Types of Braces

At our office we use three different types of braces, Damon metal braces, Damon “Clear” braces, Orthoclassic H4 Braces and Invisalign.

Metal braces are the most common type. These braces are made of high-grade stainless steel. They are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive than braces used in the past.

“Clear” brackets are made of clear plastic. They are more popular than metal brackets, especially  among adult patients due to their cosmetic appearance. The only drawbacks to these brackets is that they are more fragile and elastic chains, when used, can discolor between orthodontic visits.

The Invisalign System is a series of clear overlay templates called aligners that have been generated by computer simulation to gradually move the teeth. Ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign System.
