Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that aims to improve the appearance, position and function of crowded teeth, close unsightly gaps or correct an irregular bite. Crooked teeth that do not fit together correctly are harder to keep clean and are at risk of being lost early because of tooth decay or periodontal disease.
Orthodontic treatment can straighten the teeth and move them into a better position and relation to each other for a better smile and oral health. Orthodontists will diagnose, treat and prevent irregularities of the teeth with the use of different techniques such as fixed and removable dental appliances and more specialized treatments like Damon, Incognito or Invisalign among others.
Damon braces are specially designed to use a slide mechanism to hold the wires, which allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably.
Damon braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable and easy to keep clean. Without the elastic ties which attract and collect plaque, Damon braces make dental hygiene easy during treatment. Plus the Damon System is available in clear braces for those image conscious patients.
