Types of Braces

Damon® System

damon.pngDamon® 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

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 and teen patients with certain orthodontic bite problems. Ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign® system.
