Do not expect immediate results

Even when braces are not a life-long treatment, they surely are a medium-term commitment. This may seem as a bad marketing decision to tell you that changes are not immediate and that you need to be responsible while being under this type of proceedings, however, we need to make sure that our potential clients, and even future competence clients are totally aware of the nature of getting involved in this kind of orthodontics treatment.

So, how much time until I start to see visible changes?

Once that you have started your treatment, you will see noticeable results as soon as between three or four weeks, and 7 weeks to 2 months. This may not seem as a lot of time, and to be honest, it is not. However, some orthodontics clinics promise immediate results, but every single type of treatment will start to show results under this specified time frame.

The time it takes is the needed time to get you under a safe, and yet practical treatment so everything finishes up in the conveyed time frame while following strict medical guidelines. If the movement is slow it can result in the shortening of your denture’s roots, too quick and it can result in uncomfortable, unbearable pain, and bone and dental damage. That is why this procedure must be carried by trained and certified dental health professionals.
