Teen Braces FAQ

What You and Your Teen Should Know About Braces Treatment at Olsen Orthodontics

Many of our teenage patients have a lot of questions when it comes to getting braces. How will braces affect my day-to-day life? Will I be limited to what I can eat? How can I continue proper oral hygiene with braces? All of these are very valid questions that we would love to answer for you.

We have taken some time to answer some of our most frequently asked questions to the right. We hope you find what you’re looking for, but if you don’t, please call us as we’d love to help answer any and all of your questions!

What are braces?

Braces are metal or ceramic brackets that we bond to your teeth and connect with an archwire. This archwire helps to gently guide your teeth into a more preferred placement.

How long will I have to wear my braces?

Every smile is unique, so the length of your orthodontic treatment will be dependent upon your specific smile needs!

How do I keep up my oral hygiene with braces?

We recommend brushing after every meal, or three times a day with braces. We also recommend flossing regularly to help keep your teeth and gums healthy!

Should I still have regular dental checkups with braces?

Yes, you should definitely still go to your dentist regularly even though you have braces! They will be able to help you maintain excellent oral hygiene!

Will my braces hurt?

While you might feel a bit of discomfort with your braces, they definitely won’t hurt! The discomfort arises as your teeth gradually begin to shift into place.

Will I be limited to what I can eat?

While there are some limitations to what you can eat, there are not many! When you get your braces on, Dr. Olsen will go over a list of foods you should avoid.

Will braces affect my speech?

While it might take some time to get used to talking with braces on, there will be no long term effect on your speech.

Can I still participate in extracurricular activities?

Yes, you absolutely will still be able to participate in your normal extracurricular activities!
