Different Types of Braces

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

Clear 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 Clear Braces

Just as the name implies, Damon Clear braces are clear and discrete. Some clear braces have visible metal parts or elastic ties, which often yellow during treatment. But because Damon braces are tieless, they're exempt from stains and discoloration. Damon Clear braces are designed for accurate tooth movement and long-lasting results. And because the need for an expander is lower, Damon braces are less likely to interfere with your speech.

Although the length of treatment varies from patient to patient, treatment time with Damon Clear is up to six months faster than with conventional braces – and this method is more comfortable. Because Damon don't need to be "tightened," you won't experience pain after office appointments.

Your dentist at Honey Grove Family Dentistry can determine whether Damon Clear braces are a good option for you. Call us at 317-882-8000.

Damon Metal Braces

A nice smile is not only beautiful, it also promotes good health. No matter what age you are, it is never too early or too late to invest in braces. Damon braces are appliances that are fitted in the same way as traditional metal braces. But instead of having brackets that tighten and adjust the braces regularly, Damon braces use a slide mechanism that attaches wires to brackets to move naturally with the teeth as they realign. This makes them more comfortable, better looking and able to provide strong results in a shorter time. Damon braces are more effective at correcting severe crowding, are more comfortable and have a lower relapse rate,

The Myobrace® System is preventive pre-orthodontic treatment that focuses on addressing the underlying causes of crooked teeth, often without the need for braces or extraction of teeth, unlocking natural growth and development. Treatment is best suited to children aged 3 to 15 and involves using a series of removable intraoral appliances that are worn for one to two hours each day and overnight while sleeping.
