Orthodontics for Teens


Braces! What now?

Back in the day when Dr. Nelson had braces, they weren't exactly considered "cool." Nowadays, braces are the only thing keeping teenagers popular! In fact, most NFO teens beg to keep their braces on until they get married (or something like that). Sadly for them, our Damon Braces technology helps align their teeth a little faster than usual, so in just 10-24 months we're typically ready to remove those tiny tickets to stardom. Sorry if you were hoping to have braces for years and years for that "epic-factor." Just keep in touch with Dr. Nelson and he will help you stay cool!

Why should you consider orthodontic treatment?

  • Straight teeth are healthy teeth. Teeth that are properly aligned are easier to keep clean with flossing and brushing, and may help prevent other health problems.
  • A beautiful, straight smile builds confidence. Orthodontic treatment can help boost your self-confidence, giving you a better quality of life and the freedom to smile without holding back!
  • Mouths left untreated can get worse. Not receiving orthodontic treatment when it's needed can create long-term health issues costing you more in the end.
