Minutes to hours: Depends on what's being done. No two patients have the same appliance requirement. No two orthodontic specialists work exactly alike. Were not clones. You'll have to ask your orthodontist for an answer tailored to your treatment requirements. Don't be concerned about asking...Orthodontists love to talk about braces.
