Luv Braces Recognizes National Orthodontic Health Month and National Bullying Prevention Month in October
The doctors and staff of Luv Braces in Austin are quite busy this month as they are celebrating October by spreading awareness about both National Orthodontic Health Month and National Bullying Prevention Month.
Orthodontists across the country celebrate National Orthodontic Health Month every October. It’s the perfect time to learn about orthodontic health and how it can help patients achieve beautiful, healthy smiles. Identifying problems early can also help, which is why the American Association of Orthodontists recommends children be evaluated by an orthodontist no later than age 7.
This year, National Orthodontic Health Month isn’t the only initiative Luv Braces is rallying around during the month of October. They‘re also passionate about recognizing National Bullying Prevention Month. (more…)
Most parents are aware of the importance of brushing their children’s teeth and scheduling regular cleanings, but often there are a lot of “unknowns” amongst parents of young children about orthodontic treatment. So before you prepare to BRACE yourself or your child, check out this information!

It was a celebration to remember!
Luv Braces held its grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony earlier this month and it was definitely a celebration to remember. We would like to thank all of those who joined us in this very special day. We would especially like to thank the Ambassadors from the Austin Chamber of Commerce for facilitating the ribbon cutting portion of the event. We are so grateful to live and work in a city that supports new businesses and our mission. We cannot begin to thank you everyone enough! (more…)
With the start of the new school year, we are kicking off our Luv 4 Learning program. Every time a new patient starts treatment, we will donate a percentage of that patient’s treatment fee to the school of their choice. This initiative will last throughout the rest of the year.
Education is extremely important to us here at Luv Braces, so we wanted to create a program that would give back to the schools in our area. We wanted to let it be the choice of our patients as to which schools we donated to so that we are able to reach as many local schools as possible.
This is the first, but not the only initiative in which Luv Braces plans to give back to local schools through our Luv 4 Learning program. We are working on initiatives to put in place for 2016 and are excited to how the program grows!
Luv Braces values the importance of education and believes that there is no greater gift to give a child. This program allows us to give back, while also involving our patients and our community. We are open to ideas from local schools on how they think Luv Braces can give back to their school through the Luv 4 Learning program. Call us at (512) 351-8362 with your ideas!
We are so excited to celebrate our one year anniversary! Luv Braces opened in November of 2014. We have been spreading our “LUV” for orthodontics and making people smile in North Austin and its surrounding areas ever since.
We cannot express how thankful we are for all of the support we have received during our first year in business. Our Luv Braces’ team has truly embraced the area and our desire to service the community grows with each new smile we create. (more…)
When we tell parents that their children should first visit an orthodontist at the age of seven, they are sometimes incredulous. “That young?” they say. “But they are still losing their baby teeth!”
Yes, your child’s mouth is still developing, and that’s sort of the point. If you wait until all of a person’s permanent teeth are in and their jaw and bite have settled into place, orthodontic adjustments will likely be more difficult and arduous. Think of it as a journey on sailboat. If you make an effort to be sure that the winds are taking you in the right direction at the beginning of the trip, you won’t have to backtrack far to get to your destination. Age seven is a time when that journey begins, because we can start see how the adult mouth is taking shape and we can steer its development into a healthy bite and straight teeth. (more…)
At Luv Braces, we are committed to keeping up with the latest in orthodontic care and providing our patients with the best experience possible. That’s why we are so excited about the addition of the iTero Element digital impression scanner to our practice!
The iTero Element Scanner is a state-of-the-art digital impression system that eliminates the need for messy putty in your mouth. With our iTero Element Scanner, we can digitally capture a detailed 3D model of your teeth and gums. Not only is this process far more comfortable than the old putty based impressions, but it’s faster and more accurate. Once the scan is complete, we will have an incredibly detailed impression of your teeth and gums that can be used with all Invisalign® services. (more…)
At Luv Braces we realize that orthodontic treatment is an important investment so we are committed to doing everything we can to make it affordable for you and your family. Our office offers complimentary orthodontic consultations that include an orthodontic examination, X-rays and a discussion of recommended orthodontic treatment. In addition, we offer low monthly payments, late appointment times for working parents and weekend appointments upon request.
The cost of treatment depends on the severity of the patient’s problem. We have payment plans to suit different budgets and are flexible with our down payment options. We will do everything we can to find the best payment plan to fit your needs. (more…)
The 6 Stages of Invisalign
Invisalign might seem as if it’s been an option in the orthodontic toolbox for a long time, but the company that started it isn’t even twenty years old, and even then, it took a little while for the idea of using Invisalign’s clear plastic trays to catch on. The treatments really didn’t start gathering mainstream acceptance until around 2004. According to the Invisalign website, Invisalign now accounts for 6% of teen orthodontics and an impressive 31% of adult orthodontics.
Even though the majority of patients are using methods other than Invisalign, most at least inquire about the treatment. After all, Invisalign has some distinct advantages. Namely, the treatment is almost invisible. Also, because the trays are removable, patients can eat whatever they want and clean their teeth without any issues. So if you’re curious about how the Invisalign process works, here’s a rundown: (more…)
