Carrollton Insignia Braces
The Most Advanced Technology
Like fingerprints, your smile is unique. And so is Insignia, a computerized system that combines digital treatment planning with specialty made brackets and wires tailored to your specific dental anatomy.
The process is simple. Following an initial examination, your orthodontist will take an impression of your teeth for the Insignia smile design lab. Sophisticated imaging software then creates a 3-D representation of your bite while braces and wires are custom-fabricated with your exact prescription.
Fast, Comfortable Treatment
Insignia treatment is tailored to the individual patient. Each aspect is precisely calculated to affect tooth movement in the most optimal way, resulting in fewer office visits and exceptional comfort. And because treatment is 100% personalized, patients often see a reduction in the amount of time they would ordinarily wear braces.
Insignia is ideal for everyone – from the adult with the hectic schedule to the teen who wants to be out of braces and on with their smile.
Precise, Predictable Results
Now you can 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’re able to view, with precision accuracy, the correct curvature and width of the best smile specifically proportioned to your facial features.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does treatment take?
Treatment time with Insignia is typically much faster than conventional braces – from 25-40% faster! In a
ddition, the number of office visits through treatment is often reduced and time in the office shortened. Perfect for the patient and parents with the busy schedules.
Since it works so quickly, does that mean it is harsh or unsafe?
No. In fact, what makes Insignia work so quickly is the customization built into each bracket, the precise bracket placement mechanism and personalized wires. Because your plan is built for you and you alone, it employs far gentler, more biologically sensible forces than conventional braces.
Are the results stable?
Yes. All teeth have a tendency to return to their original position until a new balance of forces can be achieved. Dr. Chang will determine if it is necessary for you to wear retainers after treatment until this balance of forces is attained.
Braces are just a cosmetic concern, right?
Braces not only produce a great smile, but also align your bite so your teeth fit perfectly together. This proper “occlusion” can prevent discomfort and ailments in the jaw, neck and shoulders in addition to providing a stable platform to support your facial structures (cheeks, lips, etc..)
Aren’t braces large and bulky?
The design and technology of braces have made major advancements over the few years. Today’s braces occupy a much smaller footprint on the tooth and new manufacturing techniques have led to a smoother and more comfortable experience for today’s patient. New clear braces offer the same advantages with an almost invisible look.
