Orthodontics in Gaithersburg - Smiles by Roxana

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry specializing in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of jaw, face and bite irregularities (malocclusions*).  Orthodontic treatment is provided by an oral health care provider known as an orthodontist, who has completed two to three years of additional training beyond dental school. 

Recent years have brought about many changes within the dental industry, specifically with regards to orthodontic treatment and care.  Now more than ever patients are experiencing fewer incidences of cavities and missing teeth due to the heightened awareness of fluoride use and preventative dentistry.   This increasing awareness on the health and look of a patient’s smile has fueled the desire for many to seek out orthodontia not only as a medical necessity, but for cosmetic reasons as well.   

Whether it’s traditional braces or custom made removable appliances, orthodontics can help you have the healthy, straight, beautiful smile you’ve been waiting for!

Give us a call today and schedule your orthodontic consultation!

*Malocclusion is the technical term for teeth that don’t fit together correctly.  Malocclusions not only affect the teeth, but also the appearance of the face.  Most malocclusions are inherited; however some are due to acquired habits such as thumb sucking and tongue thrusting.  The spacing left from an adult tooth being extracted or an early loss of a baby tooth can also contribute to a malocclusion.

My s.o was looking for a new orthodontist for his son after running into difficulties with his last one. Many orthodontists are hesitant to take over from another practitioner, but Dr. Roxana was not only willing and able, but incredibly accommodating with scheduling and financing. We could not have been happier for our son. Things have been going so well that my s.o. wound up getting braces himself as well from her! Thank you for taking care of my family's smiles so well!

Love the technician Connie. She is so great and amazing at her job. Scheduling wise it leaves a lot to be desired I have been rescheduled more than 3 times because they could not see me and last minute calls as well. It delayed me by 2 weeks at one point which was infuriating. Connie makes it worth it.
