Type of Braces


feature_damon.jpgDamon® 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. Damon® braces often reduce both treatment time and the number of adjustments that are usually performed. In addition to greater comfort, self-ligating braces are easier to brush and keep clean.  This contributes to greater health, happiness and physical attractiveness for the duration of patient treatment.


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 both adult and teenage patients.
