Damon Systems Braces
The Damon System braces are a revolutionary breakthrough in orthodontic treatment. This system has a unique “sliding door” bracket that allows the wire to slide more freely so your teeth will move more comfortably during treatment. The Damon brackets are self-ligating so you will feel less pressure on your teeth and have an overall more comfortable treatment experience.
You will get great comfort, style, efficiency and performance with the Damon System. The Damon Brace does not require the use of elastic or metal ties. That means there is less plaque build up and less difficulty keeping your teeth clean.
Invisalign uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners to straighten your teeth. No one can tell when you wear Invisalign, because it’s invisible. The aligners have no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.
The process is simple, an impression of your teeth is taken for the Insignia smile design lab. Sophisticated imaging software then creates a 3-D representation
of your bite while braces and wires are custom-fabricated with your exact prescription.
Insignia treatment is tailored to the individual patient. Each aspect is precisely calculated to affect tooth movement in the most optimal way, resulting in fewer office visits and exceptional comfort. And because treatment is 100% personalized, patients often see a reduction in the amount of time they would ordinarily wear braces.

The bands are the bands of metal that are cemented into place on the tooth. They provide a handle that is used to control each tooth.
Typically used to attach the rubber bands or elastics, the hooks are attachments that are used to apply force to the individual teeth or the archwire.
The archwire is the primary wire of the braces that fits within the brackets and provides the bulk of the pressure required to reposition the teeth. It also serves as a track for your teeth to move across.
Rubber bands are used to correct different types of bites. Also referred to as elastics, they are an essential component of braces.
The brackets are the attachments that carry the force of the archwire to your teeth. They are bonded directly onto the teeth.
The coil spring goes over the archwire and fits between the brackets. They are used to create space.
