Traditional braces are the most common method of orthodontic treatment and can be used to treat a wide variety of dental problems, including teeth that are crooked or misaligned, teeth that are overcrowded, large gaps between teeth and teeth which are rotated or protrusive. They consist of metal brackets that are attached to the teeth and which are connected by a wire. The braces put pressure on the teeth, gently correcting their position, and as the position of the teeth changes the wire is replaced with increasingly sturdier ones, making sure the correction is as long-lasting as possible.
The Damon System is not just about revolutionary braces and wires, it's a whole new way of treating patients. Traditional treatment often requires removal of healthy teeth and/or the use of palatal expanders to make space. This approach is often uncomfortable, takes longer, and can leave a narrower arch and a flat profile. Damon smiles are full, natural 10-tooth smiles achieved with light biologically-sensible forces, and are specifically designed to improve the overall facial result of each patient
