Smile design starts with accurate diagnosis which facilitates an optimal treatment plan for each patient. This treatment plan is best provided with an individualized selection of appliances. Dr. Rosang has selected several appliance systems to suit the unique demands of each patient. In fact, your case may call for a harmonious blend of several appliances as each have strengths and even weaknesses.
The Mini twin bracket system has been the traditional braces of choice for over thirty years and remains such for many orthodontists to this day. Brackets are simply glued to the facial surface of each tooth. These can be combined with colorful elastics and full bands where extra support is needed.
The SPEED bracket system is a newer design with Nickel - Titanium alloy doors that flex and hold the archwire in position. Initial alignment is often faster with SPEED appliances and hygiene may be improved as colorful elastics may not be required.
Innovation-C bracket system also includes a self ligating door and blends this with a ceramic bracket providing aesthetic and functional benefits. Unlike traditional aesthetic brackets, these do not require elastic which stain easily.
Damon braces are another type of self ligating brackets which allow unparalleled expansion and elimination of crowding.
INVISALIGN is the clear choice for those wishing to improve their teeth without braces. It is a series of clear aligners worn almost full time to incrementally move your teeth.
