Orthodontic Options Offered by Fort Bend Dental
Braces are an excellent way to treat almost any orthodontic issue including overbites, underbites, gaps, and crooked teeth. They consist of metal brackets attached to the front surfaces of your teeth. The brackets are connected by a wire that applies gentle tension in order to straighten teeth over time. Our practice prefers Edgewise brackets, which are a more comfortable and less visible version of old-fashioned, bulky metal braces.
This popular system discreetly straightens a patient's teeth using a prescribed number of clear, customized, nearly invisible plastic aligners. Unlike fixed traditional metal braces, Invisalign aligners can be removed when you eat, brush and floss your teeth, and perform certain physical activities. If the treatment plan is followed, Invisalign is an effective means of treating cases of mild to moderate dental misalignment. Patients must commit to wearing the aligners from 20 to 22 hours a day. Treatment can be completed in as little as six months or more than a year, depending on your case.
These clear aligners also straighten teeth discreetly with removable plastic aligners. A patented software is used to create the SureSmile treatment plan. Each aligner is crafted from Essix ACE® Plastic, a leader in the dental plastics industry. Your Fort Bend Dental professional can discuss the differences between SureSmile and Invisalign during your consultation. Treatment time is about the same time as Invisalign.
For complex misalignment cases, our dentists offer a combination of clear aligner therapy and Edgewise braces. Once clear aligners have shifted a patient's teeth sufficiently, braces are applied to finish treatment in a shorter amount of time. And the best part is it can all be done here so you don't have to make appointments with an orthodontist.

Costs and Financing
The total costs of orthodontic treatment vary with the type you choose, so keep that in mind when weighing your options.
For instance, in the case of clear aligners, the number of trays you will need to achieve your final results will impact the final price.
On average, the cost of treatment is between $4,000-$5,500 and is usually covered at least partially by insurance. Because we do not need to refer you to outside orthodontists, our dentists can also save you money that you would have spent scheduling an additional orthodontics appointment.
Pricing can be discussed during your consultation, so you can find the best option for your goals, timeline, and finances.
If any out-of-pocket costs arise, Fort Bend Dental offers affordable monthly financing through CareCredit®, and our own money-saving membership payment plan.
