Braces have come a long way in recent years thanks to advances in orthodontic technology and techniques. We are proud to offer " INSIGNIA " braces, a customized bracing system. Like fingerprints, your smile is unique and Insignia allows us to treat you as an individual. Mt Albert Orthodontics are providers of the customized Insignia system.
Benefits Of Insignia
Insignia differs from traditional bracing systems, which use mass designed brackets, as it customises braces and wires for every patient to ensure accuracy, effectiveness and a truly customised smile. Insignia uses computer software to transform a patient's treatment plan into a virtual 3D model, allowing the orthodontist to start with the end in sight and calculate your optimal bite and smile. Insignia designs customised brackets for each individual tooth; no one bracket is the same.
There are several benefits to being treated with Insignia including:
• Precisely calculated tooth movement
• Accurate bracket placement
• Reduction in treatment time
• More comfortable treatment
Our orthodontists combine the advantages of Insignia with the design and benefits of Damon braces.

The Damon System is different to other bracing systems as it uses passive self-ligating braces that eliminate the need for elastic bands around the braces. This results in less friction, shorter treatment time and improved comfort levels. Damon braces use sliding doors to hold the wire in place, which allows the teeth to move more freely and with less force. Damon braces are available in both metal and clear options.
You should always read and follow the label and the instructions of your treating orthodontist.
