Types of Braces

woman blueDr. McElhinney's 30 year commitment to kind and gentle patient care has led him to stay abreast of the latest in technological advances. These advances have allowed our office to offer extraordinary smiles in less time with greater comfort. For those who require an invisible brace we offer Invisalign, Invisalign Teen and other clear aligner treatments.

Damon™ Braces

Our office is an exclusive provider of Damon System self-ligating braces. The Damon System is a whole new way of treating patients. Conventional treatment often requires removal of healthy teeth and/or the use of palatal expanders to make space. This approach is often uncomfortable, takes longer, and can leave a narrower arch and a flat profile. Damon smiles are full, natural 10-tooth smiles achieved with light biologically-sensible forces, and are specifically designed to improve the overall facial result of each patient.

Braces are the beginning, but the system makes the smile.

Dr. McElhinney combines the following three key components of the DAMON System. When used together treatment is faster, with fewer appointment, greater comfort, and consistent high-quality results:

  1. Damon passive self-ligating braces that eliminate the need for elastic or metal "ties". With Damon tie-less braces you can experience treatment without tightening.
  2. Light high-technology shape-memory wires that move teeth faster and require fewer adjustments.
  3. Simplified treatment procedures that align your teeth and enhances your facial aesthetics – typically without rapid palatal expanders, headgear or extractions.

Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen

Dr. McElhinney is a Top 100 Certified Invisalign Provider, offering experience you can trust.

Invisalign® uses a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners to straighten you teeth. A custom made plan prescribed by Dr. McElhinney creates the changes you desire.

No one will notice that you are wearing Invisalign because they are invisible! Not only are the aligners invisible, they are removable, so you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment, plus brushing and flossing are less of a hassle. The aligners are comfortable and have no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment.
