Metal braces are still the most common type of treatment for orthodontic patients of all ages. Modern metal braces are flatter and smaller, making them much more comfortable than ones worn in the past. Our Lorton dentists may recommend braces if you or your child suffer from crooked teeth, crowded teeth, jaw problems, or a misaligned bite.
Traditional Braces Evaluation
A complete orthodontic evaluation allows Dr. Khattab to assess oral development as a whole. During the evaluation, our team will inspect the teeth and gums, as well as the bones and muscles in and around the mouth. An orthodontic evaluation gives Dr. Khattab the ability to plan for you or your child’s future dental needs.
Retainers and Post-Orthodontic Treatment
Orthodontic treatment can be time-consuming and expensive, so it is important to care for your new smile to ensure your teeth don’t move after your orthodontic treatment. This critical follow-up stage usually involves wearing a retainer. At Lorton Town Dental we offer several different types of retainers, all of which are custom-made to fit your child's smile.
Has you or your child lost a retainer? We can help! Just give our Lorton dental office a call and we'll replace it as quickly as possible.
