Invisalign® and Clear Braces
How Can Invisalign® Straighten Teeth?
When you choose Invisalign, you’ll wear a series of custom-made clear aligner trays. These trays place gentle pressure on your teeth, slowly moving them into alignment over time.
What is the Cost of Invisalign®?
How much Invisalign costs depends on the length of treatment and the complexity of your spacing, crowding, or bite issues. We’ll provide a cost estimate during your Invisalign consultation.
Getting Invisalign® vs. Clear Braces
If you are deciding between Invisalign and clear braces, know that both methods effectively straighten teeth. However, clear braces may be better for those with complex cases who still desire a discreet look.
Are Clear Braces the Same as Metal Braces?
Clear braces work similarly to metal braces – both options use an archwire and bracket system to align teeth. However, with clear braces, the mechanisms are less noticeable to others.
Where Can I Get Affordable Clear Braces?
At our office, we offer affordable clear braces to patients with orthodontic issues. The complexity of your case, your insurance, and your age will factor into the total clear braces cost.
Should I Choose Clear Braces or Metal Braces?
Metal braces typically are less costly than other orthodontic options; however, they do not offer a discreet look. If you are interested in straightening your teeth with clear braces or Invisalign, contact our office today.
Metal, Ceramic and Self-Ligating Braces
How Do Traditional Braces Work?
Traditional metal braces use brackets and an archwire, which are attached by an orthodontist. As the braces are adjusted, your teeth will shift into the desired position.
What Will Metal Braces Cost?
Metal braces are an affordable option for straightening teeth. After assessing your teeth, our dentist will provide an outline of the total cost.
Metal vs. Ceramic Braces
Appearance usually is a factor when choosing between metal and ceramic braces. Ceramic braces can be colored to match your teeth; however, metal braces will be visible when you speak.
How Do Self-Ligating Braces Align Teeth?
With metal braces, elastics are used to hold the archwire in place. Self-ligating braces are a bit different – instead of elastics, a small spring-loaded door is used. Treatment may be shorter and less uncomfortable with this type of braces.
What Determines the Self-Ligating Braces Cost?
Self-ligating braces tend to be more expensive than traditional metal braces. How long you’ll require braces and your insurance will determine the final charges.
Orthodontics, Phase 1
Where Can I Find a Local Orthodontist?
Don’t let misaligned teeth affect your confidence – instead, contact our office for treatment. Our dentists will examine your smile and recommend the braces option that meets your needs.
How Much Does Getting Braces Cost?
The severity of your crowding, spacing, or bite issues will factor into the orthodontics cost. The type of braces you choose and the materials used to create them will also be considered.
Dentist vs. Orthodontist: Which One Should I See?
Complex alignment cases usually should be treated by an orthodontist who specializes in the movement of teeth. However, mild to moderate alignment problems can sometimes be treated by a general dentist.
Will Phase 1 Orthodontics Take a Long Time?
It typically takes six months to a year for children to complete Phase 1 orthodontics. A retainer usually is required after treatment.
What Does Phase 1 Treatment Cost?
The complexity of your child’s orthodontic case will determine the Phase 1 costs. Visit our office for a consultation after your child reaches 7 years old.
What’s the Difference Between Phase 1 and Phase 2 Treatment?
Phase 1 orthodontic treatment is designed for children between ages six and 10. On the other hand, Phase 2 treatment is ideal for older children between ages 11 and 13.
