AAO - Braces are far more attractive than crooked teeth
We Utilize American Orthodontics® Products:
Our main line bracket system is The Master Series bracket, manufactured by American Orthodontics®. The company was founded in 1968 and headquartered in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. We utilize this system because American Orthodontics®, as one of the world’s largest manufacturers of orthodontic treatment suppliers, is committed to providing high quality products.
Master Series is a versatile, metal twin bracket system that orthodontists around the world have trusted for more than 25 years. Master Series' patented Diagonal Torque and Diagonal Angulation makes bonding precision simple, delivering exceptional results with fewer wire bends. This is extremely important as the three dimensional control of each tooth allows us to give our patients the smiles they deserve.
We Utilize The Damon® System Brackets:
The Damon® System brackets are one type of self-ligating brackets “or” tie-less braces that don't need to be "tightened" and are gentle to the teeth and tissues. This system of tooth movement utilizes high-technology, memory-shape wires and self-ligating braces that are made from the same materials as traditional braces. They do not require the use of elastics, meaning less friction being placed on the tooth. Self-ligating braces come with traditional metal, ceramic, or clear brackets. They are the same size as metal braces, but use a specialized clip in place of elastics to help the archwire guide teeth into place.
We Are An Invisalign® and Clear Aligner Provider:
Aligners straighten your teeth without wires and brackets, which give you a clear, convenient, and comfortable option to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted. Combining advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with the science of orthodontics, 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.
Each aligner is worn for about two to four weeks for 22+ hours a day and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth will gently and gradually shift into place. You'll visit us about once every six weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time will vary from case to case from about 8-18 months.
