Being a teenager can be challenging enough without adding the stress of the unknown? Now, teens and parents alike do not have to experience anxiety about orthodontic treatment. Our braces for teens ensure that every teenager can find a solution that they’re comfortable with. Irvin Orthodontics offers teen braces to the families of Greensboro, High Point and Winston-Salem, NC.
What are Braces?
Braces are an orthodontic appliance, which repositions the teeth. Braces can be used to straighten teeth, improve health and overall appearance. Traditional braces involve brackets and metal wires, but now there are more modern options to match your teen’s needs and personality.
Why Do Teenagers Get Braces?
It’s no secret that many teenagers get braces each and every year. Truthfully, it’s an effective and relatively short-term treatment, which benefits someone for their entire life. In fact, it’s estimated that 70 percent of teens get braces during some part of their teenage years, which would be like two out of every three students in math class. That’s a lot of beautiful, healthy smiles!
How Long Do Teens Need to Wear Braces?
The length of time that teens need braces will vary based on each person’s reasons for getting treatment and the amount of correction needed. You can shorten the amount of time you need to wear braces by going to the orthodontist regularly, as recommended, for adjustments.
For most teens, the length of time braces need to be worn ranges from about eight months to two years. Dr. Alan Irvin will discuss your treatment plan with you at your first appointment.

Can’t I Wait Until I’m an Adult?

Life will continue to get busier, and you will continue to flourish as a teen and then adult. It’s time to have a smile that can grow with you, not that you will grow out of.
