Is Orthodontic Treatment Just for Kids? –


<< More From Barakat Orthodontics




Dear Dr. Barakat,

Is orthodontic treatment just for kids?


Dear Concerned Parent,

The good news is that healthy teeth can be moved at any age. Many orthodontic problems can be corrected for adults just as easily as for children. For adults, the benefits of orthodontic treatment range from getting that beautiful smile you’ve always wanted, to creating space for cosmetic or restorative dentistry, to straightening teeth and improving gum health.

With all the new techniques available today, orthodontic treatment can easily fit into your lifestyle.


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 in 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.

Barakat Orthodontics is located at 45745 Nokes Blvd., Ste. 175, Sterling, VA 20166. Connect with them by visiting them online, or get social with them on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Barakat Orthodontics can also be reached at (703) 433-9330.
