Orthodontic Treatment Options
At Madison Pediatric Dental & Orthodontics, we’re always looking for ways to give our patients more comfort, more confidence, and more reasons to smile!
We’re very pleased to offer the Damon Self-Ligating Appliance system to all of our patients needing braces.
Damon braces provide advanced alternatives to traditional braces. Using light, gentle forces, Damon braces make the path to a beautiful smile faster and more comfortable than ever. Damon braces come in both metal and ceramic options. To learn more about Damon braces, click here!
Metal braces are made of stainless steel and are the most common type of braces used. Today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.
Ceramic braces are made of clear materials and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are used mainly on older teenagers and adult patients who have cosmetic concerns. While they are visually less prominent, they do require more attention to oral hygiene as ceramic braces are larger and are more brittle than their metal counterparts. For these reasons, ceramic braces tend to be used more on upper front teeth than on lower teeth.
Invisalign® uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners to straighten your teeth. And, no one can tell you are wearing Invisalign because it’s invisible! Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are less of a hassle. The aligners are comfortable and have no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. To learn more about Invisalign, click here!
