Healthy Smiles Don’t Have an Age Limit
It’s never too late (or too early!) for an amazing healthy smile with Reston Orthodontics. We offer treatments and plans for smiles of all sizes, from the littlest around, to Gramma and Grandpa.
Orthodontics for Children
Early intervention can work wonders for your child's smile. Dr. Kim and the American Association of Orthodontists both recommend that every child sees an orthodontist by the age of seven.
Why so soon? Let’s find out!
Around 10% of all kids will benefit from early intervention. This early treatment is called two-phase treatment, and it can be the difference between a smooth transition to a healthy bite and a whole lot of headaches and corrective care.
Age seven is the perfect time for Dr. Kim to notice a whole roster of developing orthodontic issues.
Problems such as crowding, misalignment, and bite issues can be caught early, and we can set your child up for success.
Early intervention means we can guide the growth and development of your child’s teeth to help prevent any orthodontic issues from forming or worsening.
Benefits of Orthodontics for Children
Choosing orthodontics for your child can have numerous long-term benefits.

Orthodontics for Teens
Embrace Your Best Smile
Being a teenager is an exciting time filled with growth and self-discovery. At Reston Orthodontics, we know you want a confident smile in these transformative years.
Our orthodontic treatments for teens are designed to align teeth, correct bite issues, and enhance your smile, empowering them to face the world with confidence. So, how does orthodontics for teens work? Let's break it down.
Dr. Kim will conduct a thorough assessment of your teeth, jaws, and facial structure.
This allows us to find any orthodontic concerns and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.
Straightening & Aligning
Once your treatment plan is in place, we'll begin the process of gradually shifting your teeth into their ideal positions.
Through the use of gentle and controlled forces, we'll guide your teeth into proper alignment, correcting any misalignments or crowding for a beautifully harmonized smile.
Advanced Treatment Options
We offer a variety of orthodontic options specifically designed for teens. From traditional metal braces to more discreet alternatives like ceramic braces or clear aligners, we have solutions for your lifestyle and preferences. Together, we'll choose the best option to achieve your dream smile.
Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment
The teen years are ideal for orthodontic treatment. That’s because their permanent teeth have come in and their jaw is almost done growing.
Your teen benefits from quality Reston Orthodontics care in all sorts of ways:
- Style: Orthodontic treatment fixes crooked teeth and makes your teen’s smile more symmetrical, which can totally transform their appearance. It boosts self-esteem and leaves a lasting positive impression on others.
- Oral Health: When teeth are straight, they’re easier to clean. Orthodontic treatment during the teen years means a lifetime of healthy, happy smiles, and less exposure to the risk of gum disease like gingivitis.
- Bite Alignment: Orthodontic treatment can fix bite problems like overbites, underbites, and crossbites. It's not just about looking better; it's about having a healthy bite that functions perfectly.
- Confidence: Being a teenager means being self-conscious about how you look, but orthodontic treatment can help with that. Straightening their teeth can give your teen a confidence boost, so they smile freely and be social without any worries.
Orthodontics for Adults
You might be surprised to learn that one in every five new Reston-area orthodontic patients is an adult. But why is that?
It turns out that adult orthodontics have come a long way, and roughly 20 percent of Americans wearing braces are over the age of 18.
There’s no age limit for outstanding smiles. At Reston Orthodontics, we believe that adults deserve care just as much as the kiddos.
Dr. Kim and the Reston Orthodontics team can fix misalignments, gaps, and all sorts of bite issues, leaving you a confident, healthy smile you’ll love.
How it Works
Dr. Kim will conduct a thorough evaluation of your teeth, jaw alignment, and overall oral health. This gives us the info we need to make your specific treatment plan.
Diverse Treatment Options
Our expert team will guide your teeth into proper alignment using gentle yet powerful methods. We'll gradually shift your teeth into their perfect positions, correcting misalignments and leaving you with the smile you've always wanted.
A beautiful smile can level up your self-esteem and confidence, both personally and professionally.
By straightening your smile, orthodontic treatment can help you feel more comfortable and self-assured in any situation.
Better Oral Health
Straight teeth aren’t just attractive, but they‘re easier to clean, too.
Straight teeth reduce the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues, contributing to better long-term dental health and overall well-being.
Orthodontic treatment can correct bite issues and align your jaw properly, leading to a healthier bite. This can lessen issues like trouble chewing or speaking and even reduce wear on your teeth due to misalignment.
Investing in orthodontic treatment as an adult is an investment in your long-term oral health and quality of life. By addressing alignment issues, you can cut-off more severe dental issues that could come up in the future.
At Reston Orthodontics, we're dedicated to helping adults like you achieve their dream smiles. Our commitment to excellent care extends to everyone in and around Reston, and that means you!
