Damon Smiles, Invisalign, Ceramic, And Lingual Braces

damon braces and invisalign Marble Falls

If you are considering having your teeth corrected, this post is for you. Today’s article provides specifics about some of the newest types of braces.

Two proprietary orthodontic systems advertised in the Horseshoe Bay area are Invisalign and Damon Smiles. Damon Smiles has created a new device used with the traditional method while Invisalign takes an entirely new approach.

With old-school metal braces, the wires are connected to the teeth with brackets. Damon Smiles created the passive slide mechanism. The wires in Damon Smiles’s braces pass through a clear plastic bracket that allows the wire to gently move as teeth are pulled into place. Many Marble Falls orthodontists and patients believe this unprecedented system provides more flexibility, less pressure, and less friction.

The name Invisalign is an apt description of what this technologically advanced system does: align teeth invisibly. With Invisalign, patients receive custom plastic aligners that fit snugly over the teeth. Every couple of weeks, as the teeth move, the patient changes the aligners. Patients appreciate the fact that Invisalign trays are barely noticeable and they don’t restrict a normal diet. It is also useful that they are easy to keep clean.

Two variations of traditional braces are ceramic braces and lingual braces. Note that these terms are not brand names.

Ceramic braces work just like traditional metal braces except they are far less noticeable. The brackets on the teeth are made of tooth-colored ceramic and they also offer the option of tooth-colored wires.

Lingual braces are also constructed similarly to traditional metal braces, except they are positioned on the inside of the teeth – tongue side.

Each of these systems has pros and cons with the price being a vital factor for many orthodontic patients. For an evaluation of your orthodontic needs and a recommendation on which system to pick, call 830-693-8833 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Greg Ritchie at Ritchie Dental Group.
