Proper tooth alignment actually protects your dental health. Straight teeth are easier to clean, leading to less decay and gum disease. Plus, when oral bite is right, people have fewer headaches, tooth grinding issues, and TMJ dysfunction. Perhaps best of all, a beautiful smile improves self-confidence and makes for a positive first impression. (more…)

A misaligned smile is one of the worst experiences for any patient to go through. Not all of us grew up having a perfect smile, let alone all of our teeth. A misaligned smile becomes that way based on various variables. Thumb sucking, an overbite, underbite and other factors have a lot to do with how straight or uneven your smile appears. Traditionally, metal braces have been the preferred form of treatment, but that’s old news. Adult and teen patients don’t have time to deal with unsightly metal in their mouths. We couldn’t agree more, which is why we carry some of the most advanced orthodontic treatments available. We’re not just a dental office – we can handle all your orthodontic issues as well.

Do you have perfectly straight teeth? If the answer is no, do not feel bad. Most people do not come close to having straight teeth. As teeth grow in, they press against each other, crowd together, push apart, and ultimately, become misaligned. We all dream of having a beautiful, straight smile, but it’s very improbable that it will happen naturally. Braces are the go-to answer for straightening teeth, but many adults do not want to deal with metal brackets and wires. For those who live in Tyson’s Corner, VA, Avanti Dentistry offers orthodontic alternative to straighten teeth and provide a magnificent smile.
Great Alternatives to Traditional Braces
The expert doctors and practitioners at our office understand that the idea of braces or orthodontic treatment may not sound very appealing, but our orthodontic alternatives will make you reconsider. Our office is equipped with new breakthroughs in dentistry, and we can provide fantastic, natural-looking options for straightening teeth, including:
- Invisalign: Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign does not require brackets or wires. After the dentist takes 3D images of your mouth, teeth, and gums, a certified Invisalign laboratory crafts sets of customized aligners. The aligners fit around the teeth, and each set will be worn for a specified amount of time. Over time, through small pressure, your teeth will begin to line up in perfect position. With Invisalign, there are no dietary restrictions. The aligners can be removed when eating, brushing your teeth, etc.
- Hidden Braces: Also known as lingual braces, are similar to regular braces, except they are mounted on the inside (lingual side) of the teeth. This style of treatment is essentially non-visible to others, and a patient can undergo a complete treatment without feeling self-conscious about the aesthetics.
- Accelerated Orthodontics: Sometimes called “high speed braces” or “six month braces,” these braces move teeth into position in a short amount of time (six to nine months). The brackets and wires are white and clear, making them blend in with the color of your teeth.

Tyson’s Corner Orthodontist: Straight Teeth in Four Easy Steps
Accelerated orthodontics focuses only on the teeth that show when you smile, rather than trying to apply forces to all of the teeth at once. Therefore, while it makes a smaller adjustment to your smile, it is usually a more noticeable adjustment. So the results are faster and more visible.
- Initial Consultation
- The Tyson’s Corner Orthodontist will need to get x-rays and imaging of your teeth. Depending on the severity of your orthodontic problems, they will examine and evaluate if you are a good candidate for accelerated orthodontics.
- Prep (Extraction)
- In limited cases, and only if necessary for treatment, you may have to have a tooth removed to reduce crowding, before your orthodontic treatment can begin.
- The braces are fitted and placed. The clear wire adjusts to the heat of your mouth and becomes rigid, providing light, continuous pressure to gently move your front teeth into place.
- Follow Up Treatment
- After your treatment is completed, you will need to wear an orthodontic retainer to maintain your new smile.
Even if you have refused to get orthodontic treatment in the past, it’s never too late to improve your teeth.

The Tyson’s Corner Orthodontists of Avanti Dentistry can straighten your smile faster than you ever thought possible.
