Damon Smiles, Invisalign, Ceramic, And Lingual Braces

damon braces and invisalign Fishers

Today’s post provides specifics about some of the newest types of braces.

Two proprietary orthodontic systems advertised in the Indianapolis area are Invisalign and Damon Smiles. Damon Smiles has created a new device used with the conventional method while Invisalign takes an entirely new approach.

With old-school metal braces, the wires are connected to the teeth with brackets. Damon Smiles developed the passive slide mechanism. The wires in Damon Smiles braces pass through a clear plastic bracket that allows the wire to gently move as teeth are pulled into place. Many orthodontists and patients in Fishers believe this industry-leading system provides more flexibility, less pressure, and less friction.

The name Invisalign is an apt description of what this technologically-advanced system does: align teeth invisibly. With Invisalign, patients receive custom plastic aligners that fit snugly over the teeth. Every couple of weeks, as the teeth move, the patient changes the aligners. Patients appreciate the fact that Invisalign trays are barely noticeable and they don’t restrict a normal diet. It is also beneficial that they are easy to keep clean.

Two variations on conventional braces are ceramic braces and lingual braces. Note that these terms are not brand names.

Ceramic braces work just like traditional metal braces except they are far less noticeable. The brackets on the teeth are made of tooth-colored ceramic and they also offer the option of tooth-colored wires.

Lingual braces are also constructed similar to traditional metal braces, except they are positioned on the inside of teeth – tongue side.

Each of these systems has pros and cons with the price being an essential factor for many orthodontic patients.

    Dr's Behner and Pence provide an outstanding service and I am glad they are my dentist. Their staff is awesome also.

    —Pat S.

    Jeanie M.

    I know I need some extra pats and such to get me ready, and they always have been there to smile and reassure me! It’s extremely embarrassing to have so much fear but they are there not judging by comforting me!

    —Jeanie M.

    Leslee D.

    I had put off having dental work because of anxiety. I’m so glad to have been referred to Dr. Behner many years ago. Being able to have IV sedation enabled me to get the work done that was needed. Dr. Behner and his staff are so understanding. My bite is better due to crowns and I’m no longer in pain. Thank you, Dr. Behner. I no longer “dread” the dentist.

    —Leslee D.

    Cindy M.

    My experince with Dr. Behner and staff seriously changed my life. I’m 52, and feared the dentist since childhood, after terrible visits. Over 5 years ago, I found Dr. Behner after doing an internet search for sedation dentistry. At my first visit, even before my sedation appt., I knew I had found my dentist for life. The atmosphere, the staff, and the dentist, all give a sense of comfort and peace. I’ve never once been afraid again, and actually look forward to my appointments!

    —Cindy M.

    Judy S.

    The entire staff is so kind and considerate that over the years my anxiety has diminished. They are my "dental family". Just had an extraction and cannot imagine a better dentist!

    —Judy S.
