Markham Street Dental

How long do braces stay on?

If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your smile, we offer dental braces in Armidale, NSW. Braces may correct many cosmetic issues, but straight teeth are also easier to care for and can mean fewer cavities.

When your bite is aligned, and your teeth aren’t crooked or overlapping, there are fewer places for bacteria to collect and erode your enamel, which means better oral health now and in the future.

As far as the length of treatment, this varies based on your needs. For mild issues, you may spend only six months to a year in braces. For more severe cases, orthodontic therapy can last for up to two years. Your dentist provides a timeline before treatment, so you know what to expect.

Throughout therapy, you’ll come in every few weeks to have your wires adjusted, and so your Armidale dentist can assess your smile to see if treatment is on track.

At Markham Street Dental, we want to help you reach your smile goals, and orthodontics is a great way to bring your teeth inline and enhance your oral health.

Are You Ready to Start Your Smile Journey?

We encourage you to contact our dental clinic to schedule your initial consultation if you’re considering orthodontics.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
