Most of our patients have treatments that take an average of 1.5 years and have started recently for the eruption of all permanent teeth. However, in some cases, treatments can start as of the age of 6 years of age teeth. In such cases where the growth development period should be followed, long-term orthodontic treatment processes can be followed by including follow-up periods rather than active treatment.
In many patients, orthodontic treatments are carried out in order to achieve the best aesthetics before a very short (1-3 months) and aesthetic-prosthetic treatments. Apart from that, routine orthodontic treatments take up to 1.5 years.
In adults, the support of surgical branches may be needed in solving the problems related to the jaw bones (for example, the lower jaw being very prominent). However, in these cases, the treatment can be completed in 1.5 – 2 years. In the orthodontic treatment process, the wrong position in the jawbone is corrected with an operation performed under general anesthesia by a maxillofacial surgeon at a stage deemed appropriate by your orthodontist. Patients need a rest period of about 1 week after jaw surgery.
The orthodontist will explain the treatment options to you with their advantages and disadvantages and guide you in line with their knowledge and experience. The treatment plan chosen in line with the wishes and expectations of the patient and the professional advice of the doctor will be implemented.
