Thank you for the query.

You can go for the clip [orthodontic] treatment at this age, but it is difficult to clarify here whether it is possible to complete within one year without knowing the irregularity of the teeth.

If the irregularity is minimal and does not require the removal of teeth, then one can consider completing the active phase of the treatment within one year and followed by that is passive treatment [retainers will be given]. If the irregularity more and necessitates the removal of the teeth then more time is required for achieving the proper result.

The budget may be somewhere between Rs 17,000/ to Rs 30.000/- depending on the type of appliance to be used for aligning the treatment, However the Orthodontist to whom you are consulting will be able to give clear picture.

As far as referrals to a hospital, for this reason is concerned it is better to get the referral from the nearby acquaintances because the orthodontist’s available day and time should be convenient to you also as the treatment demands multiple visits [at least one/month]. Any misssed appointments will unnecessarily prolongs the treatment.

Hope, this answers your query. Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
