Millions of people would like to experience better, straighter smiles. The problem is traditional orthodontic treatment places metal brackets and wires onto teeth. In our image-conscious society, this form of treatment is no longer desirable, even by teens. At Smile Brighter Willoughby Hills, we provide alternatives to conventional orthodontic treatment that produce satisfying results for people of all ages.
ClearCorrect a clear choice with most teens and adults seeking non-metal options for teeth straightening, we are excited to offer the ClearCorrect system of braces. This method is comfortable, effective, and, most of all, discreet. Using ClearCorrect, you can experience your most attractive smile without the need for cumbersome metal braces.
The process is simple, beginning with a consultation and evaluation that includes x-rays, photos, and impressions. If ClearCorrect is chosen as the most suitable orthodontic alternative, a prescription is sent along with molds of your teeth to a specialized laboratory, where clear, plastic aligner trays are computer crafted using innovative technology. One of the benefits of this particular system is that you are sent a set of aligners made to fit your teeth as they currently sit. This allows you to get used to wearing aligners without the added pressure to move teeth.

Ortho-Tain System For Kids Introduced By Dr. Michael Stern
Dr. Michael Stern of Smile Brighter Willoughby Hills, OH says he has been using Ortho-tain system for over twenty years and this affordable technique gives your kid amazing results than the regular braces.
What is Ortho-Tain® in orthodontics?
For about 20 years I have been using the system called Ortho-Tain® which was invented by an orthodontist. Basically, he developed a system of appliances that sort of look like an athletic mouth guard.
How old should a patient be and what does it correct?
When they are worn by the child as young as 5 years old at night they can correct a lot of potential issues such as crowding, kids with a huge overbite, in other words, their lower jaw is underdeveloped.
We can correct that if the child wears the appliance just while sleeping and you can correct this in as little as 3 months in little kids.
What are the benefits of Ortho-Tain® over regular orthodontics?
The interesting thing about this is that the appliances are much more expensive than conventional orthodontics because things are realigned while the child is growing and also can be continued while the baby teeth are being shed and new teeth come in.
The result is a bite that is stable and needs a lot less concern about retention as opposed to regular orthodontics.
Is Ortho-Tain® affordable?
The cost factor for this would be one third to one half as much as regular braces. And the child has to buy into this if they are going to wear it at night.
Generally, that is not a problem, and with more complicated cases of kids who are a little older like 7, 8 or 9 they may wear the appliance at night and they need to wear it maybe a couple of hours during the day while doing a couple of jaw exercises.
How effective is it Ortho-Tain®?
What we are excited about is when it works it works about 90% of the time you see the results going on month to month absolutely amazing.
