Can you get braces off in 6 months?
Overall, orthodontic treatment through braces can take anything from 6 months to 30 months. It is important to note that you should only get your braces off when you and your orthodontist are completely happy with the position of your teeth, as getting them off too early may leave you with undesirable results.
While your specialist orthodontist may fix minor problems, such as mild tooth crowding or spacing issues, within 6-8 months, more complex problems involving the bite may take up to 12-18 months for treatment.
Most Common: 12 to 18 Months
The majority of the patients we treat wear braces between 12 and 18 months. Orthodontic appliances may need to be used to resolve any crowding of the teeth. There may also be slight issues with bite, such as an overbite or posterior cross-bite.
The minimum time to wear braces can be as little as several months to fix a basic crooked tooth or spacing issue through to 36 months for both metal braces and ceramic braces. Ceramic braces use tooth-coloured brackets and arch wires so they are less conspicuous than metal braces.
The shortest amount of time to have your braces is 12-24 months. Braces, on the other hand, take a different amount of time-based on the patient and their dental demands. Because every person's teeth, mouth, and gums are different, the treatment time will vary.
Mild pain or discomfort is a normal side effect of wearing braces. But you should only feel the discomfort immediately after your orthodontist places or adjusts your braces or wires. The discomfort typically disappears within four days, and braces pain rarely lasts longer than a week.
The honest answer is that braces do not hurt at all when they are applied to the teeth, so there is no reason to be anxious about the placement appointment. There will be mild soreness or discomfort after the orthodontic wire is engaged into the newly placed brackets, which may last for a few days to a week.

Well, the answer is no, as one needs to complete the tenure for treatment. Braces by far, the most effective ways to straighten your teeth and give you a beautiful smile.
Braces can be removed early if a patient absolutely insists, but there are many downsides to this decision. For starters, incomplete treatment may leave your overall dental health and tooth alignment worse than it was before you started.
What age are braces too late?
The major advantage of treating irregularities at a young age is that orthodontic appliances are widely accepted in youth and ideal alignment can be achieved before adulthood. Most orthodontists agree, however, that it is never too late to get braces.
While every patient is different, you should generally have your braces adjusted or tightened every 4-10 weeks. Keep in mind, though – your orthodontist will personalise your braces treatment to your individual needs, so there's no exact adjustment time that will suit everyone.
Well, most people who wear braces tend to be between 10 and 14 years old. However, treatment can start from as young as 7 and there's no upper age limit.
With any type of braces you choose (traditional metal braces, clear ceramic braces, or Iconix® white gold braces), you can get braces the same day as your consultation.
Some patients might require slightly longer treatment periods, so the actual range is about four to eight months.
You should expect to notice minor shifts in your teeth approximately 4 weeks from after bonding. Greater shifts that are more visible require more time as they become noticeable after approximately 2-3 months. The short answer to the question of whether braces move your teeth everyday is yes.
Some people can fix one tooth in just a few months, while some cases take years to perfect. A general expectation is six to 18 months for each tooth. However, this time frame varies depending on your dental health and the type of orthodontic treatment you decide to use.
Designed specifically for adults seeking a cosmetic solution for their smile, six month braces are a great solution for crooked teeth or crowding, spacing issues and less complex orthodontic treatments. The system uses clear brackets and tooth coloured wires that are barely visible.
