  • The braces treatment normally takes around 18-24 months but the time period can increase or somewhat decrease depending on the case. After the removal of braces you have to wear retainers. During braces treatement you should maintain very good oral hyg as chances of food impaction are more due to brackets glued to the teeth and wires. You should brush atleast 2-3 times a day with Orthodontic brush along with flossing and mouthwash.
