    All depends on you and what the orthodontist thinks. 

    I had mine for 3 years and during high school to boot.

    I had mine for 18 months (they said it would take about 24 months but my teeth moved quicker than they assumed they would). So no, 17mo is not long.

    For the most part.

    But, Unless you are having trouble eating Braces are a waste of money, Even if you are Vain.

    You endure the pain for YEARS, and IF and when removed the teeth will start reverting to their previous normal natural positions.

    Save your money and pain:

    If you are vain, start to learn how to smile while not showing ivory.
