Types of Braces


Insignia™: Insignia technology uses highly sophisticated 3-D software to manufacture custom brackets specific for each individual patient. This 3-D software allows our doctors to simulate final outcomes prior to the start of treatment.  Brackets are customized to individual teeth. It’s a precise, start-to-finish process delivering maximum clinical and practice efficiency.  Ask our doctors if this treatment option is right for you!

Insignia Braces

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. Click here to learn more.

Metal: Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.

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.

Invisalign: The Invisalign (trademark symbol) 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.

Acceledent: Exciting new orthodontic product has been added to our Practice!  AcceleDent is designed to shorten orthodontic treatment time.  Watch this video and ask the Doctors if AcceleDent is right for you!
