Types of Braces We Use
We understand that every patient has different orthodontic needs. This is why we offer a variety of treatment options for children, teenagers and adults which include:
Damon System Braces
The Damon System consists of brackets that use a slide mechanism to maintain arch wires within the bracket, allowing them to move freely. This reduces friction so that the teeth move faster. Damon braces help patients of all ages enjoy comfortable treatment as they enjoy dramatic improvements in their smiles.
The Invisalign System consists of a series of clear, removable aligners which gradually move teeth into place. Because the aligners are clear, they are nearly invisible which means that most people won't even notice that you're having your teeth straightened. And, because you can take the aligners out, you can eat those foods you love throughout the course of your treatment while brushing and flossing your teeth as you normally do.
Invisalign Teen is similar to Invisalign except this treatment option is designed especially for teenagers. Each Invisalign Teen aligner features a 'Blue Dot' technology which is there to tell your teen when it's time to move onto the next set of aligners in the series. And, with Invisalign Teen, your child will be given extra aligners in case some are broken or lost.
We are always accepting new patients at our Pasco and Richland, WA orthodontic offices! If you'd like to set up an appointment, call us at 509-943-2505 or fill out and submit the 'Appointment Request' form that's on our main website. We look forward to seeing you soon!
