Types Of Braces


Dr. Bradley S. Hall and his amazing team at Epic Orthodontics proudly provide patients of all ages living in and around Parker County, TX with exceptional orthodontic care. Every patient that we see is unique, so our practice offers several types of braces to ensure we have a treatment method that meets each of our patients' needs and desires.

We understand that choosing the right types of braces can be challenging, and we hope that the following information will shed some light on the advanced treatments that we provide. 

Traditional Metal Braces.

Metal Braces

The most common types of braces available are metal braces made of high-grade stainless steel. These braces are smaller, more attractive and more comfortable than the metal braces used in the past. Patients choosing metal braces may have the option of adding colored elastic ties to personalize and colorize their smiles.  

Damon System

The Damon System uses tie-less brackets that reduce pressure on teeth, allowing them to move teeth more comfortably into their new positions. This system takes into account the patient's face, profile and other factors, anticipating what the patient will look like later in life. Treatment with Damon braces is typically shorter than with conventional braces, which means patients wearing these braces can obtain their new smiles faster while enjoying greater comfort throughout the treatment process.


Ceramic Braces

Ceramic Braces.The clear braces we use are made of a translucent ceramic material that allows you to smile with confidence. While these braces are significantly less prominent than metal braces, they are susceptible to discoloration when certain foods and drinks are consumed and are more fragile that their metal counterparts, making them a better option for adult patients. 

Insignia Braces

Insignia braces take a revolutionary, 100% customized approach to improving a smile. Made with advanced 3D computer imaging technology, Insignia braces consist of precision brackets and wires that are custom-tailored to your teeth, smile and treatment plan, resulting in more comfort, shorter treatment time and optimal results.

Because the aligners can be removed, you can continue to enjoy all your favorite foods including hard, sticky and gooey foods for the duration of your treatment. Invisalign is convenient, discreet and highly effective, making this treatment option one of the most popular among adults.


Invisalign Teen

Invisalign Teen is very similar to regular Invisalign, but with a couple of notable differences. Invisalign Teen aligners come with discreet "compliance indicators" that fade with wear to show the teenager, parents and orthodontist whether or not the aligners are being worn as directed. These aligners also have "eruption tabs" built in which hold space for adult teeth to erupt into place.
