Types of Braces

Metal Braces

colorMetal 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 Braces

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

Gold Braces

Damon® Brackets

damonDamon 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. Damon brackets do not require the use of elastic or steel ties. 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.

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