Orthodontic braces are used to treat many orthodontic conditions but not all orthodontic braces are equal. Some orthodontic braces such as clear aligners can treat only mild to moderate cases such as misaligned teeth, open bites, narrow smiles or incorrectly spaced teeth, which they do very well. Whereas the more traditional braces such as Damon or lingual braces such as Incognito or Suresmile can treat the more serious teeth and bone growth orthodontic conditions.
Your orthodontist is the best person to advise you regarding treatment for your orthodontic condition, but if your appearance, during the course of your treatment, is important to you, then it pays to be informed when you consult with your orthodontist.

Dr Geoffrey Wexler very much likes Invisalign and Suresmile clear aligners as a very gentle method of straightening crooked teeth. With the ICAT 3D computer software orthodontists now have an unprecented level of control over how teeth move as treatment progresses. This allows Dr Wexler to tailor the smile to each patient, so that all his patients get the smile that is best for their mouth and the shape of their face.
For truly invisible braces that correct some of the most troublesome bite conditions or teeth that are severely crooked lingual braces would be a better option than Damon Braces. Although Damon braces are very good for correcting orthodontic conditions they are not invisible but are more like the traditional braces except very much improved in terms of cosmetic appearance. Damon braces also come with a clear option which makes them far less conspicuous than traditional orthodontic braces. Suresmile and Incognito are completely invisible as they sit behind the teeth and absolutely no one will know you are wearing braces at all. Suresmile and Incognito are so invisible they will not even show up on your wedding photgraphs and indeed many brides to be take this option.
