Damon Braces

Dr. Maxwell is a member of the Damon Mentor Group - a group of 22 doctors in the US dedicated to train other doctors in the use of the Damon Appliances.

The Damon appliances are an innovative clinical technology that makes orthodontic treatment more efficient and more comfortable than ever before. The traditional treatment, involving tying archwires in with elastic ties, causes friction. This involves heavier forces to move the teeth, resulting in a longer treatment time. Self-ligation appliances have a built-in "sliding door" that holds the wire in place while allowing it to slide freely back and forth.

This system allows the use of high-tech, light-force wires to achieve tooth movement. This results in less pressure to the teeth, producing a more comfortable treatment. Also, treatment time can be dramatically reduced. This means fewer adjustments, which result in less frequent office visits to achieve treatment goals.

Ceramic Braces

Ceramic brackets are popular among older teens and adults due to their cosmetic appeal. They are made out of composite materials that resemble the color of your teeth. The good news about them is that they are very strong and do not stain from the intake of food and drinks. Adults choose ceramic braces because they blend in with the teeth and are less noticeable than metal wires!
