    Traditional Braces

    Still the most popular and can be personalized using our colored elastic ligatures (“O’s”), which hold the wire into the braces.

    Clear Esthetic Braces

    Preferred by adult patients and older teens because they are less obvious than traditional metal braces!

    Upper and lower jaws often develop at differing rates. Growth modification appliances change the position, shape, length or width of the jawbone(s) to create a proper bite.

    I’ve been to Lakeshore both pre & post (during?) COVID. They did a great job of distancing and protecting all from COVID. Dr Charmley is always smiling and upbeat as he bounces between patients – whether his messages scolds or commends…

    I took my two boys there for consultations for braces. My youngest was very nervous, he ended up leaving sad that he was not ready to start the process. They made it fun and easy! I would recommend them to anyone!

    Our visit to Lakeshore Orthodontics was great!  They took many precautions to help prevent the spread of Covid19 such as taking our temperature in the parking look, practicing social distancing, installing plexiglass between patient chairs, using masks, gloves, etc…

    As a dentist, it is my responsibility to make sure that the specialist I refer to are of the highest quality. That is why refer the majority of my patients needing orthodontics to Lakeshore Orthodontics. It is also why my own children see Dr. Charnley.
