While I had my braces on at Dr. Murphy’s office, it was so fun! I thought I was going to have them on forever but it was less than a year. Now my teeth look great . . . Thanks to everyone who helped. I love Dr. Murphy’s office!

With today’s orthodontic techniques, you don’t have to worry about having a “metal-mouth” to bring your teeth into a better position. Many new and effective braces treatments involve methods that are virtually invisible to others, helping you straighten your teeth without everyone having to know.
Damon System Braces
Damon System braces are more cosmetically pleasing than traditional metal braces, and do not need elastic ties to hold wires into the brackets. These braces are known for their efficiency – plus, they often take less time to achieve optimal results.
In-Ovation R and In-Ovation C Braces
In-Ovation R and In-Ovation C braces are smaller, less noticeable, and more comfortable and hygienic alternatives to metal braces. The technique’s unique design and innovative components can also shorten the time of your treatment.
Traditional braces have undergone a number of positive changes over the years, with designs that make them more comfortable and less noticeable to others. These tried-and-true orthodontic techniques can work wonders for straightening your teeth and improving your smile.
One of the most state-of-the-art orthodontic advances to come along in decades, Invisalign® is a system of clear teeth aligners that you can remove for eating, drinking, and daily teeth cleaning. Each aligner is designed to progressively move your teeth into the desired position, and the treatment often takes less time than traditional braces to achieve great results.
Invisalign® can not only help adults with effective and discreet orthodontic treatment, they can also be used to bring teenagers’ teeth into better alignment. Invisalign®’s clear and removable teeth aligners can be helpful for adolescents who may be worried about shouts of “metal-mouth” from their peers.
Lingual braces are placed on the back-side of the teeth, instead of the front. These braces are not only invisible to others, but they can also be beneficial for those who play contact sports or wind instruments.
