Types of Braces

Metal Braces

Metal braces are most common. They are made of high grade stainless steel. Today’s braces are much smaller and more comfortable; therefore they are much more attractive. Most of the patients like to dress up the braces with different color elastics that can be changed at each appointment.

Damon® System

The Damon® bracket has sliding door technology known as “self-ligation” that allows the wire to slide back and forth within the bracket. This high technology brace utilizes less friction and light force for the treatment of severely crowded cases.

Damon® Clear Ceramic Braces

These translucent, crystal clear brackets are more esthetic than ever before. They are made from single crystal aluminum oxide and offer our patients (especially adults) an alternative to metal braces.

Invisalign®/Invisalign Teen®

Our adult and teen patients can now benefit from orthodontics without the use of braces. Invisalign® uses 3-D digital technology to straighten teeth by fabricating a series of custom-made, nearly invisible, removable appliances called aligners. Patients wear each set of aligners for 1-2 weeks. Their teeth gradually move until the desired result is achieved. For more information, visit our Invisalign page.
