At Northern Virginia Orthodontics, we celebrate braces. They represent a new beginning, a bright future, and a lifetime of confidence ahead. There’s nothing we love more than helping our patients be everything they can be with a smile they can’t wait to share. Our patients know that when they come see us, they will have fun. We are a lighthearted crew equipped with the most advanced technologies and smarts. Yes, we are experts. The top Orthodontists in our region, in fact, but we are people before we are doctors. As we like to say, happy patients, happy life.
Brace yourself for a world filled with color! Metal braces are made of 3 main components: brackets, an arch wire, and Ligature Elastics (known as the rubber bands). Elastics come in a variety of colors that can be changed at each appointment, giving your braces a fun new look!Learn More
Damon braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable and easy to keep clean. Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the wire, which allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortable.Learn More
Out of sight, out of mind. Some people may not even realize that you’re wearing braces. Tieless Damon clear braces are more discrete and resistant to staining and discoloration.

These alveolar perforations stimulate your body’s natural response to help move teeth […]Learn More
Need a bit more room? No problem! The palatial expander “expands” (or widens) your upper jaw by putting gentle pressure on your upper molars each time an adjustment is made.Learn More
Self-Ligating braces are made the same components as metal braces, but they don’t require elastics. This provides a different aesthetic and can be a great option — particularly for adult patients.Learn More
NVO uses Clarity brackets that are made of a translucent material designed to blend with one’s tooth color. They will resist staining and discoloring. Clarity brackets are self-ligating braces constructed with advanced ceramic brackets.Learn More

Northern Virginia Orthodontics believes in our pediatric and adolescent patients maintaining high levels of oral health and hygiene while in braces. Cleaning around braces can be a time-consuming, difficult task for younger patients. Each patient is given all the tools and instructions needed to do so correctly at the initial bonding appointment.
Sometimes, however, this is not enough. We believe that positive reinforcement is the most successful way to maintain certain behaviors over a long period of time.
At each appointment, Big House Bucks will be given based on the requirements below. Everyone has a chance to win great prizes by participating in our incentive program.
