Types of Braces

Invisalign®

invisalignThe 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 and some teenagers with certain orthodontic bite problems. Ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign system.

Metal Braces

Ceramic Braces

Damon® Brackets

damonDamon braces were invented by Dr. Dwight Damon. The Damon bracket utilizes “sliding-door” technology, known as self-ligation, which 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.
