Types of Braces

Damon® Brackets

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.

Invisalign®

This system is available to adult patients with certain orthodontic bite problems. At your next appointment, ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign system.
