This depends primarily on two things:
1) How difficult your dental condition is.
2) How cooperative you are with rubber bands, brushing your teeth, etc. Compliance with instructions is key!
Those who cooperate with treatment instructions frequently get braces removed in 12–18 months. However, those who miss appointments, fail to cooperate with wearing rubber bands (whose role is to fix the bite), don’t maintain good oral hygiene, etc. may have treatment that takes 24 months. And sometimes longer.
