How Long Does It Take For Braces To Straighten Teeth?

Generally, braces can take about 1.5 to 3 years to straighten teeth, but this depends on how complex your dental situation is. Our orthodontists plan carefully and make regular adjustments to help you achieve the best results as quickly as possible. Diligently attending all your appointments and strictly following care tips are both important for your treatment’s success.

Comparing Invisalign To Braces

Deciding between Invisalign and braces is important. Invisalign is less noticeable, with clear, removable aligners. It’s the perfect solution for a teen who wants to subtly shift their smile in a way that doesn’t affect their eating habits or social life.

Braces, however, are great for many orthodontic problems. Some moderately to severely misaligned teeth can cause significant dental issues if they’re not treated properly through braces.

If you’re not sure which orthodontic treatment you’re eligible for, our orthodontists can help. We’ll guide you on the best choice for your dental needs and lifestyle.

Who Is Eligible For Invisalign?

Invisalign works well for some preteens, teens, and young adults wanting a less visible, teeth-straightening method. It’s good for fixing crowded teeth, gaps, and some bite issues. At your consultation, we’ll see if Invisalign fits your dental needs and goals.

You can play a part in preparing your child for his or her first visit to our office. Informing your child of the visit as an exciting experience for both of you can ease any hesitations. As a parent try to act relaxed, since your child may sense any anxiety on your part.

Explain to your child that the doctor will “count, brush, and maybe take pictures of their teeth”. We also ask that you assume the role of a silent observer. Cooperation and trust must be established directly between the doctor, staff, and your child and not through you. Your child may become confused if receiving instructions from multiple sources.

We recommend bringing your baby in for their first dental appointment by their first birthday, or within 6 months of their first tooth appearing (whichever comes first). During this appointment, we will examine your baby’s mouth to track their dental development and discuss age-appropriate dental care.

It’s easy to make appointments to visit our office online or over the phone. Rio Dental sees patients both for checkups and dental emergencies. Using our online scheduler, you can select the location and time slot that works best for you for either type of appointment. If you have any questions regarding our practice, or simply prefer to make your appointment with a live member of staff, please don’t hesitate to call!

Rio Dental Group accepts most PPO insurances. We recommend that new patients and returning patients with new insurance policies reach out to us before their appointment to confirm coverage. Our Fort Worth location also sees patients who are covered by Medicaid and CHIP programs.

We don’t like surprises, either! Our staff is prepared to discuss the cost of dental services before you undergo treatment so that you know what to expect in terms of fees. The cost of your services will be due at the end of your appointment. Our office accepts payment by cash, credit card, or check.

Rio Dental Group allows patients to pay with their CareCredit card. CareCredit is a healthcare credit card designed to cover out-of-pocket costs at over 225,000 providers nationwide. After leaving the office, card holders will be able to make convenient monthly payments towards their balance. To learn more, visit the CareCredit website.
