Why Straighten Teeth?

Straight teeth help an individual to effectively bite, chew and speak. Straight teeth contribute to healthy teeth and gums. Properly aligned teeth and jaws may alleviate or prevent physical health problems. Teeth that work better also tend to look better. An attractive smile is a pleasant “side effect” of orthodontic treatment. An attractive smile is a wonderful asset. It contributes to self-esteem, self-confidence and self-image—important qualities at every age. A pleasing appearance is a vital component of self-confidence. A person’s self-esteem often improves as orthodontic treatment brings teeth, lips and face into proportion. In this way, orthodontic treatment can benefit social and career success, as well as improve a person’s general attitude toward life. There are psychological aspects that are also important. It has been clinically proven that a beautiful smile leads to higher self-esteem. Confidence generates success. People with beautiful smiles have a lot to be happy about.

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.

 Improve your Health

A nice smile is not only beautiful, it also promotes good health:

■Straight and evenly spaced teeth are easier to keep clean, resulting in better

oral health.

■Properly aligned teeth chew more efficiently, which may help digestion.

■Aligned teeth create a better bite, which may reduce stress and strain on your supporting bone and tissue.

■According to the American Association of Orthodontists, crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain. This may contribute to conditions that cause not only tooth decay but may lead to gum disease and tooth loss.

Braces, Brushing and Oral Hygiene = the Sonicare Toothbrush

Sonicare is based on innovative patented sonic technology. Sonicare achieves its bristle velocity through a combination of high frequency and high amplitude bristle motion. Dynamic cleaning action is gentler on dentin than a manual or an oscillating toothbrush. The power of dynamic cleaning action, coupled with the specially designed bristle orientation, results in deep penetration of interproximal spaces. Great for patients with braces.

All of my patients get a Sonicare toothbrush at the start of treatment.

How Invisalign Works

Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you simply wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You simply pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete and you achieve the confident smile that you’ve always wanted. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth. Parents love to straighten their own teeth at the same time as their child!!!
