The treatment period varies depending on the symptoms and the treatment contents, but in general, it is around 2 years on average for adults, and about 3 years at most if tooth movement is necessary.
In the case of pediatric correction (orthodontic treatment to prepare a child's jaw), it takes about 1 to 2 years, and if you arrange the permanent tooth alignment after that, it will be necessary for another two years or so.
Life, support, after-care during treatment
What will happen to brush and meal when orthodontic treatment begins? I guess I'm worried. On the "Life, Meals, Toothbrushing" page, it describes what is different from everyday life and that it becomes a guide for life during correction.
Also, at our hospital, we are doing corrective support in a fully-organized system so that patients can be treated with peace of mind.
And after careful beautiful tooth alignment, we care about after-care carefully so that the alignment of the teeth does not get disturbed and it will last steadily.
Support and troubleshooting during correction
Our clinic has established a system to handle sudden troubles, dealing with unexpected situations, and prevention beforehand. All of our staff spare no effort in order to make the patient comfortably complete the orthodontic treatment and obtain good treatment results.
Aftercare (Retention · recall)
Although it took corrective treatment over a long period of time, cost, and effort, the tooth alignment may not be stabilized and it may be disturbed again. As it is not such a thing, by regularly checking "Is there any problem with the alignment of teeth and engagement stability?" "Tooth decay, periodontal disease, temporomandibular disorder, etc." Early detection and early treatment before bigger becomes possible becomes possible.
