Orthodontic treatment does more than make your smile look good. Braces also promote oral health by making it easier to brush and floss teeth, and a properly-aligned bite reduces the risk of complications related to tooth grinding and issues with the TMJ.

Breckinridge Dental Provides Top Orthodontic Treatment
Different smiles have different needs, and that’s why we offer two options for achieving the straighter, more beautiful teeth you want: traditional braces and Invisalign in Richardson TX.
Invisalign: Clear Braces for Adults and Teens
You can straighten your teeth discreetly with Invisalign, the clear braces system that works wonders for busy adults and older teens. Using a series of clear, plastic aligners to gradually shift teeth into the preferred position, Invisalign is the metal-free alternative to traditional braces.
The benefits of clear braces are numerous — just a few are listed below.
- Convenience: With removable braces, you don’t have to worry about difficulty cleaning your teeth, or limiting your diet. You can quickly slip them out before meals or to brush and floss.
- Efficiency: The average Invisalign treatment is about 12 months, while traditional braces can take 18 to 24 months. With Invisalign, you spend less time dealing with your braces, and more time flaunting your smile.
- Discreet: With clear, plastic aligners, chances are good that no one will ever notice you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment while you wear Invisalign.
Traditional Braces: A Trusted Approach
We’ve used traditional metal braces for ages for a reason — because they work. Braces offer the most reliable results, and they’re also usually the most affordable option in orthodontics. Teens love the fact that metal braces are customizable: they can choose different colors to reflect their budding personalities.
Acceledent Speeds Up Orthodontic Treatment
Whether you choose Invisalign or traditional braces to get the well-aligned bite you want, Acceledent is available to greatly reduce your treatment time. It’s a small, FDA-approved device that uses gentle vibrations to speed up the movement of your jaw bone — just about 20 minutes each day is all it takes to greatly accelerate your orthodontic treatment time.
