Damon® System Braces This revolutionary system utilizes a unique passive self ligation/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.
Invisible Braces use a series of clear removable aligners, such as Invisalign®, to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move little by little until they have straightened to the final position.
