Welcoming both adults and children, we’re always working to provide the highest levels of care at the lowest levels of stress. Our treatment options vary, and are often tailored right to the patient starting with your first visit. We’ll build a treatment plan that fits your orthodontic needs to the letter, relieving you of the added research and miscommunication that comes with a one-size-fits-all approach.
The same holds true for your financing options, too. Cash, check or credit card, we’re always looking for ways to make your life simpler. It’s why we accept all PPO Insurance.
Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry focused on correcting irregularities of the teeth and jaw, especially in how they align and fit together. There are several ortho treatment options available, and our team will make certain that you receive the one that is right for your personal needs. Through orthodontics, we can correct teeth that are misaligned, crowded, gapped, or spaced.
We can also correct problems with the alignment of the bite, including overbite, underbite, open bite, and crossbite. Orthodontic treatment is now faster, more comfortable, and more effective than in years past–making now a great time to straighten your smile.
Omar Orthodontics helps patients transform their smiles with the following orthodontic procedures. During your consultation, our Chantilly orthodontist, Dr. Anisa Omar, will carefully evaluate your smile to determine the best treatment for your smile. Our treatments help correct common orthodontic problems, including:
- Overbite: In an overbite, the upper front teeth extend out over the lower front teeth. This sometimes causes the lower front teeth to bite into the roof of the mouth.
- Underbite: An underbite occurs when the lower jaw extends out, resulting in the lower front teeth sitting in front of the upper front teeth.
- Open Bite: An open bite is characterized by upper and lower front teeth that do not overlap. This often causes problems with proper chewing, and it may also contribute to other unwanted habits like tongue thrusting.
- Crossbite: In a crossbite, the upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth. This may result in tooth stratification and misaligned jaw growth.
- Upper Front Teeth Protrusion: In this type of bite, the upper teeth extend too far forward or the lower front teeth do not extend far enough forward. This can impact both the appearance and function of the teeth.
- Dental Midlines Not Matched: This orthodontic problem is caused when the back bite does not fit and match correctly, and it may negatively impact the jaw and proper dental function.
While many patients think of orthodontics as an effective way to improve the aesthetics of their smile, orthodontic treatment can also be very beneficial to your oral health and function. Correctly aligned teeth are generally at a lower risk for dental problems like tooth decay and gum disease, and orthodontics can also make it easier for you to chew, eat, and speak properly.
We know what it’s like to be in your shoes, which is why we take the time to find the procedures and appliances that work best for our patients — not us. Take a look through some of our most popular orthodontic treatments, and don’t hesitate to call or schedule an appointment to talk about your options.
Realigning your teeth takes judgment, expertise and above all, time. But with the help of certain techniques, such as Propel®, patients can significantly shrink their treatment timeline. Propel stimulates the bone remodeling process, working alongside traditional braces or clear braces to improve your smile through a non-invasive procedure.
Our early treatment plans can help children get acclimated with proper orthodontic care as young as 7 years old, encouraging the preventive measures that lead to healthier gums, teeth and bones. Dr. Omar is happy to have a one-on-two consultation with you and your child to figure out the best course of action for their unique situation.
Despite the number advanced competing treatments, metal braces are almost as common as they’ve ever been. And there’s a reason for that: They work. Traditional braces are crafted from high-grade stainless steel which helps to keep them sturdy and functioning.
Clear braces are designed for older teens and adults looking for a treatment that can provide similar realignments to traditional braces without the visual effect. They are virtually unnoticeable but are attached the same way that metal braces are.
