps. Sekhmet
