Dentist Lorton VA | Desired Dental | Adult Orthodontics

Part of the perfect smile is having straight, beautiful teeth. Did you shy away from braces as a child because the thought of a mouthful of metal didn’t seem appealing, but now, as an adult, you wish you had straightened your teeth when you had the chance? With adult orthodontics from Desired Dental, you get a second chance at getting the smile you always wanted.

Even if you had braces as a child, your teeth can still shift throughout your life, and your smile may not be as straight as it once was. Adult orthodontics straighten your teeth, which in turn makes them easier to clean and floss, and a clean mouth is a healthy mouth. Straightening your teeth can also alleviate bite problems that may cause jaw pain, as your bite is realigned.

If your teeth are crooked or crowded, or you have an overbite or underbite, adult orthodontics may be right for you. It’s not just about how your smile looks, but straighter teeth can change the way your whole mouth functions, and improve your oral health.

There are a variety of new adult orthodontic options available to patients today, and the good news is that they are very different from the cumbersome metal braces you knew as a child. Many are virtually undetectable, allowing you to straighten your teeth discreetly.

We offer three different types of adult orthodontics. Let Desired Dental help you get a straighter, perfect smile that you’ve always dreamed about.
