Types of Braces

 

 

 

Insignia

We are proud to offer Insignia braces, a revolutionary custom approach to orthodontics. Braces are generally manufactured for a wide range of patients; however, your smile is just like your fingerprints – there’s not another one like it!

We believe your braces should be custom-tailored to your teeth, your smile and your treatment plan. With the use of 3-D imaging, Insignia can create precision brackets and wires to better suit your needs, resulting in more comfort and a shorter treatment time for our patients.

We are certified to use Insignia’s cutting-edge technology. Contact us for more information on this new wave of technology.

Damon® Brackets

Damon® braces were invented by Dr. Dwight Damon. The Damon® bracket utilizes (sliding-door) technology known as "self-ligation" that allows the wire to slide back and forth within the bracket.

No elastic or steel ties are used with Damon® brackets. This technology creates less friction and results in greater comfort for the patient. In addition, Damon® braces often reduce both treatment time and the number of adjustments that are usually performed.

Damon® Clear Brackets


Introducing Damon® Clear – the passive self-ligating bracket whose beauty is more than skin deep. Damon® Clear combines the look and comfort image-conscious patients demand with the strength and functionality discriminating clinicians need. Validated by multi-site in vivo studies and third-party university research, Damon® Clear is more than meets the eye.

Damon® Q Brackets


In an effort to provide our patients with the very latest in orthodontics, we are proud to offer new Damon® Q braces: the all-new, all-metal self-ligating braces system that has gone above and beyond to increase patient comfort and reduce overall treatment time while straightening your teeth.

Damon Q represents the latest advances to the revolutionary Damon self-ligating braces system, featuring brackets which are made entirely of high-grade stainless steel, making them strong and extremely durable. The brackets also have smoother, more rounded corners to help provide greater comfort for the patient and to appear even less noticeable than normal Damon braces! Damon Q braces also feature removable positioning gauges to help ensure your orthodontist places the brackets in the perfect position to give you a great-looking smile!

InvisalignInvisalign®

The Invisalign® System is a series of clear overlay templates—called aligners—that have been generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth. This system is available to adult patients with certain orthodontic bite problems. Ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign® system.

Invisalign Teen

Now teens don’t have to worry about embarrassing metal braces in their yearbook photos or Facebook profiles – introducing Invisalign® Teen! Invisalign Teen is the clear way to straighten teeth without metal braces, using aligners. Aligners are removable and virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing; and you can still eat and drink what you want. Also, you can brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth; and there are no wires, metal or brackets to cause mouth abrasions.

We went to leading orthodontists, parents and teens themselves to custom-design an Invisalign system just right for the dental needs of teenagers. With blue-to-clear color-changing aligners to show how long each aligner has been worn, six free replacement aligners in case some are lost or broken, and other changes designed to accommodate growing mouths, InvisalignTeen is the perfect teeth-straightening system for today’s teens’ busy lifestyles!

OrthoCAD

We utilize the most state-of-the-art technology available, including OrthoCAD, to provide us with extremely precise digital models of patients’ teeth, so we can make an accurate diagnosis and create a personalized treatment plan that guarantees optimum results.

First, impressions will be made of your teeth. Then, we will use the OrthoCAD technology to create virtual models that we are able to store electronically, making them more easily accessible for review anywhere and at anytime. With this convenience and the ability to use a wide range of computer diagnostic tools to manipulate your virtual 3-D model to create the most effective treatment approach, this digital method has proven far more effective than the plaster models once used.

We believe firmly in the importance of patient education, and, with OrthoCAD, we are able to keep you thoroughly informed of your treatment options and progress by allowing you to review your virtual 3-D models on a computer screen in our office.

This is just one of the ways we strive to stay on the cutting-edge of the latest technological advancements in the orthodontic field. For more information about OrthoCAD, please contact us.
