Our practice offers convenient locations in Powder Springs, Lovejoy, and Fairburn.
What Are Braces for Teens?
Braces for teens are like any other braces treatment, although most patients begin braces at some point in their early teenage years. Braces can help correct misalignment in the jaw and teeth, producing a straight, healthy smile. Many teens are also responsible enough to follow the instructions provided by their orthodontist, as opposed to younger patients who may need some assistance from their parents.
How Much Do Teen Braces Cost?
Like any braces treatment, the cost will largely depend on the patient’s unique treatment needs. On average, the cost of braces will be no more than $135 per month. 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. Patients will need to take special care while brushing and flossing to make sure there is no food caught in the braces. Despite these adjustments, patients will be able to participate in all of their usual activities during their braces treatment.
