Three Approaches to a Better Smile with Seligman Orthodontics

October 12, 2012

While traditional metal braces are a great way to treat a number of oral malocclusions, many people prefer a less noticeable approach to orthodontic treatment . If you’re looking for a subtle orthodontic treatment, Dr. David Seligman with Seligman Orthodontics on Park Avenue offers three unique treatment options for improving your smile:

Dental braces

1. Damon System
The Damon System uses a revolutionary type of bracket to reposition your teeth faster and much more comfortably than traditional metal brackets. The Damon System combines self-ligating braces and light, high-technology shape-memory wires to move your teeth without the need for elastic or metal ties, tooth extractions, or palatal expanders.

2. Insignia
Insignia is a unique software program and custom appliance system that provides patient-specific brackets, computer-assisted bracket placement, and custom wires that eliminate the need for frequent adjustment appointments. Additionally, Insignia software can be used in conjunction with Insignia™ Clearguide Express™, Damon Clear braces, and Inspire ICE braces.

3. Invisalign
One of the most popular orthodontic treatment methods is the Invisalign system, which utilizes a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten your teeth. Invisalign completely eliminates the need for brackets, archwires, and elastic ties, increasing patient comfort and making it easier to maintain proper oral hygiene. The number of aligners will vary from patient to patient based on the level of malocclusion. These aligners should be worn for at least 20 to 22 hours per day in order to achieve maximum results.

The best way to determine which orthodontic treatment method is right for your needs is to consult with your orthodontist.
