At Lake Jackson Dental Care, we provide several options for braces, including traditional metal braces, ceramic braces, and clear braces. The clear braces we utilize are Invisalign, which have single-handedly revolutionized the way dentists straighten teeth and how patients view braces.
As the demand for braces have continued to increase over the decades, our dental office continues to provide more and more patients with the best options for straightening their teeth. Having straight teeth and a beautiful smile is a major source of confidence for people of all ages, especially patients who are of the elementary or high school age. The primary demographic for braces is teenagers. Studies have shown that the number of teenagers receiving braces has grown by 80 percent over the past thirty years. In fact, the earliest age people receive braces is now 7 years old.
The orthodontist at our dental office conducts thorough examinations of all of our dental patients in order to accurately prescribe the necessary braces. Each patient is different, therefore, some patients would be better suited for Invisalign than traditional metal or ceramic braces.
WHY CHOOSE INVISALIGN?
Many patients who choose Invisalign do so because they are able to wear braces and straighten their teeth without having to drastically change their appearance. Often, these patients are older than teenagers and are typically in college or have already started their careers. They wish to better their smiles without having to use metal or ceramic braces.
Patients, who do not require a major undertaking to straighten their teeth, should consider using Invisalign. These are typically worn by patients who only need minimal straightening or adjusting to their teeth.
Another positive from choosing these clear braces is that these can be removed during the day. The braces must be worn at least 22 hours in the day, but can be taken off to brush or to eat. This is a major contrast to traditional braces that must be worn indefinitely (approximately 24 months) without removal.
Invisalign braces are more expensive than traditional metal braces or ceramic braces. Our dental office, however, does accept most dental insurance plans, as well as Medicaid, and we also provide Care Credit to help with the payment process. Lake Jackson Dental Care works with every patient in regard to payment plans.
