If you are looking for an experienced, compassionate orthodontist for you or your child, we have good news: you’ve come to the right place at Clear Choice Orthodontics! Our award-winning specialist, Dr. McLendon, offers a variety of treatments for children and adults, including braces in Houston, TX, to help you achieve your smile goals and enhance your self-esteem!
According to The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), all children should see an orthodontist by the age of seven as this is the age when bite issues become noticeable as permanent, adult teeth begin to erupt.
With an evaluation at this age, some problems can be caught and treated early including:
- Excessive tooth crowding
- Insufficient jaw space for permanent teeth
- Overly fast or slow growth of the upper or lower jaw
- An upper or lower jaw that is too wide, too narrow, or crooked
- Presence of oral habits that can cause tooth misalignment and other problems, such as finger and thumb sucking
At Clear Choice Orthodontic Associates, we will never recommend unnecessary orthodontic care and treatment for your child. If your child is able to wait for treatment until he or she is older, then that is what we will tell you – and that is what we tell most patients who come in for their child’s initial evaluation at age seven.
Dr. McLendon and his orthodontic team offer the most advanced braces for children and adults, including low friction metal braces, Invisalign, and clear braces. We can even help you achieve your confident smile faster with accelerated treatment.
Low Friction Metal Braces - Synergy low friction braces offer less friction between the brackets and the archwire that connects them, resulting in faster tooth movement and shorter overall treatment. Our orthodontist will have better control over the movement of your individual teeth, leading to more precise tooth movement, especially in the finishing stages of your treatment.
Invisalign and Invisalign Teen - Clear Choice Orthodontic Associates has been recognized as a world leader for Invisalign, and in fact, is one of the top 5 Invisalign providers worldwide! Custom-made plastic aligner trays are utilized to help move your teeth to their desired position. Benefits include virtual invisibility, comfort from no wires or brackets, and convenience – they are removable so they are easy to clean, brush, and floss. You also won’t be on any diet restrictions since you can remove them when you eat. You’ll also enjoy fewer orthodontic visits.
Clear Ceramic Braces - Clear monocrystalline braces offer our patients the look they want, with all of the functionality of traditional metal braces. Their comfortable, sculptured design and attractive translucent appearance help provide the self-confidence that comes from wearing braces that look as good as they perform.
