Your Source for Conventional and Clear Braces in Chagrin Falls or Beachwood
Dr. Christopher Carson provides orthodontic services in two convenient locations. If you need braces in Beachwood or Chagrin Falls, you have a choice of traditional metal braces or clear aligner trays from ClearCorrect®.
Some of the dental problems braces can correct include:
Conventional Metal Braces
Metal braces consist of brackets that are attached to the individual teeth, with a wire that runs through them and allows for the necessary adjustments to be made. Conventional braces are recommended for anyone who wishes to have a straighter smile, especially for children and young teens. Dr. Carson performs all necessary adjustments and tracks your child’s progress during their routine orthodontic appointments.
When your child’s teeth have all emerged, typically around the age of 12, the jaw still retains most of its youthful elasticity so this is an ideal time to start straightening their teeth. Depending on your case, treatment usually lasts between 12 and 24 months.
Clear Braces in Beachwood or Chagrin Falls
Dr. Carson is an experienced and highly skilled provider of removable clear braces by ClearCorrect® which is important when receiving any type of orthodontic care. It is important to comply with the guidelines and wear the clear aligner trays for at least 22 hours per day, only removing them before eating, brushing, and flossing.
These clear braces are perfect for adults and older teens who may not have had a chance to straighten their teeth as a child. For those who wish to improve their smiles discreetly and effectively, this solution can correct most orthodontic issues. Detailed impressions and photos of your teeth, gum, and jaws are obtained and sent to the ClearCorrect lab. Within weeks you will be given a supply of trays that you will wear for two weeks at a time. Each tray gently moves your teeth closer to the proper position. Treatment time with clear braces is comparable to traditional braces.
Dental Health Group of Chagrin Provides Phase One Orthodontic Intervention
Our Chagrin Falls and Beachwood locations offer phase one orthodontic intervention for children who have teeth emerging at an angle, palates that are too small for all incoming teeth, or other orthodontic issues. This early treatment, performed while dental structures are still flexible, helps reduce the need for surgeries and more invasive orthodontic procedures later on. Dr. Carson tailors your child’s phase one interceptive treatment plan to meet the unique needs of your child’s smile and can include a variety of appliances. Space maintainers are often used in cases of early tooth loss and palatal expanders are used to widen the palate which creates more room in the jaw to accommodate incoming teeth. A short phase of braces and then retainers are a common solution with headgear being necessary in some cases.
