Orthodontics for all ages

Family orthodontists in Fredericksburg & Stafford

At Rappahannock Orthodontics, we know that straightening teeth is about more than a great-looking smile. If your teeth aren’t aligned properly, you may have problems biting, chewing, or speaking, now or in the future. Orthodontic treatment often starts in childhood as the growth process helps move the teeth more easily and allows for shorter treatment times. However, orthodontic treatment can be effective at any age, which is why we offer family orthodontic services for patients of all ages.

Schedule consultation

Kids' orthodontics

Orthodontics for kids

One of the most important milestones in a child’s life is their first visit to a family orthodontist. When it comes to your child’s dental health, scheduling a free consultation at our family orthodontics office earlier rather than later ensures their smile is bright and beautiful throughout their life. While most children won’t need early treatment, scheduling a free evaluation with our family orthodontists in Fredericksburg and Stafford can put your mind at ease. In some severe cases of crossbite, crowding, or protruding teeth, we may suggest early orthodontic treatment for children. We may use devices such as palatal expanders to widen the upper jaw or tooth extraction to make room for the adult teeth.

Orthodontics for teens

Many kids in their early teens begin orthodontic treatment. It’s helpful to start in the 11-13-year-old age range as so many of your child’s classmates will also be undergoing orthodontic treatment.

Your teen has several options for braces, including metal and clear braces and Invisalign® Teen clear aligners, and our Fredericksburg and Stafford family orthodontists are happy to discuss them with you. The first step to straightening your teen’s teeth is scheduling their complimentary consultation.

Adult orthodontics

Orthodontics for adults

It’s never too late to perfect your smile! While we can’t change the bone structure for adults, we can straighten your teeth.

Together, you and one of our family orthodontists in Fredericksburg or Stafford will discuss your options for braces, including our discreet options such as clear braces and Invisalign® clear aligners, and what you can expect. Ensuring good dental hygiene is even more important as adults because we are more prone to periodontal disease.

Schedule a free consultation with our family orthodontists

Orthodontic treatment can begin at any time for adults. For children, it’s common to schedule an evaluation when their baby teeth have fallen out, and most adult teeth are in place, around seven years old.

    Every appointment has been a personal, amazing experience. And we were taken especially good care of by Robin. She leveraged our insurance beyond our expectations. This practice is an efficient, compassionate group and always goes the extra mile.

    The office staff are professional and nice, Matthew Caspersen is really good with the kids. What I love is the seamless office environment, it’s simple to make appts and they take you back soon after you check in, it’s easy. It is by far the smoothest operating dr office I have ever experienced!
