When it comes to your smile, BE CHOOSY! There are so many different ortho treatments so choose the one that fits YOUR style.
Ok we want you to stop thinking about those horrendous bulky metal brackets and headgear (thanks Sixteen Candles). Seriously, though. Stop, we beg you. Things have come a LONG (and I mean LONG) way in the last even decade. At Lineberger Orthodontics we invest in the cutting edge, top-of-the-line braces so our patients can have comfortable, effective treatment. Known as the Damon System of Braces, our treatment produces big, wide, healthy smiles customized for every individual’s facial balance and appearance. No tightening wires, no pain, no fear, no tears. Phew, glad we got that off our chests.

Why We Use the Damon System of Braces
At Lineberger Orthodontics, we’ve got your back. We use only the latest braces options so you get that selfie-worthy smile in no time! The Damon System of Braces are self-ligating (which is a strange word to explain that instead of having your brackets and wires tightened throughout treatment, they use a sliding mechanism that attaches the wires to the brackets so your teeth more more naturally). This produces less force than traditional braces, which also often require tooth extractions and expanders or headgear. NOT HERE!
Here are just a few other benefits of using the Damon System of Braces:
AND PSSSST. Guess what? You can get braces the SAME DAY as your consultation. Come in with no bling. Leave WITH bling. It’s brilliant!
So maybe you don’t want all the metal that comes with more traditional orthodontic treatment. Cool. We got you. Enter Invisalign. Invisalign uses a series of customized clear aligners to straighten your smile. No metal brackets. No metal wires. And the best part, they’re removable. So there are NO food restrictions like you have with metal braces. SCORE. Have you been told you’re NOT a candidate for Invisalign? Don’t worry. Don’t give up hope. We’ve had dozens of patients come to us saying that exact thing and guess what, when you have the expertise like we do in Invisalign, you ARE a candidate.
Have you heard of orthognathic surgery or oral and maxillofacial surgery? We think that’s WAY too complicated so we just say orthodontic surgery. This is a field of oral surgery that helps with more severe orthodontic conditions that cannot be corrected with braces or Invisalign #bummer. Orthodontic surgery is typically performed before you get braces (or you may end up not needing braces at all!)
Orthodontic retainers are most often used after braces or Invisalign treatment is complete (or sometimes in between Phase 1 and Phase 2 in Early Treatment). Retainers do a super awesome job of holding your teeth in place. We worked so hard on that smile. Make sure you take care of it!
Ok, you ready to hear something amazing? I know you are. So, we offer a Lifetime Retainer Program where you can get free retainers for LIFE for a small upfront cost. Believe us when we say, retainers tend to go missing (ie, Fido gets ahold of them, thrown away on lunch trays — we’ve heard a lot of these stories). The cost of this program FAR beats the cost of replacing retainers. We’ll fill you in on all the deets at your initial consultation so you can decide if it’s a program you’d like to join. (We think you will).
