Invisalign vs. Traditional Braces
February 5, 2016
For years, the words orthodontist or orthodontics brought to mind metallic brackets and wires, years of discomfort and other less than ideal treatment options. While traditional metal braces are time tested and predictable, they are also not very cosmetically appealing. At McDougal and Richards Dentistry, we offer an
alternative: Invisalign. This orthodontic treatment uses clear, plastic alignment trays to gradually shift teeth to their ideal position. This treatment option has significantly advanced over the past few decades, and now, effectively corrects a number of more advanced concerns previously only treatable with traditional braces. If you’re ready to transform your smile, contact our Richardson, TX team today.
