Orthodontics, the shorter the time, the better?



 How long will it take to correct my teeth? This is a concern for every patient before receiving orthodontics. Is it true that the short time is better? The doctor's answer was: NO! NO! NO!



1. Is it better to correct the teeth as short as possible?


The amount of tooth movement is limited, generally 1.5 millimeters per month. Too fast movement will cause teeth to loosen. Generally, the treatment duration varies according to the severity of each individual's tooth irregularity. In the deciduous period (3-5 years old), children usually have a few months of correction to achieve better results. Adults are generally around 1.5-2.5 years, and the course of treatment for some very severe cases in clinic is 3-7 years, which is normal.


Usually, after the orthodontic treatment, the patient needs to wear a retainer for a certain period of time. In the process of orthodontics, if you want to shorten the time and do not follow the scientific rules, apply too much corrective force. As a result, the patient's pain is heavier and the teeth are loose. Therefore, orthodontics cannot pursue one-sidedly as quickly as possible.


2. Orthodontics is simple. Is it cheaper?


Orthodontics can't just be cheap. First of all, an orthodontist must be qualified to be competent. Orthodontics is a complex treatment process. From the examination and diagnosis of patients, to the formulation of a scientific orthodontic plan, to the entire orthodontic process, each step is very critical, testing the doctor's technical and clinical experience. In addition, it is very important whether the hospital's equipment disinfection is clear and safe. In this regard, it is best to choose a regular, large-scale oral medical institution for orthodontic treatment.
