There has been much debate on duration of orthodontic treatment. Recent clinical trials have attempted to reduce the same. The purpose of this study was to compare the treatment duration of class I, class II, and class III malocclusions. Thirty patients were selected and divided into 3 groups of 10 each according to the malocclusion present, and the treatment time was determined and compared. The mean treatment duration for orthodontic therapy is 19.7 months with least time taken for class III malocclusions followed by class I and maximum time taken for class II malocclusion.
