Whether it's early intervention for children or adult treatment, orthodontics is a great way to increase your self confidence, improve your dental health and create a beautiful smile you can share with everyone you meet.
There are various treatment options depending on every person's situation, children often need very very little work to help put their growing teeth back on the right track. Prevention is key.
When crowding is more severe, things like orthodontics plates or braces may become necessary, though we always try to keep treatment as minimal, comfortable and as simple as possible.
The Damon® bracket system has changed the way we can treat orthodontic patients today. This revolutionary system utilizes a unique passive self-ligating bracket and very light forces to achieve results beyond previously conceived expectations. Orthodontic treatment is now less time-consuming and more comfortable than ever before.

We are proud to be the Home of the Damon® System. The Damon® System now has two options with either a metal bracket or an esthetic bracket. We would like to invite you to learn more about what this proven technology has to offer. You will see the beginnings of your new smile in the first few weeks of treatment, and, in the end, will have a great new smile that will last a lifetime.
There is a general misconception that all braces and orthodontic treatments are the same. With all the options available today, it is more important than ever to carefully select what type of braces and technology are used. The Damon® System not only produces beautiful smiles and straight teeth, but allows orthodontists to enhance facial changes as well. We have never before had such an influence on the bone and soft tissues that support and surround the teeth.
Traditional orthodontic therapy involves tying in archwires with colored elastics or small stainless steel wires. This can bind up the archwire and cause the teeth to move at a slower rate. Heavy forces must be applied to overcome inherent friction in the traditional bracket system. These heavy forces can overpower or crush the very delicate underlying blood vessels cutting off oxygen and nutrients. This can be more painful, actually slow down tooth movement and lengthen the time of treatment. The Damon® System, however, takes a completely different approach. It has a patented built-in sliding door that holds the wire allowing it to move more freely to straighten your teeth. We can use very gentle pressure, working with the natural forces of your body. This allows your dental arches to develop the way they were always meant to. In most cases, this is accomplished in far less time with fewer appointments and with far greater comfort!
TRADITIONAL BRACES WITH LIGATURES
Elastic ligatures create friction and require more force and more frequent adjustments.
DAMON® SELF-LIGATING BRACES
Damon® braces allow freedom of movement, resulting in faster treatment with gentler forces.
For years, the traditional thinking was that heavy forces based on what a patient could tolerate were needed to move teeth. By creating the new Damon® System of high-technology braces and wires, very light natural forces can now be applied to move teeth at a rate never seen before in orthodontics. This means less pressure on your teeth for more comfortable treatment.
Traditional braces use colored elastics to hold on to the archwire. The elastics have to be changed frequently because they wear out and become stained over time. Since the Damon® braces have a unique sliding door, they require fewer adjustments. The light force, high-technology wires continue to work for a longer period of time. This means fewer office visits than with conventional braces. We want to make your treatment is as comfortable as possible and fit easily into your busy schedule.
Amazingly, patients of all ages are enjoying more comfortable treatment in far less time! And people all around the world are experiencing startling transformations of the face and the smile that have never been seen before. We are proud to treat patients to the very highest level of care in a shorter period of time with far greater comfort.
