Would anyone know (about braces)

I've been wanting invisalign for a long time - but have been reading a LOT of horror stories about people who have used invisalign and am thinking maybe braces would be a better option after all. I wouldn't mind the clear ones.... does anyone who has had kids who have had them know the difference in cost between the clear and the metal braces?

And yes, when I find an ortho in my area and get an appointment I will ask them, and know if can vary to due what needs to be done and location, but thought I'd see if anyone knows offhand so I can kind of have an idea of what they'd cost.

  • My oldest son has been out of braces for a little over a year now. We had a choice of a variety of colors including clear. (The wires were silver tho) The color did not effect the price. Good luck :)

  • I haven't seen many wear the clear braces. I only wore the metal ones so I couldn't tell you.

  • My cousin has Envisline and she loves it. She works for an orthodontist. It is more for minor cases in adults. They are just starting to use it on teens.
