Smiles for Every Size
Orthodontic treatments are about more than just a straight smile; they're about better overall oral health, functionality, and self-esteem.
Through Doc Ak's expertise at SmileOn Orthodontics, Cedar Park Smiles, young and old, can set off on a transformative journey tailored to their unique needs.
The Foundations for a Radiant Smile
The Ideal Age for Evaluation
Doc Ak and The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommend Cedar Park children be evaluated by age seven.
This early assessment means we can identify any potential issues before they become more problematic down the line.
Orthodontic problems are often easier to correct when detected early because jaw and palate growth are more malleable. Early treatment may also mean that your child may avoid permanent teeth extractions, surgery or other significant interventions later in life.
Preventing Future Complications
Early orthodontic treatments can prevent more complex issues later on, reducing the need for invasive procedures and ensuring a smoother journey to a perfect smile.
Why Start Early?
Addressing orthodontic issues early often leads to more straightforward treatments, leveraging the adaptability of a child's growth.
Saves Time & Money
Early interventions can prevent expensive treatments in the future, making it a wise investment in your child's oral health.
Boosts Kids’ Confidence
A straight smile can enhance a child's self-esteem, setting them up for a future filled with confidence.
Orthodontics For Teens
With many Cedar Park teens undergoing orthodontic treatments, it becomes a shared journey, offering mutual support and understanding.
Full orthodontic treatment will generally begin after all the baby teeth have fallen out and permanent teeth have come in, usually around age 12 or 13.
Many of your child’s friends may have braces, so they may want them, too — you know, because it’s the cool thing to have.
We want your child to love their smile because it builds confidence and self-esteem, not just go along with the norm. We will always be honest and upfront about what treatment is necessary and whether your child is a strong candidate for it.
Customized Treatments for Unique Needs
Every teen's orthodontic needs are a little bit different. At SmileOn Orthodontics, we make sure each treatment plan is tailored to the individual.
