Teen Braces in Silver Spring & Germantown, MD
The teenage years are when many people typically begin their braces treatment. Once all permanent teeth have erupted, braces can help patients achieve a straight, healthy smile. We invite patients from Silver Spring, Germantown, and Washington, D.C. to visit us at Lakeside Dental for exceptional care.
What Are Teen Braces?
Teen braces are braces treatments that are for children ages 12 to 18. This treatment helps patients straighten their teeth and can also correct jaw alignment. This can involve traditional metal braces or a number of other options if patients are looking for a more discreet solution. Lakeside Dental offers a range of braces treatments and works closely with each patient so that they are happy throughout their treatment and with their results.
What Kind of Braces Treatments Are Available?
The braces treatments offered at Lakeside Dental include:
How Long Are Braces Worn For?
The length of time that braces need to be worn will vary from patient to patient depending on the condition of their teeth and the specific braces treatment. The length of a braces treatment can range from one to three years, and requires regular appointments to make adjustments to the fit of the application.
Will Braces Interfere with My School Activities?
Playing an instrument or a contact sport may require some adjustment when you first get your braces, but wearing braces will not stop you from participating in any of your school activities. If you play a contact sport, it is recommended that you wear a mouth guard to protect your braces or appliance.
Braces are the recommended treatment for teens looking to achieve straighter teeth. Lakeside Dental offers this popular treatment and others to the residents of Silver Spring, Germantown, and Washington, D.C. Contact us to schedule an appointment today.
