Braces are the traditional treatment for addressing the position of the teeth. At Smile Studios Orthodontics, we offer a range of braces treatments to patients in Atlanta, Marietta, and the neighboring areas of Georgia. These treatments are available at our locations in Fairburn, Powder Springs, and Lovejoy.
What Are Braces?
Braces, or traditional braces, are the most common treatment method for addressing misalignment in the jaw and teeth. During the braces treatment, an individual bracket is placed on each tooth. Then, a wire is attached to these brackets, which pulls them into place. Additional appliances may also be used throughout the braces treatment. Over time, the braces shift the teeth into the correct position to produce a straight, healthy smile.
How Much Do Braces Cost?
On average, the cost of braces will be no more than $135 per month. However, the cost of braces will vary by patient, and can be made more affordable with the help of dental insurance or dental financing. To learn more about the cost of your braces, please visit our page on the cost of braces.
What Can I Expect from My Braces Treatment?
Before your braces treatment, Dr. Venn will take some x-rays as well as an impression of the teeth in order to plan your treatment. Then, he will provide you with written instructions for your braces treatment. During your first appointment, spacers may also be placed in the teeth to prepare them for braces. At a later date, you will return to the office to receive your braces. At this point, Dr. Venn will again supply you with written instructions on how to care for your braces.

How Often Will I Have Appointments for My Braces?
Braces have to be adjusted on a regular basis to ensure that they continue moving the teeth to the correct position. This also gives Dr. Venn an opportunity to assess your progress and adjust your treatment plan when needed. You can expect to have adjustment appointments about every six weeks. During adjustment appointments, Dr. Venn will inform the patient or their parents of any concerns regarding the braces treatment. This may include concerns regarding oral hygiene, the parts of the braces, or simply updates on treatment progress. Adjustment appointments are usually fairly quick.
How Long Will I Have to Wear Braces?
The duration of a braces treatment will greatly vary depending on the position of the patient’s teeth before beginning treatment. Some patients only require braces for a little over a year, while some may require braces for a few years. During your consultation, Dr. Venn will provide you with an estimate for the duration of your braces treatment.
