Types of Braces
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.
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.

Insignia’s computerized digital orthodontic system uses hi-tech 3-D computer modeling along with the patient’s unique dental anatomy to manufacture brackets and wires made specifically for each patient. Patients get a digital 3-D preview of their new smile so they’ll know what results to expect before treatment even begins. And, because everything is custom-designed, Insignia braces are more comfortable than traditional braces and may require fewer office visits to get the best smile.
