The Perfect Fit for
That means we begin your child’s treatment at just the right moment—not when it's convenient for the doctor, but when it's best for your child. This is an important part of the Griffin & Errera difference.
The Griffin & Errera Difference
We use state-of-the-art equipment that you won't see in most orthodontic offices to map your teeth, mouth, and jaws. Digital mapping enables us to build molds and specific appliances that are perfectly suited to you, and, in most cases, we can avoid messy impressions.
You won't wait weeks for your appliance because we create these special and unique orthodontic devices on-site in our Warrenton office. This allows us to quickly, efficiently, and cost-effectively deliver the treatment you need.
If you’re dreading the thought of long dental appointments and a mouth full of metal wires, Invisalign clear aligners from Griffin & Errera Orthodontics may be the right choice to straighten your teeth. We offer Invisalign for teens and adults at our offices in Warrenton, Middleburg, and Culpeper.
Dr. Griffin and Dr. Errera can use Invisalign to give you a stunning smile in almost half the time of traditional braces by creating a series of clear, custom-fit aligners. At your first free consultation, your orthodontist will sit down with you and assess the current state of your teeth and listen to the results you want.
Dr. Griffin and Dr. Errera precisely design each set of Invisalign trays to adjust your teeth to a predetermined location. You can even see a digital projection of your final results before you start treatment.
After receiving your Invisalign aligners, you should wear them as much as possible, but you can easily remove them for eating, flossing and brushing.
You’ll come into Griffin & Errera Orthodontics for check-ups about every four to six weeks to get your new sets of aligners and so your orthodontist can check the progress of your teeth. These checkups are generally quick and painless because you won’t have any wires to check or tighten.
Since your braces are designed just for you, they move your teeth more efficiently. You’ll enjoy a shorter treatment with fewer office visits.
Best of all, LightForce braces are more comfortable than traditional braces because they fit every tooth perfectly.
Clarity braces are another great option for teens and adults who don’t want the appearance of metal braces. Made from the highest grade ceramic materials, clarity braces blend perfectly with your teeth.
For special occasions or want to have a little fun, add colors just like traditional metal braces.
Choose Clarity or LightForce clear braces to get the confidence to show off an awesome smile during and after treatment.
Metal braces are the most common orthodontic appliance and can correct even the most severe orthodontic issues. At Griffin & Errera Orthodontics, this reliable treatment can help patients of all ages get healthier smiles.
When you choose metal braces, the team at Griffin & Errera Orthodontics will collect photos and X-rays of your mouth. Sometimes we’ll use our iTero Element scanner to scan each of your teeth and the layout of your gums and mouth.
Next, your orthodontist will use this information to create your customized treatment plan. This will include how each tooth needs to be moved to get it in the best possible position.
Your orthodontist will decide how to place the brackets based on this information. Once we attach your brackets, Dr. Griffin or Dr. Errera will insert the wire. Bends in the wire will provide different types of pressure on different teeth.
Metal braces are cost-effective because they don’t require some of the more complex technology or expensive equipment that newer treatments do. The strength, durability, and affordability of traditional metal braces keep them the top treatment for orthodontic patients in Middleburg, Warrenton, and Culpeper, year after year!

Fixed Appliances Vs.
At Griffin & Errera Orthodontics, we believe you should be fully educated when it comes to your treatment. It’s helpful for patients in Middleburg, Warrenton, and Culpeper, to know the difference between fixed and removable appliances.
When they prescribe a removable appliance like Invisalign’s clear aligner system, you’ll wear the trays for most of the day, but you can take them out of your mouth to eat, brush, and floss.
Besides the obvious differences, Griffin & Errera Orthodontics uses Invisalign aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems and fixed appliances for comprehensive and serious treatment.
