Personalized Orthodontic Treatment for a Straighter, Healthier Smile

A straight smile plays an important role in your oral health and self-esteem. Our office in Leesburg, VA, has several options available for patients who wish to undergo orthodontic treatment. Our specialty-trained orthodontist, Dr. Sooyeon Ahn, can help you decide between traditional braces, tooth-colored brackets, and Invisalign®. To ensure that every patient has access to a healthier, straighter smile, we also offer flexible financing options. 

Why Pursue a Straighter Smile?

There are several risks which accompany a crooked, crowded, or misaligned smile, including:

  • Cavities: Crooked or crowded teeth make brushing and flossing more difficult, increasing the risk of cavities.
  • Gum disease: Poor oral hygiene can leave your gums susceptible to disease-causing bacteria.
  • Difficulty eating: Severe misalignment can make it difficult to chew your food properly.
  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder: Malocclusion can affect the alignment of your jaws, causing discomfort and other symptoms.

Misalignment can also affect your self-confidence, causing you to cover your smile when you talk or laugh. Many patients who have undergone orthodontic treatment have attributed improved confidence to straighter teeth resulting from braces or Invisalign.

Your Treatment Options

During your orthodontic consultation, Dr. Ahn will evaluate your smile and bite, take pictures of your teeth and facial structures, and discuss your concerns and expectations to decide which type of orthodontic treatment is right for you. We offer a range of orthodontic services at our office, allowing Dr. Ahn to find the optimal option for your needs and goals.

Early Orthodontic Treatment

According to the American Association of Orthodontists, pediatric patients should receive an evaluation from an orthodontic specialist before they are seven years old. Early orthodontic treatment, also known as Phase One treatment, is a specific method used for our younger patients. Our doctors can prescribe early orthodontic treatment during your child's regular checkup. This can help:

  • Establish healthy jaw growth
  • Correct protruding teeth
  • Lower risk of damage to prominent front teeth
  • Shorten treatment with braces in the future

Undergoing early treatment can help guide the teeth into a more favorable position and prevent issues when your child is older. 

Metal Braces

Traditional metal braces are a powerful treatment available to most patients. Metal braces move the teeth using brackets, bands, and wires to help you achieve a straighter, more symmetrical smile. 

Ceramic Braces

For patients who are worried about the aesthetics of traditional metal braces, we can also provide tooth-colored brackets. Ceramic braces are stain-resistant and less noticeable than metal brackets.


Many teens and adults choose Invisalign clear aligners due to their comfort and discreet appearance. Since patients must wear the trays for 22 hours each day, treatment requires a high level of commitment to achieve the desired effects.


In order to maintain the results of your orthodontic treatment, our office can also create a custom retainer for you. These appliances can be removable or permanent.
