Orthodontics

For people with crooked, displaced, and out-of-shape teeth, orthodontic procedures can make all the difference. Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that involves arranging the teeth and jaws in an aesthetically pleasing manner. Dr. Farhad Hakim is an orthodontic care specialist in Herndon, Virginia who has been performing various orthodontic procedures for many years.

At Herndon Dental Clinic, we use the latest technology to correct spaced teeth, jaw and joint disorders, over and under bites, and misalignment. The orthodontic services we offer include:

Orthodontic Braces

Dr. Hakim provides orthodontic braces to adults and children. Thin wires are used to lightly, yet constantly, pull crooked teeth. Over time, these wires bring the misplaced teeth into the desired position. It is a time-taking procedure and, if needed, the dentist will make adjustments when required.

Orthodontic braces for adults and children come in different colors, shapes, and materials. To find out what kind of braces will suit you the best, visit Herndon Dental Center today.

Invisalign®

Invisalign offers an alternative to metal wires and bands. It consists of a clear, virtually undetectable, series of custom-molded aligners that can be removed while eating, drinking, brushing, or flossing.

Eventually, as you continue to replace one set of Invisalign after a week or two, you will notice that your teeth have straightened up. The complete process usually takes about 6 months to a year.

ClearCorrect™

ClearCorrect is another invisible aligner orthodontic option. The clear polymer aligners are generated by 3D computer imaging technology to help move the teeth gradually. The aligners are worn for two to three weeks at a time and can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing. ClearCorrect aligners are comfortable, nearly undetectable, and hygienic since you can remove them as needed.

Fastbraces®

Fastbraces® decrease the amount of time you need to wear braces by moving the root and crown of your teeth simultaneously, unlike with traditional braces. Fastbraces, which are triangular-shaped rather than rectangular, are more comfortable than regular braces and cause less sensitivity. Best of all, Fastbraces treatment can be finished in one year – sometimes even less – unlike the years of treatment often needed with traditional braces!

Sleep Apnea

Patients with sleep apnea experience interruptions in their breathing for short periods of time while they’re sleeping, which can be dangerous if not treated. Dr. Hakim offers retainers and small oral appliances to help treat sleep apnea, and he can refer patients to a sleep specialist if they require additional intervention, such as a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device.
