Everything old is new again.

Westbrook Braces
When we hear this phrase, we tend to think about fashion. The style of our youth coming back around twenty years later, suddenly trendy again despite having been considered cringe-worthy for the last two decades. But it is true in the medical field as well. Traditional metal braces, while effective, have been considered out of style since social media became a thing back in the early 2000s. But now they have been made new again thanks to Damon Braces.

Portland Braces
Damon Braces are tie-less braces that do not require all the components of traditional metal braces, nor do they need to be tightened in the same way. This modification actually makes them gentler and more effective, moving teeth into place faster through the use of precision force. The system has been proven effective in both clinical studies and in the results we have seen at our practice.

Damon Braces are so effective that we can often skip more drastic methods of treatment, such as removing teeth or using palatal expanders, by using Damon instead of traditional braces. In addition to straightening teeth, it is also adept at balancing facial features, turning a smile makeover into a whole new you. These braces can be used with patients of all ages, and clear and ceramic bracket options allow us to minimize the visibility of the system for those with aesthetic concerns. Damon Q braces can enhance the comfort of the system as well.
