  • Every case is individual and unique. That is is why we offer free consultations. When a patient comes in for a first consultation, we examine their problems. We then explain to the the patient what is wrong, what needs work.
  • Once patients recognize the extent of the problem, it becomes simple for them to understand how we estimate the length of their treatment.
  • Some treatments can be completed in as few as 12 weeks, while others may take two years. In some cases, it may even take longer. The average orthodontic treatment, across the profession in general, is approximately 24 months, even though many cases can be treated in less time.
