Types of Braces we Offer
The most common type of braces we use are metal braces. Today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable, more attractive and more durable.
The nickel-free braces we use are for our patients with nickel allergies or sensitivity.
The Damon Brackets we use utilize a ‘sliding door’ technology known as “self-ligation”. This allows the wire to slide back and forth within the bracket. There are no elastic or steel ties used with Damon braces which results in less friction and greater comfort.
Our clear braces or brackets are made of translucent ceramic-porcelain material that does not stain. These braces are popular among patients due to their cosmetic appeal.
Our gold plated braces are electroplated 24-karat gold metal braces. These attractive braces are another great alternative for patients who sensitive to nickel.
The Invisalign System is a series of clear overlay templates or aligners which gradually move the teeth. This system is available to patients with certain bite problems.
