Invisalign® and Clear Braces
How Long Is the Invisalign® Process?
With Invisalign®, you will receive a new, inconspicuous aligner tray every two weeks. Your treatment could last from nine months to 18 months depending on how far the aligners need to move your teeth into alignment.
How Much Does Invisalign Cost in Cinco Ranch?
After your consultation, our dentist can give you an estimate of your Invisalign cost, since your fee depends on the amount of correction you will need.
Is Invisalign Superior to Clear Braces?
The answer would depend on what is important to you. Clear braces straighten your teeth faster than Invisalign, but they are more evident.
Do Clear Braces Have Clear Brackets?
Yes, clear braces have ceramic brackets instead of metal brackets. There may be white or frosted wires available as well.
Do Clear Braces Have the Same Cost as Metal Braces?
Clear braces cost slightly more because of the bracket material. If you are interested in straightening your teeth discreetly, call our office to book your consultation. Our dentist can assess your teeth and then give you an estimated cost.
What Are the Differences Between Clear Braces and Invisalign?
With clear braces, people will see the brackets and wire; however, they are not conspicuous. Invisalign’s transparent aligner trays are very difficult to detect. Additionally, clear braces are fixed and Invisalign is removable.
Metal and Ceramic Braces, and Self-Ligating Brackets
Are Metal Braces Good at Correcting Orthodontic Problems?
Metal braces are excellent at correcting almost all orthodontic issues, even severe issues. Additionally, metal braces are the strongest option; therefore, they offer the shortest treatment time.
What Affects My Cost for Metal Braces?
The severity of you orthodontic issue is the main factor that affects your cost for metal braces. Call to schedule your consultation and learn your anticipated cost.
Are Metal Braces Better for Children?
For our young patients, we recommend metal braces. While Invisalign may be an option, we wouldn’t recommend it. Children can easily lose the aligner trays, while metal braces are fixed and cannot get lost.
Are Self-Ligating Brackets More Comfortable?
Yes, because there are no ties or bands that can’t loosen between appointments. You will always feel the pressure on each tooth equally.
What Is the Price for Self-Ligating Brackets?
During your consultation, our dentist may suggest self-ligating brackets if you select braces. The price for self-ligating brackets will depend on whether you choose metal or clear braces. Contact us today to schedule a self-ligating brackets consultation.
