How soon one can expect the result of braces? I met one dentist, she said probably 6months would be enough. Is there so?

Its atleast 8-12 months depending upon case. If less movement is required may be 6-8 months. But dont forget the retention/maintainence phase That past for additional 6 months. I believe that is the most important

It completely depends on the severity of the case. If it is a simple space closure without removing any teeth, it might need 6 months as your doctor told. But average orthodontic case treated with removal of teeth might need around 15-18 months.

See u have to understand, time of treatment is directly proportional to the extent of malocclusion . like for closing minor gaps or small midline 6 to9 months is ok but for major problem treatment time is normally between 1.5 to 2 years.

Outcome of braces depends on a lot of factors of which the most important being the condition of the teeth before starting the treatment.  if the movement needed is not much & the age of the patient is young it can be done quicker.  but on an average the time. required is 1-1.5,2 years
