Almost all children nowadays receive braces treatment at some point. At Smile Studios Orthodontics, we offer braces treatments to patients of all ages living in Marietta, Atlanta, and the nearby areas of Georgia. Our offices in Lovejoy, Fairburn, and Powder Springs are all family-friendly locations.
What Are Braces for Kids?
Braces are an appropriate treatment for all ages, whether they are braces for children or another age group. However, children braces may involve additional appliances to help guide the growth of the teeth and jaw throughout the braces treatment. Many patients who begin their braces treatment at a younger age benefit from a quicker, simpler treatment because the teeth have had less time to grow misaligned. Patients who wait longer to receive treatment may have to undergo a more extensive treatment as a result.
How Much Do Children Braces Cost?
On average, the cost of braces will be no more than $135 per month. Like any braces treatment, however, the cost will largely depend on the patient’s unique treatment needs. However, the cost of treatment can be made more affordable with dental insurance or dental financing.

How Long Will I Have to Wear Braces?
The duration of your braces treatment will depend on the position that your teeth are in when you begin treatment. Some patients only need braces for a little over a year, while patients with more severe misalignment issues require a longer treatment. During your consultation, Dr. Venn will provide you with an estimate after developing a personalized treatment plan.
How Will Braces Affect My Life?
Life with braces is a slight adjustment because it comes with limitations on food and can make oral hygiene a little more difficult. Parents need to make sure that their children are eating the correct foods and may need to help when it is time to brush and floss. However, children should be able to participate in all of their usual activities during their braces treatment. To learn more about life with braces, visit our page on the first days with braces.
