Straighter Teeth for All Ages in Gaithersburg
There is no age limit when it comes to straightening your smile. While children and teens are the ones commonly associated with receiving braces and orthodontic care, adults benefit from treatment as well.
Having straighter teeth isn’t just beneficial for cosmetic reasons; a properly situated bite also contributes positively to your oral health. Dr. Roxana Homayoun wants to help everyone achieve their ideal appearance as well as gain a smile that lasts for years to come. Her office, Smiles by Roxana, provides braces in Gaithersburg for anyone looking to improve the alignment of their teeth.
What Our Kentlands Orthodontist has to Offer
No matter your age, there is an orthodontic option available to rejuvenate the function and aesthetics of your smile. Dr. Homayoun understands that not everyone’s dental situation is the same and so provides a variety of braces and aligners to ensure each patient is treated based on their individual needs and appearance goals.
Our Gaithersburg dental practice offers minimally visible and convenient options, such as lingual and self-ligating braces for our young patients. These braces possess many cosmetic and functional advantages while straightening teeth as effectively as their conventional counterparts. Some of the features associated with these options include:
Lingual Braces are distinguished by their design, wherein the wire and customized brackets are placed behind teeth rather than in front of them. This allows for treatment to be more discreet as the braces shift the bite into alignment.
Self-Ligating Braces are different from traditional metal braces due to their lack of elastic bands. Patients may prefer the self-ligating design as it reduces the likelihood of food becoming trapped and excessive friction while the teeth are repositioned.
Depending on your preferences and dental needs, Smiles by Roxana also has other options available including traditional metal, clear ceramic, Invisalign® clear aligners, and Six Month Smiles® cosmetic braces.
What to Expect from Braces Care with Dr. Homayoun
With a thorough examination of the severity of your misalignment and discussion of your individual goals, Dr. Homayoun works with you to determine what orthodontic treatment is best suited to your needs. It is important to us that the care we provide contributes to the specific results you desire. No matter if aesthetics or length of treatment is your primary concern, our orthodontist takes this and the state of your oral health into consideration when forming a plan for you.
At your consultation, we begin by taking x-rays to gain a comprehensive view of your bite orientation and ensure the recommendations we make are the most appropriate for your situation. For instance, while many value Invisalign® as a virtually invisible option for minor to moderate issues, alternative options may be recommended for more severe cases of crowding and malocclusion. By taking the time to make an accurate assessment and having a variety of braces and clear aligner systems available, our practice strives to accommodate patients of all ages and stages of dental development.
