How Does Early Orthodontic Treatment Help Prevent Future Problems?

for Kids

As a parent in Austin or Bee Cave, you want the best for your child. That includes healthy teeth and a stunning smile.

Dr. Tahbaz and Dr. Rezapour will treat your children like our own by giving them the best possible orthodontic care.

Kids Should Get an Orthodontic Check-Up By 7

By the time kids turn seven, their teeth and jaws have grown enough that we can spot small issues while they still have some baby teeth. A quick check-up might show everything’s A-OK, and there’s no need for braces.

Or, Dr. Tahbaz or Dr. Rezapour may identify a developing problem but recommend monitoring your child's growth and development and, if indicated, beginning treatment at the appropriate time for your child.

In some cases, they might recommend jumping on treatment early to fix a problem that’s easier to tackle now rather than later.

All About Phase One Treatment

Getting a head start with orthodontic check-ups can nip bigger issues in the bud, leading to easier and quicker treatments down the road. Dr. Tahbaz and Dr. Rezapour know how to spot the signs early, sometimes achieving results that might not be possible once your child’s face and jaws have fully developed.

Most kids start braces between the ages of nine and 14, but catching problems early can make a big difference. If it looks like your child might need braces, the doctors will pinpoint the best time to start. This proactive approach keeps things simple and can save a lot of hassle later on.

for Teens

The most common time for orthodontic treatment in Austin and Bee Cave is during the teen years when most permanent teeth are in place.

Luckily, some new solutions we have at Luv Braces work to make your teen’s treatment process easier than ever.

The Best Time for Treatment

Dr. Tahbaz and Dr. Rezapour are experts at detecting issues like spacing, crowding, bite, and alignment—especially in teens, whose bones and jaws are just right for starting safe and effective orthodontic treatments. Many teens might already be in the middle of their orthodontic journey, moving from phase one into full braces or other treatments.

Remember, it's not just about a winning smile. Ignoring dental issues can really impact your teen’s overall oral health down the line. At Luv Braces, your teen can maintain their active lifestyles with treatment options that won’t disrupt the demands of sports, band, and other extracurriculars they enjoy.

Signs of a Bad Bite

  • Crooked or crowded teeth
  • Missing or extra teeth
  • An overbite or underbite
  • Incorrect jaw position
  • A disorder of the jaw joint

for Adults

Do you luv your smile? You can! We know that you’re never too old to benefit from orthodontic treatment.

If you live in the Austin or Bee Cave area, your smile is probably one of the first things people notice about you.

Better Smiles at Any Age

Healthy teeth can be moved at any age—even in adulthood! Orthodontic forces move teeth in the same way for both adults and children, and Dr. Tahbaz and Dr. Rezapour are experts for all ages.

You can do almost anything during orthodontic treatment – sing, play a musical instrument, dine out, kiss, and take photos you love. Some adjustments may be necessary, but, if you’re like the vast majority of adult patients, you’ll adjust quickly.

New techniques and materials have made wearing braces more comfortable and convenient than ever. During your consultation, Dr. Tahbaz and Dr. Rezapour can determine if you’ll benefit from treatment.

After carefully analyzing your needed correction, Dr. Tahbaz and Dr. Rezapour will recommend the best treatment to improve your smile, including the different types of braces that are best for you.

Why Orthodontic Health Matters at Every Age

Orthodontic care is about more than a picture-perfect smile—it's about laying the foundation for a lifetime of good oral health. Neglecting orthodontic issues can lead to a cascade of dental and health problems at any age.

Misaligned teeth can contribute to improper chewing, which affects digestion and overall nutrition. Poor alignment also makes it harder to clean teeth properly, increasing the risk of cavities, gum disease, and even tooth loss.

For children and teens, timely orthodontic care can guide proper jaw growth, correct harmful oral habits, and improve the appearance and function of their teeth.

Adults benefit too, as treatment can prevent bone loss around teeth, improve oral health, and boost self-confidence.

Don’t let dental issues sideline your or your family’s health. Whether you’re considering braces for your child or yourself, remember that the stakes are high—orthodontic health is a crucial part of overall well-being at any stage of life.

At Luv Braces, we’re committed to providing tailored treatments that ensure every member of your family receives the care they need to keep their smile bright and their teeth healthy.
