Different Types Of Braces | Damon & Isignia Braces

Types of braces

At Clear Smiles Orthodontics, our team is experienced in using a range of orthodontic appliances, including different types of braces. This means we can treat you with the type of braces you’ll get the best results from.

Insignia braces

Insignia braces are customised braces that get great results. Using the traditional method of brackets and archwires, the advanced technology and software of Insignia braces mean treatment is tailored to your needs and results are seen faster. 

If you choose to have Insignia braces fitted, your treatment journey will start with the creation of a tailored treatment plan that uses the advanced Insignia software to customise your own set of braces. This 3D software analyses your facial profile, enabling us to see the ultimate position your teeth should be in. You can then see what your new smile and newly straightened teeth will look like upon completion of treatment.

What are the benefits of Insignia?

  • Customisation – Insignia’s advanced smile design technology ensures your braces are designed specifically for your needs to get the results you’re after.
  • Comfort – Because Insignia’s technology enables your braces to be customised for your treatment needs, they’ll fit perfectly on your teeth, unlike ‘off-the-shelf’ models.
  • Speed – By having a set of braces that are fitted for your teeth and your teeth only, treatment will be quicker and more effective.
  • Convenience – Faster treatment time also means fewer orthodontic appointments.
  • Results – Insignia’s 3D software programme means you can see what your new teeth will look like before you’ve even started treatment.

Damon braces

Another brand of braces we use here at Clear Smiles Orthodontics is the Damon system. These braces look much like traditional metal braces but also come in a clear option. Damon Clear braces consist of brackets made out of clear ceramic, so when they are fitted to the front surface of your teeth they blend in with the natural colour of your teeth.

What are the benefits of Damon braces?

  • Comfortable to wear: Damon braces use much smaller brackets than traditional metal braces, reducing the risk of the brackets rubbing on the inside of your cheek. This makes for a more comfortable treatment experience.
  • Discreet: The smaller brackets and clear ceramic brackets used with the Damon system mean these braces are one of the more discreet options of traditional braces.
  • Great investment: Damon braces are an extremely cost-effective treatment option. They provide our patients with the best of both worlds – a discreet appliance that’s relatively friendly on the pocket!

Invisible braces

Although they are not braces in the traditional sense, aligners are another treatment option we have available here at Clear Smiles Orthodontics. We use two different types of aligners: Invisalign aligners and Spark aligners.

Different  types of braces to straighten your smile

Having orthodontic treatment is an important step towards a healthy bite and straighter teeth. But it isn’t a one-size-fits all solution., That’s why it is important to ensure you receive the most appropriate treatment for you.

At Clear Smiles Orthodontics, we offer a number of different types of braces, to make sure you are receiving completely custom, effective treatment which will achieve the results you’re looking for.

Insignia braces

Insignia braces are traditional braces, which use metal brackets cemented to your teeth, and wires to pull the teeth into place. Insignia braces use the latest technology to tailor your treatment exactly to your individual needs, giving you your desired results in the quickest possible time.

Advanced 3D software analyses the structure of your face, and customises your braces for the ultimate results. The software can also show you in advance what your teeth will look like once your treatment is complete, giving you some incentive to continue good dental hygiene and regular checkups during your treatment.

Damon braces

Damon braces also use brackets and wires, but they are made from clear ceramic. This means they blend in effectively with your teeth, making your braces subtle when you smile.

Invisible braces

For those who want their orthodontic treatment to be as discreet as possible, we also offer Invisalign and Spark treatments. These straighten your teeth using removable aligners made from clear plastic, so they are almost invisible.

Invisalign is a registered medical device. You should read and follow instructions for use on the label and of your treating orthodontist. This will help ensure safe use and the best results possible.
