Years with braces
« on: 04. December 2020, 04:17:52 AM »
I have a question for you. What is the longest treatment you have seen or have done? I have seen two long treatments with women, one that takes 6 years and another that takes at least 8 years, but it could be more.

I have a friend who had braces for 7 years, she got them on in primary school and instead of doing two rounds she just kept them on the entire time.

Someone in my class got braces when she was 12 if I remember correctly, but her teeth were crooked for a long time after that, so she only got them off when she was 18.

I spent a total of 11 years, but no consecutively.  3 stints:  5 years (including headgear!) during high school, 2 years in college, and then 4 in my mid 20's.

My wife has had her braces for 7 years now, after a hiatus she tried to resume treatment earlier this year but COVID has delayed it further

I’ve had braces for seven years across two treatments, and I’m currently almost two years into a second treatment

I've had braces for 10 years combining 3 different times. I am going in for my fourth time at the end of Jan.

This is the second time in braces, so this is my second treatment.

I am talking about a single long treatment, there can be several and but there are not many years of difference between one and the other.

In that case, I have a friend and his relative who had theirs for 10 and 17 (!) years respectively; they live in a third world country, and so their treatments were exaggerated by incompetent orthodontists. The younger brother genuinely did what he needed to do, but was stuck in a bad treatment. His are off now. The 17 year treatment is still ongoing, though it is entirely the fault of the relative who simply doesn’t go to appointments.

I'd say my wife will have had her braces for 7.5 years when she finishes treatment, we'll have to wait and see though!
