Braces for Teens | Cedar Park TX

SmileOn Orthodontics is beyond proud to be part of the Cedar Park community. There is nothing we love more than taking care of our neighbors’ and friends’ in the community’s smiles.

There are many reasons people need braces. The most common misconception is that braces are just for crooked teeth. However, there are specific situations that may result in the need for braces, such as crowding, spacing, impacted teeth, deepbite/overbite, open bite, and underbite.

An underbite occurs when the lower teeth sit in front of the upper teeth. This happens when the lower jaw grows at a faster rate than the upper jaw. It is very important that growth is monitored in situations like these. This is one of the many reasons that it is recommended that children start seeing an orthodontist by the age of seven.

An underbite can be fixed through orthodontic treatment, and it is generally an easy fix when done as soon as it is noticed. However, when ignored, an underbite, like other orthodontic conditions, can create a further problem down the road.

At WildSmiles, we can help. Not only will receiving treatment for a condition such as an under bite create a more pleasing appearance, it will also maintain a good sense of healthfulness of your teeth, mouth, and smile.
