Orthodontics for Children
The American Association of Orthodontics and Dr. Daniel Varallo recommend that children see an orthodontist as young as seven. Why so young?
Most of your child’s baby teeth have erupted by this age, and we can monitor the growth and development of teeth and jaw bones. Dr. Varallo can spot any existing problems and recommend the best time for treatment during early evaluations.
Benefits of an Early Consultation
Phase I orthodontics is used when the child’s permanent teeth have not yet erupted. It helps clear the path for permanent teeth to develop correctly and allows your child to speak, eat, and breathe properly.
Early intervention prevents lengthy Phase II treatment and helps Dr. Varallo:
- Identify extra or missing teeth
- Correct habits
- Guide tooth eruption
- Correct jaw growth abnormalities
- Create room for crowded teeth
- Prevent damage to teeth and gums
- Correct airway issues such as snoring and mouth breathing
- Improve self-esteem
Breathing disorders can present in several ways for children—hyperactivity, bedwetting, snoring, and other sleep problems.
Dr. Varallo can determine if an obstructed airway can be resolved with a palate expander and can redirect poor airway growth, allowing your child to sleep, breathe, and function better.

Orthodontics for Teens
Allow Dr. Varallo to fully customize a treatment plan that works with your teen’s busy lifestyle! We provide more comfortable treatments with less frequent, quicker appointments and less extractions.
The most common time for orthodontic treatment at Varallo Orthodontics is between the ages of 11 and 16. Dr. Varallo can easily recognize spacing, crowding, bite, and alignment issues in this age range.
Also, your teen’s bone and jaw structure are formed enough to allow orthodontic treatment to begin.
At Varallo Orthodontics, your teen can choose between Invisalign clear aligners, Damon metal braces, or clear ceramic braces. Each of these choices offers unique benefits while transforming your teen’s smile.
Benefits of a Straight Smile
Straight teeth that respond well to orthodontic treatment at Varallo Orthodontics can give your teenager tons of benefits, like:
- Less prone to wear and tear, chipping, and tooth trauma
- Easier to keep clean, helping to prevent tooth decay and cavities
- Improving proper chewing and digestion of food
- Reducing the chances of developing gum disease, which can result in bone loss, decay, and tooth loss

Orthodontics for Adults
You can lean on us for what you need, whether you want to move one tooth or are looking for a comprehensive treatment plan! We provide comfortable treatments with fewer and quicker appointments that work with your busy lifestyle.
Orthodontic treatment can benefit your smile at any age, even as an adult. Dr. Varallo sees adults daily who want to know if they can get straighter smiles. That’s why we offer orthodontic treatment for adults in Arlington and Burlington.
Believe it or not, your teeth don’t stop moving after adolescence. Teeth that seemed straight and aligned as a teen can shift later in life, leading to jaw pain, trouble brushing, or a smile that makes you self-conscious.
If you leave misaligned teeth untreated, you may have other dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. You may also notice abnormal wear on the surface of your teeth or that it’s difficult to chew normally.
Dr. Varallo can address these issues and more through orthodontic treatment, giving you the healthy smile you’ve always wanted. Dr. Varallo uses orthodontic forces to move teeth for adults the same way as for children, and you’ll notice the benefits of your treatment in no time.
Why Should You Think About Orthodontic Treatment?
Straight Teeth Are Healthy
After Dr. Varallo straightens your teeth, it’s easier for you to keep them clean through a regular flossing and brushing routine. This helps prevent other oral issues, including problems affecting your overall health.
A Straight Smile Builds Confidence & Self-Esteem
Successful orthodontic treatment at Varallo Orthodontics can help boost your self-confidence, give you a better quality of life, and allow you to smile freely for the first time.
Untreated Oral Issues Will Get Worse
If you refuse or delay orthodontic treatment when Dr. Varallo recommends it, you may develop long-term health issues that may cost you more.
At Varallo Orthodontics, our team understands that teens, kids, and adults have different dental needs, so we give each age group personal care.
