<< More From Barakat Orthodontics
Dear Dr. Barakat,
Do braces always have to be metal with colored rubber bands?
Dear Concerned Parent,
Absolutely not! Orthodontics has come a long way, and you have several options. Metal braces with colored bands are very popular, especially with kids, because they can customize them at each appointment. This adds an element of ownership and fun to their treatment! Other available options are ceramic or clear brackets, as well as clear aligners, like Invisalign. Your orthodontist can determine if one method is better for your treatment over another.
Dr. Rana Barakat, a board-certified specialist in Orthodontics, has been proudly serving Northern Virginia for more than 20-years! She has built her practice on a personal touch and excellent treatment.
As a parent, she understands wanting the best for your children by giving them beautiful, confident smiles. She makes it a priority to ensure optimal results, but also believes that each patient’s experience during treatment is just as important as the clinical result. As the 2015-16 President of the Virginia Association of Orthodontists, Dr. Barakat’s dedication and expertise reflect why her peers continue to nominate her as a Top Dentist.
