Most of my friends had braces for around 1-1.5 years but I guess it depends on the person.

I had mine on for 18 months, but it can very a lot for different people. It just depends on the situation of your teeth pre-orthodontic treatment, the aim of the treatment and complexity of treatment.

I was meant to have them for 16 months but Covid-19 has prolonged treatment. I’ll be going into uni with them still on, but they should be coming off soon.

I had mine for 2 and a half years and I had them for the first year of uni. They weren't common at uni but I wasn't the only one who had them.

Almost 2 years, but will be almost 3 before I get them off I think bc Covid has drastically lengthened the process

I first had mine around Yr8 up until Yr10 and during the treatment I had to wear elastics quite a few times lol. Even though it was kind of annoying not to eat hard foods or drink fizzy drinks often, it did kind of pave the way for me to start drinking milkshakes aha. I guess you could say that was one of the positives from it

I had block braces for about 6 months, then braces for about 2 years.

(Didn’t wear the block braces towards the final few months though, but luckily it didn’t really matter).

I got them in the December of Y12, so just over a week before my 17th birthday.

I know it sucks, but I went in to Y12 waiting for my braces too (I got them in the December of Y12). Honestly I’d just try not to worry about it. Once you have braces the time will seem to pass really quickly
