Leesburg and Purcellville Orthodontics
Support Your Health – Transform Your Smile!
Recent advances in orthodontia have made it easier for adults and children, to fix misaligned teeth as well as achieve a better bite and more pleasing smile. Some of our approaches include:
- Invisalign™ braces – the invisible and removable braces
- Clarity™ braces – ceramic, self-ligating brackets engineered to move teeth quickly!
Proper alignment does more than just create a pleasing smile. It makes cleaning easier for you and our dental team, increases the longevity of your natural teeth, and improves tooth and jaw function.
Talk with Dr. Amanda Brown about our orthodontic procedures to enhance your look and support better oral health.
Orthodontics for Kids – Earlier is Better!
When it comes to pediatric orthodontics, early intervention is the best option. In fact, The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children receive an orthodontic evaluation no later than age seven. Getting kids into braces early – before bones have stopped growing – makes correcting alignment issues much easier and it helps ensure that the correction lasts.
If your children already come to us for their regular care, you can be sure that we are also watching their orthodontic development. If not, please be sure to keep an eye on the following:
- Baby teeth lost earlier or later than usual
- Mouth breathing
- Thumb sucking
- Finger sucking
- Difficulty biting or chewing
- Crowded teeth
- Top teeth protruding over bottom teeth
- Bottom teeth overlapping top teeth
- Crowded or overly gapped teeth
- Teeth that do not meet properly (look to see if the spaces between the front teeth line up)
If you see any of these symptoms or have any concerns about the way your child’s teeth look or function, please schedule a consultation to see if your child needs braces right away.
Adult Braces – Because Everyone Deserves a Great Smile
When most people think of orthodontics, they think of children wearing a mouthful of hardware. Think again … sometimes adults need braces, too! No matter what your age – from 18 to 81 – we can help get your teeth aligned, healthy, and beautiful. If your teeth are crowded, gapped, crooked or you have an over- or underbite, talk to us about your braces options.
Invisalign – The Straightening Innovation for Adults
Crooked, gapped, crowded teeth can be more than embarrassing, they can be bad for your oral health, causing headaches and jaw pain, plaque build-up, and they may even increase your risk for gum disease. We have a terrific solution – Invisalign clear braces.
Invisalign braces are not only virtually invisible, they can be removed while eating, for home hygiene, and even for a special occasion or to play an instrument! Professionals love them because they can be removed for presentations, to meet with clients, or any other time a professional appearance is a must.
Whatever your orthodontic needs are, we can help you get the healthy, straight smile you have been looking for!
