Thankfully, modern dentistry has made it possible for people of all ages to achieve the smile of
their dreams. With that in mind, Galleria Dental Smiles is the best dental clinic in Herndon and
Northern VA for all your orthodontic needs.
When it comes to orthodontics, we offer both traditional braces and Invisalign. We will work with
you to determine which option is best for your individual needs. We want you to be happy with
your smile, so we will take the time to make sure you get the best possible treatment.

What to Expect with Our Orthodontic Treatment for Kids, Teens, and Adults

At Galleria Dental Smiles, we offer various orthodontic treatment options for kids, teens, and
adults. Our orthodontic treatment options include the following:

  • Traditional braces: Traditional braces are made of metal brackets and wires that are
    attached to your teeth. They are the most popular type of braces, and they are effective
    at correcting a variety of dental problems.
  • Invisalign: Invisalign is a transparent aligner system that is virtually invisible. It’s popular
    among adults who are looking for a more discreet orthodontic treatment option.

Orthodontic for Kids

As your child grows, their smile will change too. At around age seven, their baby teeth will start
to fall out, and their adult teeth will start to come in. This is when you may start to notice that
their teeth are not as straight as they used to be. If you’re concerned about their teeth, then you
may want to consider taking them to see an orthodontist here at Galleria Dental Smiles.

There are a few different types of orthodontic treatments available for kids. The most common type is braces, which are metal brackets that are attached to the teeth and use wires to move
the teeth into the correct position.

Other types of orthodontic treatments include clear aligners, which are clear plastic trays that fit
over the teeth, and palatal expanders, which are devices that are used to widen the upper jaw.
Your orthodontist will be able to recommend the best type of treatment for your child based on
their individual needs.

What is the Best Age For Your Child to Receive Orthodontic Treatment?

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children have an orthodontic evaluation by the age of seven. This is because some problems, such as crowding, can be easier to treat if they’re caught early. 

However, every child is different, and some may not need treatment until they’re older. Our orthodontists can tell you if your child is a good candidate for treatment and when the best time for treatment would be. 

Orthodontics for Teenagers

As a teenager, your child is likely to be very self-conscious about their appearance. They may feel like they are the only ones with crooked teeth or an overbite. Orthodontic treatment can give your teenager the confidence they need to smile and feel good about themselves.

Braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment for teenagers. They are very effective at straightening teeth and correcting bite problems. There are many different types of braces available, including traditional metal braces, clear braces, and invisible braces. With that in mind, our orthodontists can help you choose the type of braces that is right for your child.

Invisalign is another popular orthodontic treatment for teenagers. It uses clear, removable aligners to straighten teeth. Invisalign is an excellent option for teenagers who are self-conscious about wearing braces.

If you’re thinking about orthodontic treatment for your teenager, the first step is to book a consultation with an orthodontist here at Galleria Dental Smiles. Our team of professionals will be able to assess your child’s teeth and bite and advise you on the best course of treatment.

Orthodontics for Adults

As an adult, you may have always wanted to correct your teeth and finally have the beautiful, straight smile you’ve always wanted. But you may have thought that it was too late or that orthodontics was just for kids. Well, orthodontics for adults is becoming increasingly common, and at Galleria Dental Smiles, we’re happy to offer this service to our patients. 

If you’re considering orthodontics as an adult, there are a few things you should know. First of all, it’s never too late to get braces! Whether you had them as a child and your teeth have shifted back out of place, or you’ve never had them before, we can help. 

Secondly, there are a few different types of braces that are available for adults. Traditional metal braces are still an option, but many adults opt for clear or ceramic braces, which are less noticeable. We also offer Invisalign, which are clear, virtually invisible, removable aligners. 

Finally, you should know that orthodontic treatment can take a little longer for adults than for children, since our teeth are fully developed and may be more stubborn. However, the results are worth it, and you’ll finally have the smile you’ve always wanted! 

Don’t let crooked teeth hold you back any longer! Schedule a consultation with our office today to see how we can help you achieve the beautiful, straight smile you’ve always wanted.
