Invisalign® and Clear Braces
How Do Invisalign® Aligners Work?
The clear, custom-made trays slowly move teeth to match the tray; therefore, you will need new aligner trays twice a month to keep your teeth moving in the right direction. You’ll wear the aligners day and night, although you can remove the aligner to eat and to brush your teeth.
What Is the Price for Invisalign?
Your Invisalign price will rely on the severity of your teeth’s misalignment. During your complimentary consultation, our dentist will explain what you can expect to pay for Invisalign treatment.
Invisalign vs. Clear Braces
Both Invisalign and clear braces are popular options with individuals who want to straighten their teeth unobtrusively. Braces are more effective for complex orthodontic issues, which our dentist will explain if you need extensive correction.
Do Clear Braces Work as Well as Metal Braces?
The end result, straight teeth, is the same. Clear braces can take more time to correct issues. However, their discreet presence may be worth the extra treatment time.
What Does it Cost to Get Clear Braces?
