Types of Braces

Invisalign®

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.

Damon

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.

Inspire!

If you’re looking for a more aesthetically pleasing alternative to metal braces, Inspire! may be for you. Crafted from clear sapphire, these braces are also very strong and dependable. Check with your orthodontist to see if Inspire! is right for you.

Clarity™

Clarity braces feature a comfortable design with a translucent appearance. Made from a hard ceramic material, these braces won’t stain or discolor. With the same performance as metal braces, many patients are now choosing the clear option – Clarity!

Clear

Ceramic braces are made of translucent (clear) material. They are most popular with adult patients, due to their cosmetic appeal. The only drawback to ceramic brackets is that they are more fragile, and the elastic ties can discolor between orthodontic visits.

Mini Diamond

Mini Diamond braces are popular with patients of all ages. Noticeably smaller than regular metal braces, this appliance is more comfortable! They’re also efficient, yielding the same treatment time as traditional braces.
