Damon SystemWhat makes the Damon System different? Tie-less braces that don’t need to be “tightened” and are gentle to the teeth and tissues. High-technology, memory-shape wires that quickly move teeth and require fewer adjustment. A clinically proven treatment approach that aligns teeth and enhances facial aesthetics – usually without extractions or rapid palatal expanders. Fast treatment time and few office visits With the Damon® System, treatment time is typically shorter than with traditional braces. Shorter treatment time means fewer appointments and a beautiful smile…faster. You may be surprised at how fast. Beautiful faces and beautiful smiles The Damon® System employs a unique treatment philosophy that goes beyond straight teeth to create broad beautiful smiles.

InvisalignInvisalign® straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. It’s virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you’re straightening your teeth. Clearly Different The Invisalign System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with 100-year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your orthodontist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. Your first step is to visit our office to determine if Invisalign is right for you. After sending precise treatment instructions, Invisalign uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions in a sequence of finely calibrated aligners — as few as 12 or as many as 48. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually — week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then you’ll be smiling like you never have before! If you want to learn more about Invisalign and how it works, please visit the Invisalign Homepage. To ensure the best possible results, only an orthodontist who has been trained and certified by Align Technology can diagnose and treat using Invisalign. Invisalign is not intended for children and is not appropriate for every adult. Only an orthodontist can determine if this treatment is an effective option for you. To see if Invisalign can help you achieve the smile you’ve always wanted, contact us to make an appointment.
Invisalign TeenLet Invisalign® Teen help perfect your smile using clear aligners so your teenage memories can be captured with confidence. Invisalign Teen aligners are removable and virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing. You can still eat and drink what you want. Also, you can brush and floss normally to maintain healthy gums and teeth, and there are no wires, metal or brackets to cause mouth abrasions. We went to leading orthodontists, parents and teens themselves to custom-design an Invisalign system just right for the dental needs of teenagers. With a Blue Dot Wear Indicator to show how long each aligner has been worn, six free replacement aligners in case some are lost or broken, and other changes designed to accommodate growing mouths, Invisalign Teen is the perfect teeth-straightening system for today’s teens’ busy lifestyles! What is Invisalign Teen? Clear way to straighten your teeth without braces. Series of clear, removable, custom-made aligners. Uses no metal wires or brackets. Custom-made for comfort. How does Invisalign Teen work? Wear each set of aligners for about two weeks. Remove only to eat, drink, brush and floss. Your teeth will move gradually each week. Visit us every 8-10 weeks. Total treatment time averages 6-15 months. Average number of aligners is between 18 and 30. What conditions does Invisalign Teen treat? By using its advanced technology, Invisalign Teen can treat a broad range of dental and orthodontic conditions, which, in the past, were usually treated with traditional braces. These conditions include:
- Overly crowded teeth
- Widely spaced teeth
iTero Digital ImagingOur practice now offers the iTero Impressionless Scanner in our office. The innovative iTero Impressionless Scanner is an advanced technology used to take oral impressions for braces, Invisalign®, Appliance and retainers. Impressionless scanning uses confocal imaging to digitally capture the shape of teeth and gums, providing a multitude without the use of traditional impressions. Traditional impression techniques requires a patient to be uncomfortably seated while having a messy substance in their month. However, with the iTero Impressionless Scanner it takes 1/3 the time to take an impression andwhe get a much more detailed result. iTero Impressionless Scanners have several benefits over traditional impressions. First, a patient’s movement does not distort the scan while eliminating the invasiveness and discomfort caused by impressions. Second, the real-time digital display of scans allows for immediate adjustment, assuring accurate scans the first time. Finally, the image quality of impressionless scans is superior to conventional impressions.
