The duration of orthodontic treatment using clear aligners or ceramic and metal braces may vary depending on the severity of the patient’s orthodontic issues, their age, and the type of treatment required.

Using clear aligners to fix the teeth usually takes between 6 to 18 months, but this can change depending on complexity of the case. If a patient’s orthodontic problems are more serious or if they don’t wear their aligners as instructed, their treatment may take longer.

Ceramic and metal braces take 18–36 months to work compared to clear aligners. Braces shift teeth gradually using wires and brackets, which takes longer than clear aligners. However, case uniqueness may affect braces treatment length.

Compared to traditional braces, clear aligners often require less time for treatment, though this can vary depending on the patient’s individual orthodontic requirements. Various factors such as patient compliance, age, and the complexity of the case can affect treatment period for both clear aligners and braces.

In conclusion, ceramic braces or transparent aligners, although widely preferred due to their ease of use, aesthetic looks and lesser treatment period. It is advised to consult an orthodontist for the optimal treatment strategy,.
