Clear Braces, Non-Ligating Braces or Temporary Anchorage Devices
Ceramic Braces (Clear Braces)
Ceramic braces, also known as clear braces, offer a more aesthetically pleasing way to straighten your teeth. Ceramic braces function just like traditional metal braces, expect the brackets are clear or tooth-colored, rather than metallic. This allows them to be almost invisible.
Non-ligating braces are essentially brackets that do not require tying (or ligating) the arch wire into the bracket with tiny ‘O-rings’ or wire ties. Non-ligating braces tend to move teeth more freely with less friction along the arch wire, which generally results in less treatment time for our patients.
TADs (Orthodontic Anchorage)
Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs) provide efficient and flexible biomechanics. TADs significantly enhance treatment capabilities and can be extremely effective in reducing treatment time, surgeries and extractions.
Indirect bonding represents a step-by-step process that allows the doctors to fundamentally reduce the amount of chair time involved when bonding brackets to a patient. Indirect bonding system greatly improves the patient experience, as the process significantly reduces the patient’s chair time spent holding their jaw open to accommodate bonding.
In other words, the indirect bonding system allows complete bonding in roughly 30 minutes vs. the 60 to 90 minutes that patients would typically experience during conventional bonding procedures.
