Are extremely crooked teeth the mAin reason people have braces for longer than 4 years?

I don't remember any patient having braces for longer that 4 years, and I've worked in several offices for over 30 years.
Even patients who have extremely crowded teeth or those who needed jaw surgery are usually finished in 3 years or less.Source(s): Orthodontic assistant with over 34 years of experience.

Typically they break brackets a lot or miss appointments or are always having their wires removed for cavities or gingivitis. It’s not typically teeth being that crooked.
