Our orthodontic philosophy at the dental touch is to provide our clients with beautifully radiant smiles free of crooked or mal-aligned teeth without dental extractions. We use techniques aimed at providing more aesthetically pleasing faces rather than concentrating only on the teeth by taking facial and profile proportions into account.
To be able to achieve the best orthodontic outcomes, we recommend that the child be seen early, by age 2, to eliminate any potential problems which may make their teeth crooked or change their jaw shape. Habits which may make the jaws or teeth mal-aligned include dummy or thumb sucking after the age of 2, mouth breathing, tongue ties, trauma or early loss of baby teeth, lisps, tongue thrusts, swallowing problems or large tonsils or adenoids.
We can offer concerned mums and dads simple ways to eliminate potential problems which may lead to the child developing orthodontic complications.
A smile is often the first thing people notice. And while you may think you know a great smile when you see it, did you know that quite a number of factors go into making a perfect, beautiful smile?
Broad Smile with No "Dark Triangles" Full smiles display more teeth and have minimal dark space at the corners.
Upright Teeth Teeth should not tip inward or flare outward. The teeth should sit perfectly upright within the mouth.
Minimal Gingival Display An ideal smile shows minimal gingiva ("gums").
When considering all of the attributes that make a great smile, it may seem impossible to achieve with just braces. But, thanks to the Damon System, it can be a reality.
Smile Arc When smiling, the bottom of the upper teeth should follow a curve that mirrors the curve of the bottom lip.
Facial Symmetry The teeth should evenly fill in the entire area of the smile but shouldn’t overwhelm your face.
Front abd Back Occlusion A great smile takes into account how all your teeth fit together for a perfect bite.
What makes the Damon System different?
It’s more than just a bracket.
- Tie-less braces that don’t need to be “tightened” and are gentle to the teeth and tissues.
- High-technology wires that move teeth quickly and require fewer adjustments than traditional braces.
- A clinically proven treatment approach that alignsteeth and enhances facial aesthetics.
Damon System braces use a passive slide mechanism to maintain wires within the bracket, allowing them to move more freely. This reduces friction so teeth move quickly and more comfortably.
Traditional braces use elastics or active clips that "bind" wires in place. Elastics and active clips used to hold the wire can act like parking brakes, resulting in friction and pressure, which can slow treatment and make it less comfortable.
Damon System braces are:
- Easy to keep clean
Clinically proven advantages
Greater patient satisfaction – Fewer adjustments – Shorter treatment times
