Braces

Braces are commonly used to align the teeth. Although there are several types of braces, they all work in a similar way. This brief guide will educate you on the different kinds of braces available today.

When one thinks of braces, almost automatically we go to the large metal pieces that fit over our teeth. Thankfully, modern dental technology has made these so they are slightly less visible. Our dentist will consult with you if these are the right course of action for you.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic braces are similar to traditional metal braces in design and size. However, instead of metal brackets and wires, they feature clear brackets that blend in better with teeth. Some even have tooth-colored wires as well. Ceramic braces are well suited for many patients who do not have severe misalignments. Your orthodontist will let you know if you're a good candidate after they examine your teeth.

Damon Braces

When it comes to orthodontic treatment, Damon Braces are clinically proven to reduce your time wearing braces as well as reduce your discomfort. Its uniquely designed self-ligating system allows the brackets and wires to move freely without the traditional binding attachment of traditional braces. Damon braces are also more aesthetically pleasing due to the innovative design removing the need for elastic ligatures, reducing the bracket size.

When considering your orthodontic treatment, Damon Braces gives you the option for a reduced treatment time, fewer appointments and a more pleasing smile.  

Myobrace

The Myobrace System assists in straightening teeth and jaws without metal braces. This treatment addresses poor oral habits using myofunctional orthodontic techniques. A series of removable dental appliances apply light force to align the teeth. These appliances are worn for just one to two hours a day and overnight while sleeping. Myobrace eliminates the need to wear uncomfortable dental appliances 24 hours a day and corrects poor oral habits that traditional braces do not address. 

The Myobrace treatment is best for children ages 5-15, the optimal range being 6-10 years old. While it is suitable for a wide range of orthodontic issues, it is most effective in early childhood while the mouth is still developing.
