Invisalign® and Clear Braces
Invisalign®: What’s the Process?
With Invisalign®, you’ll be custom-fitted with a series of aligner trays. These clear trays help incrementally nudge your teeth into their desired position. To keep this progressive tooth movement going, you’ll receive a new set of trays every two weeks.
How Much Are Invisalign Clear Aligners?
Invisalign trays generally are affordable, but actual costs vary depending on the length and complexity of each patient’s treatment.
Pros and Cons: Invisalign or Clear Braces?
With clear braces, clear brackets are attached to your teeth, and clear or white small rubber bands are connected to the brackets. With Invisalign, you’ll use a series of removable clear aligner trays. Braces usually require fewer adjustments than Invisalign, but both braces and Invisalign are good treatment options for adults.
What Do Clear Braces Do?
Clear braces move teeth gradually, using white or clear brackets and wires.
Are the Costs for Clear Braces High?
If you’re wondering what your clear braces will cost, talk to your dentist in Euless. Like most braces, your costs depend on the severity of your alignment issues.
Clear Braces vs. Traditional Metal Braces?
Usually, clear braces are more expensive than metal braces. Metal braces often offer a shorter treatment time, while clear braces offer the benefit of a more discreet appearance.
Metal, Ceramic Braces, and Self-Ligating Brackets
What’s Involved in Treatment with Metal Braces?
Your dentist in Euless will apply metal brackets and wires to your teeth, using pressure to progressively move your teeth into position. You’ll visit our office regularly for check-ups and slight adjustments to ensure your alignment progresses.
What’s the Average Cost for Metal Braces?
Several factors go into determining the cost of metal braces, including the amount of correction your teeth need to reach the desired position. Insurance may also reduce the total cost.
Effectiveness: Metal Braces versus Invisalign?
Metal braces vs Invisalign can be a tough choice for some. Generally, metal braces work more quickly and are less expensive. Invisalign treatment usually takes longer, but the alignment trays are removable and less visible to others while in use.
What’s Involved in Self-Ligating Brackets?
Whereas typical metal braces use elastic bands, self-ligating brackets have a spring-loaded door that holds your archwire in place. This system creates less friction and requires less force to move teeth.
What Is the Average Cost of Self-Ligating Brackets?
The cost of self-ligating brackets varies a bit, but they are usually more expensive than traditional brackets. Call our office to schedule a consultation for more information.

Options: Orthodontist versus Pediatric Dentist?
Orthodontists and pediatric dentists have compñeted similar education tracks and licensing procedures, but orthodontists continue training for two to three years to master the intricacies of straightening teeth. Orthodontists usually are necessary if you have significant dental problems, such as overcrowding, crooked teeth, overbites and underbites.
What Happens During Orthodontic Treatment, Phase 1?
Phase 1 orthodontic treatment for children corrects existing issues and problems with your child’s jaw or bite that may escalate quickly if not addressed. Appliances such as braces or palate expanders may be used, and treatment may last from 6 to 12 months.
What Will Phase 1 Orthodontics Cost Me?
Costs for Phase 1 orthodontic treatments range widely according to the specific needs of the child and the treatments required. An examination of your child’s mouth should be completed starting at age 7 to evaluate if treatment is needed.
What’s the Process for Phase 1 versus Phase 2 Orthodontics?
If your child has severe or moderate issues developing, early interceptive treatment is recommended. Phase 1 orthodontic treatment is usually administered to kids between ages 6-10. Follow-up treatment in the form of Phase 2 orthodontic treatment often occurs between ages 11-13, when most permanent teeth have erupted.
