Are you interested in straightening your smile? Ask our orthodontists about adult orthodontics!
Our experienced orthodontists and team provide adult orthodontics in Burke, Fairfax, Gainesville and Herndon, Virginia, to straighten your teeth and correct the alignment of your jaws. While orthodontic treatment is most common among teenagers, adults can also receive these treatments. In fact, about 25% of all orthodontic patients are adults.
Adult patients, especially those with misaligned teeth, can be more prone to gum or bone loss, as well as tooth wear and tooth loss. This is all the more reason to align your teeth with a professional and experienced orthodontic team like ours.
Dr. Sherif Elhady offers a variety of treatment options to meet your needs. We understand that your lifestyle is busy and that traditional braces may not be the right option, and we can offer several alternatives that will provide you with the results you desire. This includes more discreet options such as clear aligners and lingual braces, both of which work to move your teeth into their proper positions while also allowing you to maintain a natural-looking smile.
We encourage you to consider orthodontic treatment if you have misaligned or crooked teeth. Orthodontics not only gives you a more beautiful smile but also makes it easier for you to keep your teeth clean and healthy. This minimizes your risk of cavities, gum disease, problems associated with TMJ or TMD, tooth wear, and other conditions.
Adult orthodontics brings with it a unique set of circumstances and concerns, each of which our team is qualified to handle. For instance, adults’ bones have stopped growing, which means that an adult orthodontics patient may need orthognathic surgery to align the jawbones.
