Clear & Metal Braces

Metal braces are the most common type. They are made of high-grade stainless steel. Today’s metal braces are smaller, more comfortable and more attractive.

Clear braces are made of ceramic and are therefore less visible on your teeth than metal braces. For this reason, ceramic braces are a great option for 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.

You have the option to personalize your braces with various colors to choose from every time you come in for an appointment. Learn more…

Damon Self-Ligating Braces

Self-ligating braces are made from the same materials as other braces, but they use a special clip to hold the wire in place rather than elastic or steel ties. This technology creates less friction and results in greater comfort for the patient. In addition, self-ligating braces often reduce both treatment time and the number of adjustments that are usually performed, so they are a great option for adults with busy schedules. Learn more…

Invisible (Lingual) Braces

Lingual braces are bonded to the back surface of the teeth and are therefore “invisible”. Your teeth will be scanned with a state-of-the-art iTero scanner to produce custom braces to fit the shape of your individual teeth. Due to their invisible appearance, they are a great option for many adult professionals but do require intitial adjustments for speech and adherence to dietary restrictions. Learn more…

INBRACE Lingual Braces

INBRACE is the newest and most technologically advanced brand of lingual braces. INBRACE was designed to eliminate the most common challenges of working behind the teeth. It is unique because it utilizes self-ligating brackets which have a small clip to hold the wire in place. Learn more…

Invisalign & Invisalign Teen

Invisalign is a series of clear plastic aligners that are to be worn full time to progressively straighten your teeth, similar to braces. Not only are the aligners invisible, but they can also be removed to eat or drink whatever you want during treatment.The aligners are comfortable and have no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. Invisalign is a great esthetic option for teenagers and adults who are good candidates. Dr. Desh will evaluate your smile to determine if this would be the best option to create your perfect smile!

Acceledent

AcceleDent is a simple-to-use, hands-free device that is used 20 minutes per day to accelerate tooth movement. It does this by generating small vibrations, called micropulses, to gently accelerate the movement of your teeth as they are guided by your orthodontics. Whether you have braces or Invisalign, these micropulses can also help make your orthodontics more comfortable. It is completely safe and feels very similar to the vibration of an electric toothbrush. Learn more…
