Invisalign® and Clear Braces
How Can Invisalign Straighten Teeth Without Brackets?
Patients wear a series of plastic aligner trays that gradually shift teeth into a straighter position.
What Does Invisalign Typically Cost?
Your Invisalign cost will depend on the severity of the orthodontic issue that needs correcting. During your initial consultation, your dentist will determine if you are a good candidate for Invisalign and how much it will cost. Call today to arrange for your complimentary consultation.
What’s the Difference Between Invisalign and Metal Braces?
Braces have brackets, either metal or ceramic, that are glued to your teeth. Invisalign has removable aligner trays that you can take out when you wish to eat or brush your teeth. Braces move teeth faster than Invisalign; however, Invisalign is gentler on your teeth. One of our dentists will help you make this important decision.
How Do Clear Braces Correct Misalignments?
Clear braces correct misalignments just as conventional metal braces move teeth. Brackets are attached to each of your teeth, with a wire that connects them. Adjustments slowly move teeth into alignment.
What Is the Price for Clear Braces?
Your clear braces price is custom; it depends on the extent and the severity of your orthodontic issues. Our dentist can give you an estimate of the total cost after an examination.
Clear Braces vs. Metal Braces
If you have issues too complex for Invisalign, clear braces are an alternative that lets you straighten your teeth discreetly.
Metal and Ceramic Braces and Self-Ligating Brackets
Are Metal Braces Good for Straightening Teeth?
Perhaps not from an aesthetic perspective, but metal braces excel at straightening teeth quickly. The system of brackets and an archwire can treat a variety of orthodontic problems, including severe cases of misalignment.
What Determines My Cost for Metal Braces?
The severity of your orthodontic problem is a major determining factor. Call to schedule your consultation, where our dentist will assess your teeth and estimate your total cost.
How Do Metal Braces Compare to Invisalign?
Invisalign is quite different from metal braces as Invisalign does not use brackets or wires to correct teeth. Invisalign aligner trays are nearly invisible, while metal braces are evident. Metal braces do have one distinct advantage; they can correct many more orthodontic issues than Invisalign.
Are Braces with Self-ligating Brackets Easier to Wear?
Self-ligating brackets, which hold the archwire without ligatures, are not as large as traditional brackets. They are easier to get used to and easier to wear.
What Do Braces with Self-ligating Brackets Cost?
Our dentist will give you an estimate during your consultation, as you can have self-ligating brackets for metal or clear braces.

Does My Child Need Phase 1 Orthodontic Treatment?
We recommend that you bring your child in by age seven for an orthodontic screening. There are issues that are treated more easily at a younger age. Phase 1 work is completed before the permanent teeth have erupted in order to ensure the other teeth come in well.
What Will Phase 1 Orthodontic Work Cost?
If your child needs any Phase 1 orthodontic work, our dentist will explain the procedure, why it is important not to wait and the cost of the work.
How Does Phase 2 Orthodontic Treatment Differ from Phase 1?
Phase 2 orthodontic treatment treats a child’s adult teeth. These treatments vary based on the type of problems your child is facing. Treatments usually begin around ages 11-13.
