At Embassy Row, we specialize in several treatment options to improve your smile and help you achieve your orthodontic goals. In addition to Invisalign, we also offer Damon brackets, clear braces, and Incognito (lingual) braces; all of which place gentle yet precise forces on your teeth and the surrounding bone tissue. These forces stimulate a response that allows your teeth to gradually move. Though each treatment option produces similar results, their methodology varies greatly. Dr. Hickory will make recommendations for your treatment plan based on your lifestyle and needs.

Damon brackets ensure a comfortable and effective treatment

Damon brackets are self-ligating brackets that use light, high technology wires to aid in accelerated movement of your teeth. Unlike braces that use elastic ties to hold the wires, Damon brackets have a mechanism in the bracket that secures the wire, making them a more hygienic treatment option. Additionally, they are small, comfortable, and easy to clean. Self-ligating brackets allow treatment without the uncomfortable tightening of your teeth, easing your orthodontic treatment with less friction and faster movement.

Clear braces blend in perfectly with the color of your teeth

Clear braces work the same as metal braces, but they allow your teeth to undergo orthodontic treatment more discreetly, as they are less visible to the eye. We offer transparent and ceramic braces that closely match the color of your teeth. We also offer Damon Clear braces and Inspire ICE see-through braces, both renowned for their innovative technology.

Incognito braces remain hidden so you can always smile with confidence

Incognito braces are placed on the inside of your teeth, concealing unsightly brackets and wires behind your smile. As a result, you can grin from ear to ear without revealing that you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment.

All of our treatments are customized for you and your orthodontic needs. Please contact us if you would like to set up a complimentary consultation, or learn more about the different types of braces here.
