The secondary aim was to determine factors which influence overall treatment duration.Subjects and methods: A retrospective cohort study was undertaken within the Orthodontic department at Kings College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

Overall non-extraction treatment was favoured (P = 0.001) with differences in restorations provided post-treatment evident (P = 0.01).
