Your First Visit

At your first visit to Ashburn Orthodontics you will be greeted by one of our staff members and given a tour of our office. We will then provide you with an introduction and discuss your orthodontic concerns and goals. After a brief oral examination, Dr. Kortam will explain her findings and make a recommendation for treatment should orthodontic treatment be necessary. We will discuss the orthodontic process and review your financial options and applicable insurance coverage in detail prior to the beginning of treatment.

Right Age

Orthodontists today can successfully correct most problems regardless of the patient’s age. But that does not mean that the orthodontic treatment starting age does not matter. In fact it may play a significant role in the total time and expenses required for the completion of the orthodontic treatment.

The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that all children have a check-up with an orthodontist by the time they reach age 7, for early detection of any potential problems. By the age 7, some of the permanent teeth have erupted, so that most children have a mix of adult and baby teeth. At this stage of mixed dentition, an orthodontist can spot potential orthodontic problems related to jaw growth and eruption of adult teeth. Some growth-related orthodontic problems are easier to correct when they are identified early…while the facial bones are still growing.

Most orthodontic problems are ideally treated during this time. Usually, all or most permanent teeth are erupted and patients are at one of their most active phases of growth. This is a great time to correct most problems, as the jaws are actively growing and their growth can be most easily modified during this time.

One of the goals at Ashburn Orthodontics is to time treatment so that the treatment can be accomplished in a single phase. This helps to keep treatment as efficient as possible, thus reducing the overall costs to the patient.

Orthodontics is not just for children. Healthy teeth can be moved at any age, and it is never too late to improve your smile. Ashburn Orthodontics offers many innovative options in braces for adults, including clear/ceramic braces, lingual braces and Invisalign®.
