Lingual Braces (Incognito & Incognito Light)
Incognito is the latest & greatest technology for lingual braces also known as hidden braces, or invisible braces (invisibraces). Incognito hidden braces are a unique choice because patients can smile with confidence both during and after treatment. Placed on the lingual side (tongue side) of the teeth, Incognito Orthodontic Braces are completely hidden from view. They are contoured to hug the lingual surface of your teeth for optimal comfort and performance. Incognito Braces are also 100% customized to meet the unique orthodontic prescription of every patient. No two brackets are exactly alike. Customization of incognito can lead to a more convenient and comfortable treatment experience with decreased treatment time and expense. Incognito offers patients the benefit of braces and the advantages of nothing visible similar to Invisalign.
Incognito Light is a lower cost alternative to Incognito full. The goals for incognito light are limited to the front 8 teeth. This allows for a lower cost with the same great hidden invisible benefits. The only braces made for flirting – No one will see how you improved your smile, but this option is not for everyone. Request an appointment to see if you qualify for incognito light.
Invisalign is a very popular treatment option that involves wearing a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually move your teeth without wires or brackets. Invisalign is a comfortable, affordable, and effective way to straighten teeth. Patients do not have to avoid any foods while on this treatment program because the aligners are removed prior to eating. The aligners are nearly invisible and are a great option for adult patients. Since the aligners are removable, patients are able to keep their teeth very clean during treatment, which minimizes any side effects that we may see with traditional braces.
Invisalign offers four products for adults which is decided by the doctor during the initial exam. The treatment plan dictates which product can be used. If the treatment is very minor Invisalign 5 is a lower cost option that offers only 5 aligners for correction. Invisalign Express is a longer treatment with 10 aligners and the cost is slightly higher than Invisalign 5.
Damon System – Damon Clear, Damon 3’s, Damon Q’s
Damon braces are a system of passive, self-ligating braces that eliminate the need for elastic or metal “ties”. With Damon tie-less braces you can experience treatment without tightening and less discomfort. Light high-technology shape-memory wires move teeth faster and require fewer adjustments.
The Damon System is a clinically-proven treatment approach that aligns your teeth and enhances your facial aesthetics – usually without extractions or rapid palatal expanders. Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the wire, which allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably. Smaller than traditional brackets, Damon braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable and easy to keep clean. Without the elastic ties which attract and collect plaque, Damon braces make dental hygiene easy during treatment. Treatment time is usually shorter than traditional braces. We now offer accelerated orthodontics with the Damon system.
Damon Clear is part of the innovative Damon System, for the more image-conscious, Damon Clear is comprised of clear brackets situated on the most visible teeth to deliver a discrete treatment experience with results that go beyond straight teeth. Treatment is extremely effective, and everyone is a candidate for the Damon Clear system of braces. We do not find the Damon clear braces to stain, wear, chip or break during treatment. Damon 3’s are a hybrid half metal and half clear bracket offered at a slightly lower price with all the same benefits. The Damon Q’s are the full metal self ligating braces that are slightly less expensive then the Damon 3’s and the Damon Clears.
Recent improvements in traditional braces have resulted in smaller, stronger, more efficient and less conspicuous braces. Metal braces are most popular for placing color ties on the braces and they are the most noticeable. We offer a variety of Metal Braces options that are low profile and affordable. If you are looking for a low cost orthodontic solution this is it. Metal braces are the most familiar, and traditionally offer very effective treatment results in reasonable treatment times.
