Man smiles with braces.Welcome to the future of orthodontic treatment – Insignia Advanced Smile Design, a computerized system that works in concert with Damon System Braces to advance the science and art of orthodontics beyond capabilities seen with traditional braces. Insignia Advanced Smile Design allows Dr. Housewright to combine digital treatment planning with custom-manufactured Damon System Braces to perfect the unique, one-of-a-kind smile that you deserve!

The most advanced technology...

Until Insignia Advanced Smile Design, traditional orthodontics entailed a "one size fits all" approach with braces made to fit the average dental anatomy of an average patient. With Insignia, Dr. Housewright uses an extremely accurate, 3D digital representation of your teeth and bite along with sophisticated software to tailor treatment to your specific dental anatomy, smile characteristics and facial balance. Once your unique, one-of-a-kind smile and bite have been developed virtually, your braces and wires are then reverse-engineered and custom-fabricated with your exact prescription.

Fast, comfortable treatment...

Because Insignia treatment is 100% personalized, each aspect is precisely calculated to affect tooth movement in the most optimal way, resulting in fewer office visits, exceptional comfort and less unwanted tooth movement (a side-effect of orthodontic treatment often called 'round-tripping'). Patients often see a reduction in treatment time in comparison to traditional braces. Insignia is ideal for everyone – from the adult with the hectic schedule to the teen who is always “on the go”!

Getting started on your new smile...

The process is simple. The first step is as easy as scheduling a complimentary consultation with our office to gather diagnostic measurements and discuss your treatment solutions and goals. If Insignia Advanced Smile Design is right for you, a 3D digital model of your teeth and bite will be taken using our state-of-the-art Lythos Digital Impression laser scanning system (no goopy impressions!) and transmitted to the Insignia Smile Design lab along with your diagnostic records. Dr. Housewright will then use your diagnostic exam measurements, digital images, specific treatment goals and your 3D virtual model to design your smile. Once your Damon System Braces are custom-fabricated from the final result, you will be scheduled an appointment for placement of the braces and be on your way to your new Inspire-ing smile!

A certified specialist...

Dr. Housewright is a specialist trained and experienced in all phases of orthodontic treatment. He is part of a select group who have committed to many hours of additional training and continuing education in order to properly diagnose and treat using Insignia Advanced Smile Design and Damon System Braces. Dr. Housewright firmly believes in a practice philosophy that the best orthodontic care is provided through the responsible use of progressive technologies and sound orthodontic principles.
