How Do I Know If My Teen Needs Braces?

The teen years—ages 10 to 14—can be the ideal time for braces because the bones and muscles are still growing and are easier to move before they become set. Braces can help your teen if they exhibit any of the following:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Self-consciousness resulting from their smile
  • Difficulty chewing, speaking, or breathing

How Long Will My Teen Wear Braces?

Treatment length depends on many factors, including the type of braces use, condition severity, and treatment compliance.

That said, the average treatment duration ranges from 6-18 months. The best way to get an accurate timeline is to schedule an appointment with Dr. Vinson. He will provide an exam, diagnose the condition, and discuss treatment options.

During the consultation, we will also review your insurance coverage and go over the various payment plans we offer.
