Invisalign® and Clear Braces
How Do Invisalign® Trays Work?
Each clear plastic tray, called an aligner, gradually pushes your teeth into a straighter position. You’ll receive a new tray every two weeks, which you’ll wear for 22 hours a day. You may take the aligner out to brush your teeth and to eat.
What Will an Invisalign Treatment Cost?
Your Invisalign cost is determined by the extent of your teeth’s misalignment. Call to arrange a consultation and our dentist can talk to you about your anticipated cost after assessing your teeth. We strive to keep our fees as affordable as possible.
Which Is Better, Invisalign or Clear Braces?
