Metal braces

At Signature Orthodontics, we use the latest in orthodontic technology and techniques to get the best results for our patients. That’s why even our traditional metal braces treatments have modern, efficient twists. We offer two types of metal braces: 3M braces and Damon braces.

Traditional metal braces

Traditional metal braces are now smaller, more comfortable and more efficient. If you start treatment with 3M metal braces, small brackets will be bonded to the front surfaces of your teeth.

These brackets will be connected with a thin metal archwires and apply gentle pressure to move your teeth into alignment.

Damon self-ligating braces

Damon self-ligating braces use a slide mechanism (instead of elastics) to hold the archwires in place. That means there may be less friction against your teeth and they may move more easily into the desired position.

Damon braces also require less visits and a shorter overall treatment time in some cases.
