Braces! What Now?
Every teen dreads hearing, “You need braces!” However, there’s nothing to fear. In today’s day and age, you can pick different styles, materials, and even colors. This makes life with braces more comfortable, stylish, and easier than before.
How Long Will I Have to Wear Braces?
It depends on three important factors:
• Early treatment: This helps Dr. Cochran monitor your jaw’s growth and recommend further orthodontic treatment if needed. Not everybody is a good candidate for early treatment. In fact, you might need to wait!
• Type of correction needed: The amount of treatment needed to correct a problem determines how long it will take. Also, everybody reacts to treatments differently. One patient may take only a year to complete the treatment, while it might take another twice that long. Treatment times depend on how quickly your body responds and how much work is needed to get the smile you want.
• You! Your cooperation plays a huge part in completing your treatment on time. Remember, always take care of your braces and the appliances Dr. Cochran gives you. This really will help make your treatment shorter!
