Invisalign® and Clear Braces
Invisalign® Braces – How They Work
The Invisalign® system uses clear, custom made aligner trays that gently apply pressure on misaligned teeth to gradually realign them. As the shape of your teeth changes, you’ll get new aligner trays, usually about every two weeks.
Invisalign® Braces – What’s the Cost?
The cost of your Invisalign® treatment will be specific to your needs. It will depend, in large part, on the degree of misalignment, the length of time that will be needed for the treatment, and your insurance coverage. Call our office in San Marcos for more information and to schedule your free consultation.
Invisalign® and Clear Braces – What’s the Difference?
Clear braces are very similar to metal braces in the way they function, except they’re significantly less visible. The Invisalign® system, however, uses clear custom made aligner trays to gently realign the teeth and you’ll usually receive a new aligner tray about every two weeks.
Clear Braces – How Do They Work?
Clear braces use a wire-and-bracket system very similar to that of metal braces to gently realign the teeth. Clear braces are significantly less visible than metal braces and are often used by those who are unable to use the Invisalign® system due to the complexity of their dental issues. Our office in San Marcos will be happy to answer all your questions about clear braces or any other system.
Clear Braces – How Much Do They Cost?
Clear braces are more expensive than metal braces but most patients feel that the improvement in aesthetics is worth the additional expense. The cost of your clear braces will depend on the amount of work you need done and your insurance coverage. Call us in San Marcos for more information.
Clear Braces vs Metal Braces – Which is Better?
Clear braces and metal braces work in a very similar manner but clear braces are much less visible while metal braces are less expensive.
Metal, Ceramic, And Self-ligating Braces
Metal Braces – How Do They Work?
Metal braces use a combination of wires and brackets to guide misaligned teeth back into proper alignment. They’re the least expensive type of braces and the duration of treatment is usually shorter. Call our office in San Marcos to schedule a free consultation about metal braces or Invisalign®.
Metal Braces – How Much Do They Cost?
Metal braces are usually less expensive than clear braces or Invisalign®, but the cost of your metal braces will depend on the difficulty of your treatment and your insurance coverage. Your dentist will give you a detailed cost estimate during your free consultation at our office in San Marcos.
Metal Braces vs. Other Options for Braces?
Metal braces are an excellent option for misaligned teeth but some patients prefer clear braces, ceramic braces, or Invisalign®. Cost usually plays a factor since the other options are usually more expensive. Metal braces are effective and usually have a shorter treatment time. Call our office in San Marcos if you have more questions about the cost and effectiveness of metal braces.
Self-Ligating Brackets – How Do They Work?
Self-ligating braces use a small, spring-loaded device to automatically adjust the pressure on the teeth as they are gradually encouraged to proper alignment. Traditional metal braces use elastic bands, which can cause discomfort, but self-ligating braces lessen the discomfort. Your dentist will advise you if self-ligating braces would be appropriate for your needs.
Self-Ligating Braces – What’s the Cost?
The cost of your self-ligating braces will depend on the degree of misalignment, any other orthodontic issues you may have, and your insurance coverage. Your dentist will provide you with a cost breakdown during your consultation in our office in San Marcos.

Phase 1 Orthodontics – How Long Does It Take?
Phase 1 orthodontics is an intervention treatment for children between the ages of 6 and 10. We recommend that children who have orthodontic issues be seen by age 7 so that preventive measures can be taken. Otherwise, the child’s problem can escalate significantly.

Phase 1 vs. Phase 2 Orthodontics
Phase 1 orthodontic treatment begins before all the permanent teeth have appeared and is intended to minimize the need for orthodontics as the child grows older. Phase 2 usually occurs between the ages of 11 and 13 after most of the permanent teeth have erupted.
