Types of Braces

Thanks to today’s advances in orthodontic technology, McReath Orthodontics can provide our patients with more options when it comes to wearing braces than ever before. Traditional metal braces are widely used along with Invisalign removable aligners, the “braceless” alternative to straight teeth. Dr. Timothy McReath will help you determine which treatment option is right for you.

Damon Braces (Metal)

Traditional metal braces are the most common type of brace used today. The metal brace that we use in our office is the Damon System, which is a revolutionary way to straighten teeth. The Damon brace is self-ligating, which means that the brace has a door built into it, so the colored ties are no longer necessary. These braces are smaller and more comfortable than ever before, and they are constructed of high-grade space age metal alloys. With the Damon System, treatment times with many patients are reduced, while maintaining maximum patient comfort. Click here to read more about the revolutionary Damon System.

Invisible Braces

Clear appliances, such as Invisalign, use a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners to straighten your teeth. No one can tell you are wearing those aligners because they are invisible! Invisalign aligners are removable so you are not limited in what you can eat and drink during treatment. Plus… brushing and flossing are less of a hassle. The aligners are comfortable and have no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. Invisalign
