Minor tooth movement takes months, not years, as the problematic teeth usually do not need to be moved more than a millimeter or
two. In general, it is performed in adult mouths and involves only the front teeth. Correct alignment of the front teeth also prevents
them from overlapping further and insures against future drifting, which can cause all of the teeth to shift.
