How long does It usually take for the teeth to get aligned with braces? I need to have them, but I'm an adult and I don't want to have braces for a long period of time.

Hello, please consult with an orthodontist that can help determine the duration of your treatment. This varies case by case and can take up from 6-24 months. Thank you for your question.
Depends on age, bone structure, gender, physical structure, severity of the case.
Longer for adults than for kids, also depends on the condition

The duration of orthodontal care depends upon the type of movements necessary to align the teeth. If you do not like the idea of wearing braces, consider clear aligners such as Invisalign.
