Invisalign® and Clear Braces
Invisalign – How Does it Work?
Invisalign uses almost invisible plastic trays to guide teeth slowly into position. Every two weeks, you’ll receive a new tray, which you can remove while you eat and when you brush your teeth.
The extent of correction needed will determine your Invisalign cost. Call for a consultation and one of our dentists can estimate your expected costs.
What’s the Difference between Invisalign and Clear (Ceramic) Braces?
Clear braces are slightly more noticeable than an Invisalign tray, but clear braces straighten teeth with more extensive alignment issues. Your dentist can help you decide which is better for you. Call today to schedule your no cost consultation.
How Do Clear Braces Work?
Clear braces work the same way as metal braces do, with translucent brackets and silver wires.
What Do Clear Braces Cost?
Your cost for clear braces will depend on the degree of severity of the orthodontic problems that you wish to correct. Only slightly more expensive than metal braces, clear braces also move teeth more quickly than tray aligners.
How Do Clear Braces Compare to Metal Braces?
Clear braces are less noticeable; many people are willing to pay a little more for unobtrusive braces. Clear braces work the same way as metal braces; however, they will take slightly longer to align your teeth as smaller adjustments have to be made.
Metal and Ceramic Braces, Self-Ligating Brackets
How Do Metal Braces Work?
Traditional metal braces work by applying continuous pressure to move teeth into the desired position.
How Much Do Metal Braces Cost?
Metal braces are the most economical choice, although your exact cost is determined by the degree of correction that you need. Dental insurance may cover metal braces. We recommend you check your policy to determine your exact coverage.
Are Metal Braces Better than Ceramic Braces?
Metal braces are not better or worse than ceramic braces, although you may need stronger metal braces for a severe correction issue. Otherwise, your choice depends on aesthetics and your budget.
How Do Self-Ligating Brackets Work?
Self-ligating brackets decrease the number of times you will see your dentist for adjustments because self-ligating brackets do not need rubber bands or metal ties. Instead, the device uses a small, spring-loaded door contraption that applies less pressure to the teeth.
How Much Are Self-Ligating Brackets?
Your dentist or orthodontist will discuss the cost with you during your complimentary consultation.

How Much Does Orthodontic Treatment Cost?
Orthodontic costs vary greatly among our patients. Your orthodontic treatment cost is determined by the amount of work that you need and how you choose to correct the misalignment. If you have dental insurance, this may affect your cost as well.
Should I See an Orthodontist or Dentist for Braces?
An orthodontist is a dentist who has completed several years of additional training in straightening teeth and correcting jaw misalignments. If you have severe alignment issues, we may recommend you to an orthodontist; otherwise, you are free to see whoever makes you feel comfortable.
What Are Phase 1 Orthodontics?
Phase 1 orthodontic procedures begin before a child has all of their permanent teeth, since the problems they have may negatively influence how permanent teeth emerge. We suggest you bring your child in by age seven for an orthodontic evaluation to make sure there are no issues with their baby teeth.
What Will Phase 1 Orthodontics Cost?
The cost for Phase 1 orthodontics varies, as all children are unique. An orthodontic consultation for young patients can determine if any treatment is needed.
What Is Phase 2 Orthodontics?
Phase 2 orthodontics treatments generally begin about age 11, or whenever most of the child’s permanent teeth have emerged. These treatments can help to straighten permanent teeth and ensure a lifetime of aligned teeth.
