Self-litigating braces, the newest generation of braces, have no ligatures. Thus, teeth are able to slide more freely and treatment period is shortened. The absence of ligatures, which are known to trap bacteria, also results in better oral hygiene for patients. Here at 7 Day Dental, we offer the most famous brand of self-litigating braces – the Damon braces. As shown in a study, the treatment period for patients who used Damon braces can be up to six months shorter in some cases than patients who had traditional metal braces. The Damon braces are also known to be comfortable and esthetically appealing.
Invisalign & Lingual Braces
Invisalign: is one of the most valuable innovations in the field of orthodontics. The Invisalign system corrects the alignment of teeth using a series of custom-made, clear trays worn over short periods of time. The treatment time under the Invisalign system would depend on the severity of the problem; however, it’s definitely shorter than using traditional braces. Invisible, removable and comfortable to wear or use, Invisalign truly provides patients with a more pleasant orthodontic treatment experience.
Lingual Braces: are called hidden braces as they are attached on the inside part (the one facing the tongue) of the teeth. They are utilized only in the most minor cases.

Traditional Metal Braces
Traditional metal braces are the most common and oldest type of braces. Made of medical grade stainless steel, this type of braces is less expensive compared to their counterparts. Metal braces are noted to be very strong and capable of treating even the most difficult orthodontic problem.

Clear synthetic sapphire brackets are for patients seeking a less visible alternative to traditional braces. Made of synthetic sapphire crystalline, these “invisible” braces are noted for their superior strength and their esthetic properties. Moreover, they are non-porous making them more resistant to staining and absorbing odors.
