Insignia Clearguide

Invisible!          Removable!          Comfortable!          Convenient!                 

fernie dental insignia clearguide Insignia Clearguide makes it easy to straighten your teeth without bands, brackets, or wires. Insignia Clearguide is a virtually invisible solution so you can smile during, as well as after treatment.  In fact, virtually no one will know you’re wearing them unless you tell. By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Insignia Clearguide straightens your teeth right before your eyes. Change them about every two weeks and your teeth will move – little by little – toward the smile you have always wanted.

Insignia Clearguide is effective in treating both teens and adults.  The aligners are comfortable to wear and it doesn’t require you to change your busy lifestyle. You visit your dentist every 6 weeks to check your progression and get new aligners.  Because aligners are removable, you can continue to eat your favorite foods and continue brushing and flossing normally to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

DAMON SYSTEM

While the Damon System is still considered to be traditional orthodontics, it works with breakthrough technology that results in a fantastic smile much faster and with outstanding comfort than those systems that came before it.  This system can be used to treat patients of any age.

The Damon System braces use a unique slide mechanism that minimizes the friction and binding of conventional braces.  With the Damon System teeth align more quickly and comfortably.  Passive self-ligating braces eliminate the need for elastic or metal “ties”.  The high technology wires move the teeth faster and require fewer adjustments.  Treatment is usually completed without extraction or rapid palatal expander and treatment time is typically shorter than with conventional braces.
Straight teeth and a beautiful smile can enhance self-esteem and self-confidence at any age, plus improve overall health.  Book an appointment with Dr. Amos Kahane to see how you can benefit from the Damon System – it’s never too late to look and feel great!
