Treatment Time

Fortunately, advancements in the field have led to shorter and less frequent appointments than previously necessary. At Orthodontic Centers of New Mexico, we analyze each case carefully before establishing a personalized treatment plan that balances effectiveness and efficiency.

For young children requiring interceptive orthodontics, early intervention often results in quicker correction and prevention of developing issues down the road.

Teens and adults pursuing comprehensive treatment typically wear braces or Invisalign clear aligners for around 18 to 36 months, though this will vary depending on your individual case. Appointments are typically scheduled 4 to 12 weeks apart. Your cooperation in keeping scheduled orthodontic appointments, maintaining proper hygiene, and taking care of your braces may allow you to finish your orthodontic treatment early.

Regardless of the approach, regular follow-ups and active participation in maintenance protocols enable optimal progress and minimize treatment length. Rest assured that we collaborate closely with each patient to optimize their unique journey toward lasting confidence and oral well-being. Start exploring the possibilities now by scheduling a no-cost examination!


We encourage patients to ask questions about their orthodontic treatment. At a patient’s first visit, we will inform patients and/or parents about important treatment details.
