12-18 months quoted by the dentist. Seems really short for some reason compared to other people on here, especially as some have less movement then me! But it's Damon, and they are supposed to be quicker :S
Just as long as they are good for the wedding in 2019!

My estimate was 24 months, but I'm hoping I might be able to shave off a month or two!

Estimated was 18 months, but I had them taken off for 3 weeks at the 6 month mark for my wedding in Mexico. My orthodontist estimated and extra 3 months tacked on for the 3 weeks out of braces.
Damon Metal. 18 months.
Fixing: Overbite, overjet, crowding.

Sentence was 18-24 months.
I am currently on month 14.
Fingers crossed that I only have 4 more months to go instead of 10+.
