What Are The Different Types Of Braces Available?

How Come There Are So Many Different Choices For Braces?

In recent years, several important advances in orthodontic materials have taken place. Braces are much smaller and more efficient at moving teeth than in past years. The wires currently used are made of “high tech” alloys of nickel, titanium, copper, and cobalt. Some of the wires are even heat-activated (NASA originally engineered the nickel-titanium alloy to automatically activate antennae or solar panels of spacecraft orbiting into the sun’s rays). These fabulous new advances in technology allow the teeth to move continually in a more gentle fashion, which may dramatically reduce treatment time and the number of appointments necessary to straighten your teeth.

  • Clear Braces
    Clear ceramic braces are an aesthetic alternative for those who don’t want their braces to show as much. Clear braces move your teeth in exactly the same way as metal braces do. Like metal braces, they are extremely comfortable to wear and very efficient at moving teeth.
  • Damon System
    Since the introduction of the Damon™ System, Ormco has continually set the standards for self-ligation efficiency and quality. The all-new Damon once again redefines self-ligation with revolutionary clinical and aesthetic features that elevate the system to an unprecedented level.
  • Colored Braces
    Many patients enjoy having different colors placed on their braces as a means of personal expression and fun. Although the colors are not necessary they sure are loads of fun! Because it’s so simple to change the colors, feel free to swap them at every visit.
  • Invisalign® for Adults & Teens
    Invisalign is a discreet and effective solution for treating mild to moderate orthodontic concerns for teens and adults. Invisalign is ideal for treating orthodontic relapse or making cosmetic adjustments to the alignment of your smile.
  • Insignia Custom Designed Orthodontics
    Insignia is a fully interactive software and custom appliance system designed to give every patient a truly customized smile. It’s a precise, start-to-finish process delivering maximum clinical and practice efficiency.
