Insignia braces- fully customised for you

The Most Advanced Technology

Like fingerprints, your smile is unique. Your orthodontic treatment can now be as unique as you are. Every individual is different and has varying needs; as such Insignia is the advanced approach in creating bespoke tailor made smiles. Insignia is advanced software that allows us to create a treatment plan tailored to your unique smile. As a result, you get 100% customised brackets and wires to fit your teeth and only your teeth. Unlike 99% of the traditional braces on the market which are generic and manufactured to fit all teeth, Insignia is as unique as you are. And, it is this customized approach that results in faster, more precise treatment. Insignia braces are now also available with ceramic brackets, resulting in braces which are barely visible.

Start with the End in Mind

Wouldn't it be nice to see what your finished smile looks like before you even get braces? Well, with Insignia it is now possible. You will be able to see your end result before starting treatment. Utilizing the 3-D representation of your exact tooth positioning, Insignia calculates the most optimal orthodontic plan for you. You are able to view, with precision accuracy, the correct curvature and width of the best smile specifically proportioned to your facial features. Unlike conventional brackets and wires, a treatment plan developed with Insignia creates a layer of meticulous detail that provides fast, accurate and predictable results.

Fixed Retainer In most cases, we will place the fixed wire retainer immediately after the brace has been removed so that the risk of relapse is minimal. The great advantage of a fixed wire retainer is that it… READ MORE
