Damon Braces

Damon Braces are a state-of-the-art orthodontic solution available at Kurti Orthodontics. With their self-litigating brackets, Damon Braces offer numerous advantages such as smoother movement of teeth, less discomfort due to lighter forces, longer time between appointments, and in many cases, shorter overall treatment time. Additionally, Damon Braces eliminate the need for expanding appliances or headgear, providing a wider and more attractive smile with minimal discomfort and a shorter treatment duration.

Clear Aligners

Clear Aligners are a discreet and effective orthodontic solution offered at Kurti Orthodontics. These clear, removable aligners are custom-made to gradually move your teeth to the desired position. With state-of-the-art in-house lab technology, we ensure fast turnaround and quality results, providing you with a set of aligners that move your teeth to the desired position.

Invisalign ®

Invisalign ® is a highly effective teeth straightening system that utilizes a series of clear, plastic aligners to gently move teeth into their proper position. Using advanced technology, Invisalign ® can help address problems with spacing and crowding comfortably. These aligners are virtually invisible, blending seamlessly with your teeth and can be removed at any time for eating, brushing, or flossing.

Custom Kurti Correction Trays

At Kurti Orthodontics, we offer Custom Kurti Correction Trays that are processed in-house at our lab for the highest level of quality control. With our expertise and state-of-the-art technology, we can create customized orthodontic appliances that perfectly fit and function for each patient’s unique needs.


Post-treatment retainers are essential to maintain the results of orthodontic treatment, preventing the teeth from shifting. At Kurti Ortho, we offer the following types of retainers:

Removable retainers

Removable Retainers

Our removable retainers, using the trusted Hawley brand, are custom-made with an acrylic body and wire clasps to fit your teeth. Typically worn overnight, these retainers are a comfortable and convenient option to prevent teeth from shifting after orthodontic treatment.

Vacuum retainer

Vacuum Retainer or Bleaching Tray

Our Vacuum Retainers or Bleaching Trays are designed to be worn throughout the day, except during meals. These clear, nearly invisible retainers offer a discreet and comfortable solution for maintaining the results of your orthodontic treatment.

Bonded retainers

Bonded Retainers

Our bonded retainers consist of a wire that is securely bonded to the back of 2 to 4 front teeth, either on the upper or lower arch. These retainers are designed to be a permanent solution, ensuring long-term results, with any necessary replacements or repairs performed as needed.
