Types of Braces

InvisalignHere at Grand Prairie Orthodontics, we are dedicated to giving our patients the orthodontic care they need.

To do this, we offer several types of braces so that our patients can get the smiles they deserve.

Braces work by moving your teeth back into the correct position. You need to continue to visit the orthodontist regularly to ensure that your braces are working the way they should. They will need to be adjusted when needed to continue to do their job.

After the braces have done their job, you will need to wear a retainer, which helps to keep your teeth in the right position. This could be temporary, though you may have to wear it for longer.

Damon® System

We are dedicated to staying on top of the latest advances in dental medicine. Braces have come a long way in the many years since they were invented. They are better designed and work even better than they used to. The Damon® System proves that.

The Damon® System uses self-ligating brackets and hi-tech light-force archwires to improve your bite and smile. It is minimally invasive, yet it has proven to be very effective. The results are often extraordinary.

We use the Damon® System because we really believe in it. It offers you a more comfortable way to get the smile you deserve. It takes less time and has better results than traditional braces. You don’t have to come in as often, which saves you valuable time. And, for the worst cases, we often don’t have to perform surgery and still get the results we want.

It is our goal to help our patients as quickly and efficiently as possible. We truly feel that using the Damon® system is perfect for our patients. Patients are more comfortable. They can get the results they want quicker than they ever thought possible.

Incognito™

Incognito braces are the newest form of braces on the market.

They work well because they are fully customizable to fit your mouth and teeth. Since everyone is different, each set of braces is too! They are made to fit your teeth and your situation so that they are quite effective and comfortable.

Incognito braces are great because they are hidden behind your teeth so nobody has to know that you are getting your teeth treated! You can treat your teeth no matter what important events you have coming up. You also don’t have to worry about taking them out and forgetting to put them back in like other clear braces. They are easy to use and work great!


Invisalign®

Invisalign® is a modern alternative to straighten your teeth without wires or metal. Invisalign® involves a series of custom trays designed specifically for you and the plan your dentist or orthodontist creates to move your teeth. The trays are made from a smooth plastic that covers your teeth and gradually moves them into place.

Unlike braces, there are no brackets to tighten. Instead, you use different trays as your teeth move into position. Typically trays are changed every two weeks. Invisalign® is a popular choice for straightening because it involves minimal disturbance to your daily routine or appearance. The trays are difficult to see and most people will have no idea you are wearing them.

If you have considered straightening your teeth, contact us today to learn more about Invisalign® and how it can benefit you.
