Damon® braces are revolutionary self-ligating braces that do not require brackets or any other tightening mechanism to adjust the braces. The technology works on a slide mechanism that moves naturally along with the teeth while they realign themselves. Using a memory wire, the device connects to slide brackets that do not apply the kind of pressure that traditional elastic would. Over time, the teeth are set and gradually tighten.
The Damon system works on the gentle tie-less braces mechanism that is soft on the tissue. It requires sparse adjustments due to its superior technology and memory wires. With Damon treatment, times are much shorter and within a short span of time the individual experiences more broad and beautiful smile.
Ceramic dental braces are conventional orthodontic appliances inclusive of archwire and bonded brackets. Also known as white braces or clear braces, they get their name because they are tooth-coloured and do not constitute any metal. Though, the archwire is still metallic and runs across the teeth. Ceramic braces are one of the most popular alternatives to metal braces.
Orthodontic appliances specially engineered to fit teeth and can be removed by the patient are called removable appliances. It can be inserted, removed, activated and cleaned. The appliances are used to tip the teeth and influence the shape of the dental arches. Removable appliances are generally used in conjunction with fixed appliances.
The Forsus (TM) or Forsus spring appliance is a technologically advanced device that ameliorates overbites or class II malocclusions. The apparatus comes with a unique coaxial spring design which addresses traditional difficulties of patient compliance and device functionalities. Earlier, there were extremely limited choices with fixed intraoral devices that were susceptible to breakage. Additional devices such as the headgear were required to ensure compliance of the patient. The Forsus Fatigue Resistance Device overcomes all these obstacles correcting class II deformities with ease
Known by multiple designations, the palatal expander is also known as the rapid palatal expander, palatal expansion appliance or the MEA (Maxillary Expansion Appliance). The appliance is helpful in the expansion or widening of a narrowed maxilla so that both the upper and lower teeth fit together. It works in combination with the expansion of the jaw and movement of the teeth. The palatal expander is placed to correct posterior cross bite, crowded teeth, impacted teeth, cleft lip and palate and respiratory disorders.
Metal braces are traditional braces that are very common among orthodontic patients. Modern metal braces are thinner, smaller and flatter than conventional metal braces. They are now more comfortable and suit all ages. Straight beautiful smiles can be easily achieved with efficient metal braces.
The headgear is an orthodontic appliance that is attached to a palatal expander or metal braces. The headgear helps in correcting severe bite problems especially anteroposterior discrepancies. Metal hooks or face bows are used to attach the headgear to the braces. A head cap or straps positions the head gear to the back or the head or the neck. Pressure is applied to the bow and hooks with the help of elastic bands. This placement stops the growth of the upper jaw and prevents overjet. Besides bite correction, the head gear also helps in creating space for teeth to form. In the case of molars, the headgear bands and tubes draw the molars back into the mouth. The head gear is ideally worn for about 12 to 20 hours in a day.
There are several types of head gears such as face bow or J-hooks, head cap and attachment. There is also the face mask and reverse-pull gear that is used especially to correct under bites falling under the Class III orthodontic problems. For effective correction of the underbite, the reverse-pull gear has to be worn at least 14 to 15 hours per day.
