This dentist was unsure of how long the desired result would take, so orthobrain gave a detailed response, making sure all the possible situations were covered. Once the plan was decided on, treatment began.

Treatment Goals: Straightening mandibular

Question: How long would treatment be?

Treating Dentist

I think it will take more than a year to straighten the lower teeth, a lower canine is severely rotated and will likely take more than one set of aligners if Aligner is used. Even with braces, it will take more than a year to correct the canine. My concern is that the bite may worsen if treating the lower arch alone. I suggest treating both arches if the patient will allow. Straightening the lower anteriors without correcting the canine will likely be less than a year. Thank you
