This is the choice for those who want “colors” on their braces [usually the pre-adult crowd!]. It is also the most cost effective way to straighten your teeth. You should know that at Bubon Orthodontics, we use a modern brand of traditional braces called “Synergy”. Synergy braces use SWLF (Straight Wire Low Friction), the latest development in advanced orthodontic brace technology. Other styles of braces have a greater “binding effect” on the archwires that are put in the mouth. This creates friction and pressure that act like parking brakes and can slow down treatment. Like the renowned Damon bracket, Synergy braces provide minimal friction and more rapid yet comfortable tooth movement.
