Orthodontics FAQs

Who is a candidate for orthodontic treatment like braces or Clarity Aligners?


Both teenagers and adults are often candidates for orthodontic treatment, whether through braces or Clarity Aligners. Book a free consultation and we’ll help you determine which type of orthodontic treatment is best suited to your needs and lifestyle.

What dental issues can orthodontic treatment address?


Orthodontic treatments, such as braces and Clarity Aligners, can effectively correct a range of problems, including crooked teeth, crowding, spacing issues, underbites, and overbites.

How long does orthodontic treatment usually take?


The duration of orthodontic treatment varies based on the severity of the misalignment. Our Central Virginia orthodontics team finds that braces treatment generally lasts one to three years. Clarity Aligners treatment, on the other hand, can often be completed in one less time.

Are there dietary restrictions during orthodontic treatment?


Clarity Aligners are removable while eating, so there are no restrictions. For those with braces, caution is advised with foods that might stick to or damage brackets and wires. These include chewy candy, hard foods like nuts and apples, and crunchy items like popcorn and chips.

What factors influence the cost of orthodontic treatment?


The cost of orthodontic treatment depends on factors like the complexity of your case, treatment duration, specific requirements, and the type of treatment received. We offer savings plans and financial options to make orthodontic care affordable for you.

Dr. Jeff Beyer

Dr. Beyer grew up just outside Buffalo, NY, and attended Penn State University for his B.S. degree in Physiology. After earning his DDS degree (Magna Cum Laude) in 1995 from the VCU School of Dentistry, he enrolled in the Orthodontic residency program at VCU and completed his training in 1997. He remained at VCU for an additional two years in the Department of Orthodontics as a full-time Assistant Professor where he directed the dental student orthodontic clinic, maintained a private practice, and trained the orthodontic residents.

In 1999, Dr. Beyer founded Commonwealth Orthodontics and maintains a full-time private practice in Midlothian and Colonial Heights. He was one of the very first Orthodontists to be trained in Invisalign and offer it in private practice, and maintains active professional memberships in the American, Southern, and Virginia Associations of Orthodontists and the American Dental Association (ADA). Dr. Beyer also had the honor and privilege of serving as President of the Medical College of Virginia Orthodontic Education and Research Foundation in 2005. Dr. Beyer and Commonwealth Orthodontics have been selected as the Best Orthodontist in Richmond by the Richmond Times-Dispatch for multiple years.

Outside of the office, you won’t find Dr. Beyer around town much, as he and his family enjoy traveling around the United States in their RV. If you are ever looking for advice as to where to travel, chances are he has been there (or at least somewhere close!). He also enjoys collecting pinball machines and arcade games — and he even has machines from his collection in both offices for patients to enjoy.
