Orthodontic Treatment

Chantilly, VA Dentist

Braces are used to treat all types of patients, from adults to young teens and even children. Teeth tend to grow in crooked for various reasons. Braces are the standard means of fixing crooked or misaligned teeth.

Functional Orthodontics
Functional orthodontics involves the use of braces to straighten the teeth in order to correct any imbalance in the bite. Functional orthodontics can also be used to treat teeth that are crowded. Most dentists who practice functional orthodontics, will use braces to realign the teeth into a more natural position whenever possible instead of opting to pull the teeth.

Types of Braces
There are a variety of different types of braces. Your orthodontist will work with you to decide which type of braces is best for you and your dental condition.

Clear Braces
One of the most popular choices in braces right now is to opt for invisible or clear braces instead of traditional metal braces. You can read more about invisible braces here.

Traditional Braces
Wires, brackets, and sometimes rubber bands all work together to gradually move the teeth and bone into proper alignment.

If you’re considering braces, contact your dentist for more information and to schedule a consultation. Your dentist will need to examine your mouth and jaw thoroughly before deciding if and/or what kind of braces is right for you.
