It is now possible to have orthodontics without having to have teeth out. Why did nature ever intend for us to lose teeth? Perhaps wisdom teeth are the exception to this. Not only is it important to try and keep all the teeth but it is imperative to look at the way the upper and lower jaws line.

Malocclusion (the way the upper and lower jaw meet) is quite often a reflection on what is happening in the rest of the body. Unfortunately for the teeth they grow in as a malocclusion because of the underlying deeper problems. To straighten the teeth without looking at these other issues might lead to the teeth moving again after treatment.

With the Damon Braces it is now possible to make room for all the teeth but at the same time align the upper and lower jaws.

The Damon system uses a unique slide mechanism that minimises the friction and binding associated with conventional braces. With the Damon System teeth align more quickly and comfortably. Most cases can be treated without extractions. No one likes to have teeth removed and a smile with a full display of teeth often produces a broader, natural smile and nicer profile. With the Damon System treatment time is typically shorter than with conventional braces, and shorter treatment times means fewer appointments and a beautiful smile faster. You may be surprised at how fast. The days of having braces tightened are over. Damon System braces have a unique slide mechanism that reduces pressure on your teeth and allows them to move comfortably to their centre positions.
