Entrust Your Teen's Smile to Dr. Varble

Smile Good. Look Good.

Did you know that a large majority of facial growth occurs during teenage years? Treatment happens during this time to coincide with facial growth and jaw development. Dr. Varble’s goal is to perfect this timing to promote better alignment and to prolong stability for patients. Entrusting your teen’s orthodontic care to Dr. Varble and his team means customized and efficient treatment.

A big goal of orthodontic treatment is to create a smile your teen can feel confident about. One of our treatment goals is to enhance their oral health as well.  Because misaligned teeth are harder to clean, they can cause extra wear of tooth enamel. Receiving treatment from Dr. Varble results in a beautiful, more functional smile.

A Braces Experience Like No Other

Brace Yourself; You’re in for a New Smile!

Braces continue to be the gold standard for fixing misaligned teeth. The technology has come a long way from those most parents remember. Braces have smaller brackets and advanced wires for a more comfortable fit. Varble Orthodontics has invested in the latest braces technology to provide your teen with the best treatment possible, offering self-ligating braces instead of the ties used in traditional braces. Unlike traditional braces, self-ligating braces use a door mechanism that opens and closes to hold the archwire, eliminating the need for elastic ligatures. The benefits of self-ligating braces are:

  • Fewer office visits
  • Efficient tooth movement
  • Decreased treatment time and faster results
  • Increased comfort during treatment
  • Improved oral hygiene

Dr. Varble and his team gather photos and digital scans at your teen’s initial appointment and use that information to create a personalized treatment plan for them. The treatment plan then generates one of a kind brackets that are 3D printed and placed onto the patients teeth.

Teen Braces FAQ

Answering Braces Questions for You and Your Teen

Because each patient has a unique smile, there is no standard treatment time. However, the Varble Orthodontics team will give you a timeline once you begin treatment.

The first few days of having braces can be a little painful. Over-the-counter pain relievers can be helpful for the first few days of treatment.

Foods like popcorn, ice and sticky candy should be avoided during treatment to reduce damaging your braces.

Most patients with braces find an electric toothbrush works best. Floss has to be thread underneath the crosswire to get between each tooth.

Similarly to the timeline of braces, there is no standard price for braces. Your course of treatment and insurance coverage will determine the cost of braces.
