How to Begin Your Smile Transformation With Orthodontic Treatment

Last month Reyes Dental Group celebrated National Orthodontic Health Awareness Month and we wanted to share information with you on how to take the first steps towards healthier and straighter teeth.

The importance of orthodontic treatment and a healthy bite (when you have straight teeth that properly meet the opposing teeth in the opposite jaw) cannot be overstated. Straight teeth are not only important for esthetic reasons, but when your bite is correct it makes it easier for you to chew, speak, and to take care of your teeth.

Orthodontic treatment usually begins as soon as a child’s permanent teeth start coming in — usually around age seven. At Reyes Dental Group, we are proud to serve patients of all ages. So no matter what your age or what kind of orthodontic issues you may have, our dedicated team is happy to help!

The iTero® digital scanner is a pain-free and fast intraoral scanner that forms 3D images of your mouth. The scanner takes up to 20 pictures per second then sends these images to a specialized screen and within a few minutes, an accurate 3D model is constructed. With this advanced technology, Dr. Reyes can show you what your teeth can look like after Invisalign Clear Aligner treatment so you can decide if orthodontic treatment is the right decision for you.

Dr. Reyes is proud to be a certified Silver level Invisalign® Clear Aligner provider in Lorton, VA — this means he has a higher level of education and experience with Invisalign than a standard provider. Invisalign can help correct a number of dental issues such as:

  • overbite / underbite

  • crossbite

  • gap teeth

  • open bite

  • crowded teeth

  • baby and permanent teeth

If you have any questions about your bite or orthodontic needs, we are always here to help. We look forward to working with you to create a beautiful and healthy smile that you’ve always wished for.
