Invisalign® and Clear Braces
How Can Invisalign® Move Teeth if it’s Removable?
You will leave the clear aligner trays in for 22 hours each day, taking them out only for meals and to brush your teeth. The aligners move teeth into position slowly and gently as your teeth adapt to the tray.
Does Invisalign Cost the Same for Everyone?
No, each patient has a unique degree of misalignment and will need a different number of alignment trays. Your dentist will let you know your anticipated Invisalign costs after examining your teeth.
Is Invisalign Comparable to Clear Braces?
Invisalign uses removable aligner trays to straighten teeth while clear braces rely on fixed brackets and wires. No one will notice your Invisalign aligner, but up close, clear braces are noticeable.
How Long Does it Take for Clear Braces to Straighten Teeth?
Clear braces can straighten teeth in six months; however, it could take up to two years depending on how crooked your teeth are when our dentist applies the braces. He or she will give you an estimated time frame.
What Do Clear Braces Cost in Valley Ranch?
Clear braces may cost more than metal braces, but if aesthetics are important to you, the extra cost will be worth it. Your treatment cost will depend on the extent of your misalignment.

What Do Self-Ligating Brackets Do?
Self-ligating brackets eliminate the need for any ligature (elastics or ties). The brackets are thinner than regular brackets, making them harder to detect.

It would depend on whether you wanted self-ligating brackets for metal or clear braces. Call our office to schedule a consultation. You can ask our dentist how much the brackets will cost in your case.
