Types of Braces

In-Ovation C

In-Ovation “C” is a self-ligating bracket, which allows more control during treatment than more traditional brackets. The difference is that they are smaller in size but also stronger and more efficient because they have a built-in clip that holds the archwires in place without the need for wire or elastic ties. This allows for greater overall attractiveness, increased comfort and a more reliable product. In-Ovation C braces provide patients with a beautiful, healthy smile in less time than traditional braces. Their special design also provides for greater comfort and fewer appointments. Plus their ceramic translucency helps to camouflage the appearance of braces allowing you to maintain the natural beauty of your smile.

In-Ovation R

In-Ovation “R” is a self-ligating bracket, which allows more control during treatment than more traditional brackets. The difference is that they are smaller in size but also stronger and more efficient because they have a built-in clip that holds the archwires in place without the need for wire or elastic ties. This allows for greater overall attractiveness and a more reliable product. The clip is also more comfortable than the standard wires because it does not gouge or stick to a patient’s cheek or gum line. Many patients report faster, more efficient results, which means less fuss and fewer treatment visits for you.

Invisalign®

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 adult patients with certain orthodontic bite problems. Ask us if you are a candidate for the Invisalign® system.

Inspire

Unlike most ceramic brackets for braces that have metal slots to aid motility, Inspire Ice has a smooth, strong surface created by a heat process and is not metal. This is beneficial to patients who have allergies to certain metals. Additionally, it is much more comfortable for patients. Other patients prefer these brackets because they are virtually invisible, as they are clear. This means that your doctor will not have to struggle to match your enamel shades, which will save you time and unnecessary visits to the doctor. Ormco, the creator of Inspire Ice, has been a staple in the orthodontic community for over 40 years. They promise faster results, greater comfort, easier treatment and more positive overall satisfaction. Patients can look and feel better from the treatment’s start to finish. 

Clarity Braces

Clarity™ braces feature a comfortable design with a translucent appearance. Many patients enjoy the combination of ceramic and metal because it is simultaneously attractive and sturdy. In fact, these braces are so sturdy that many doctors will recommend them to their patients who play sports. Also, because they have a semi-transparent color that will not stain, patients can proceed with necessary orthodontic treatment without having to feel self-conscious. In addition, Clarity braces’ smooth, rounded shape allows for greater patient comfort.

Mini-Diamond Braces

Mini Diamond braces are popular with patients of all ages. Noticeably smaller than regular metal braces, this appliance is more comfortable! They’re also efficient, yielding the same treatment time as traditional braces.
