Braces have come a long way in recent years thanks to advances in orthodontic technology and techniques. At Gladesville Orthodontics we use innovative digital scanning to capture patient records and use this to design Insignia braces, a customized bracing system.
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.
