Braces For Teens Services FAQ

The duration of orthodontic treatment can vary, but for most teenagers, it typically spans 18 to 24 months. The length of treatment depends on the severity of orthodontic issues and the chosen treatment method.

Orthodontic treatment, including the placement of braces, may cause some initial discomfort. However, this discomfort usually subsides within a few days as your teen’s mouth adjusts to the braces. Over-the-counter pain relievers can help manage any temporary discomfort.

While your teen can continue to enjoy many of their favorite foods, there are some dietary adjustments to consider. Hard, sticky, or crunchy foods should be avoided to prevent damage to the braces. We provide guidance on a braces-friendly diet to ensure your teen’s treatment progresses smoothly.

In most cases, yes. Orthodontic treatment is most effective when braces are worn as instructed. While there may be some allowances for certain activities, such as eating and cleaning, your teenager should wear their braces consistently to achieve the desired results.

It’s not uncommon for a bracket or wire to become loose or detached. In such cases, we recommend contacting our office immediately for guidance. We’ll assess the situation and provide instructions on how to address the issue until you can visit our clinic.
