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

I am on my 5th time with braces by the time I am done it will be 15.5 years.

How can it be 10 years combining 3 times and now 15.5 years combining 5 times after a mere 2 year time frame ???. I mean yeah, you could have it for another 3.5 years, but what seems unrealistic to me is you get them two years ago and now have them again. At that point, just keep them on the whole time! Also, 15.5 years seems like a really long time, no matter you are.

Seems a bit fishy to me.

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

She eventually got them off after 8 years, 11 months and 3 days. A good innings!

I used some dating app and met Asian girls a few had treatment lasting over 5 years
Treatment in Asia is slower but results is great

I see many Brazilian women on Facebook having braces for 3 years or more.  Some much longer, like
https://dereferer.me/?https://www.facebook.com/adriele.teotonio, have had them over 10 years.

Very interesting subject !

Like many of you, I love when orthodontic treatments last during more than the classical 2 years long.

It's pretty rare when the treatments last longer. Sometimes, it can happen everywhere in the world for 2 and a half or 3 years, especially when there is a surgery.

But I see sometimes ladies that keep their braces during 4, 5 or 6 years, maybe more. It's nearly always Brasilian women.

The ten years and a half mentionned above seem to be a record.

I'm pretty sure that when the treatment last more than 4 years, that's the patient who wants to keep the braces, like this woman. I think in that case, the braces are more viewed as an aesthetic or a fashionable object than a medical device.

It would be interested to check if a treatment can last that kind of duration for real medical purpose.
