How Much Will My Consultation Cost?
At our dental care practice, initial consultations for braces or other orthodontic services are always free of charge for our existing patients.
Invisalign® and Clear Braces
How Will Invisalign® Work on My Teeth?
Unlike the traditional metal braces of the past, Invisalign® consists of a series of tightly-fitting, plastic trays that go over teeth and put pressure on them to align properly. These trays can be removed to eat, drink, floss, brush and care for teeth.
Are There Standard Costs for Invisalign®?
Invisalign® treatments typically cost somewhat more than traditional braces. The amount you will pay usually depends on the number of trays needed to achieve the perfect smile for you.
What Is Different About Invisalign®?
Traditional braces are permanently affixed to teeth and must be removed in your orthodontist’s office. Invisalign® provides much greater flexibility when it comes to brushing and eating, and the trays are much harder to spot than metal braces.
Why Choose Clear Braces?
For patients who want the fast results of regular braces without the obvious appearance of metal in their mouth, clear braces can bridge the gap between Invisalign® and metal braces to create a more attractive look. These alignment solutions work in the same manner as metal braces.
Are There Standard Costs for Clear Braces?
The increased cost of specialty materials will usually boost the price of clear braces over that of traditional metal options.
Which Is the Best Option: Clear Braces vs. Invisalign®
While both clear braces and Invisalign® trays can provide an improved appearance over that produced by metal braces, Invisalign® can be removed to ensure the greatest convenience for our patients. The choice will depend on your preferences and budget.
Metal and Ceramic Braces, and Self-ligating Brackets
Do Traditional Metal Braces Work?
Small brackets are attached to individual teeth and connected to a wire that puts pressure on teeth to move into the right position. This process typically takes between 18 months to two years.
Are There Standard Costs for Metal Braces?
Most metal braces are surprisingly affordable. Our office will work with you to ensure that you can afford the cost of your treatment.
Should I Choose Metal or Ceramic Braces?
Ceramic braces are less noticeable and offer significant cosmetic benefits over metal braces. Depending on your needs, you may want to upgrade to ceramic over metal braces.
Why Get Self-ligating Brackets?
Your orthodontist may suggest self-ligating braces. Self-ligating brackets can eliminate the need for elastic bands and can streamline the application and adjustment processes.
Are There Standard Costs for Self-Ligating Brackets?
Because of the complexity of their construction, self-ligating brackets typically cost more than traditional brackets and braces.
