Invisalign® and Clear Braces
How Do Invisalign Braces Work?
Invisalign works in a manner similar to metal braces: By placing gentle pressure on the teeth, the alignment of the teeth gradually changes to achieve the desired result. Since the alignment of the teeth is continually changing, you’ll need new aligners every two weeks.

What’s the Difference Between Invisalign® and Clear Braces?
Clear braces use brackets and wires like traditional metal braces use. The Invisalign® procedure uses clear aligner trays that are less noticeable than clear braces. The trays can also be removed.

Clear braces, however, are significantly less noticeable than their metal counterparts. Call our office in Dallas for more information or if you have additional questions.

How Do Metal Braces Work?
Metal braces use wires and brackets to apply gentle pressure on the teeth. This encourages the teeth to move into the desired alignment.
What Do Metal Braces Cost?
The cost of metal braces will depend on the patient’s dental health, how much alignment is needed, insurance coverage, if any, and more. Usually, metal braces are less expensive than other types of braces. Call our office in Dallas today for more information on metal braces or to schedule an appointment.
Metal Braces vs. Other Orthodontic Options?
Although metal braces are more visible than other types of braces, they may work more quickly, depending on the individual and his or her dental issues. Your dentist will recommend the best option for braces for your situation.
How Do Self-Ligating Brackets Work?
Self-ligating braces can work more effectively and with less discomfort than traditional braces. Self-ligating braces use a spring-loaded device to hold the archwire in place rather than the elastic bands that traditional braces use.
What’s the Cost of Self-Ligating Braces?
Self-ligating braces can cost more than traditional braces but the comfort level can make the additional cost worthwhile. Call our office in Dallas for an appointment and your dentist can recommend the best type of braces during your no-cost, no-obligation consultation.

Phase 1 orthodontic treatment should begin between the ages of 6 and 10 before all the child’s permanent teeth are in.

Phase 2 orthodontics usually begins between the ages of 11 and 13 and involves only the permanent teeth.
