Types of Braces (Fixed Appliances)

Damon® Brackets

With the Damon® System, treatment time is typically shorter than with traditional braces. Shorter treatment time means fewer appointments and a beautiful smile…faster. You may be surprised at how fast.

The Damon® System employs a unique treatment philosophy that goes beyond straight teeth to create broad beautiful smiles. We take into account each patient’s face, profile and other factors, anticipating what patients will look like in their 40’s, 50’s and beyond.

The days of having braces tightened are over. The Damon® System uses tie-less brackets that reduce the pressure on your teeth, allowing them to move more comfortably to their correct positions. The innovative approach to orthodontics ensures greater comfort throughout treatment.

Damon® Clear

Damon® clear braces are virtually invisible, so no one may know you are wearing braces. Other types of clear braces feature metal parts that are visible, as well as elastic ties that can become discolored and collect bacteria throughout treatment. Damon® clear braces are tie-less and discrete. They are not prone to staining and discoloration.


The Invisalign® System is a revolutionary, virtually invisible orthodontic treatment. With Invisalign® you can smile with confidence during and after treatment. Invisalign® is designed to gradually improve your smile using a series of clear, customized and removable aligners.

The aligners are comfortable to wear. Treatment is convenient. You will visit the office every four to six weeks so Dr. Cook and Dr. Gutsche can evaluate your treatment progress and provide you with new aligners. You can keep eating your favorite foods during treatment. Simply brush and floss as normal to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

Certain orthodontic problems in teens can be successfully treated using the Invisalign Teen® system.

Retention Appliances

For most patients, clear, invisible retainers can be used in place of traditional retainers that have wires in front of the teeth. Fixed (bonded) retainers are routinely placed behind the upper and lower front teeth to better stabilize the orthodontic result.
