Dental Irregularities and its Treatment

Fabulous smile can make the most ordinary looking person attractive. An Orthodontist can help you in diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental and facial irregularities which can ruin smile. The technical term for these problems is “malocclusion” which means “bad bite.”

The practice of orthodontics requires professional skill in the design, application and control of corrective appliances, such as braces, to bring teeth, lips and jaws into proper alignment and to cure dental irregularities.

Metal Braces

When most people think of metal braces they think of the big clunky braces of the past. They were extremely uncomfortable and more than capable of cutting your lips. From a cosmetic point of view they were, at best, unattractive and are wholly responsible for the stigma attached to braces today. However, times have changed and so have braces.

Modern braces are smaller and more comfortable than old fashioned braces. They have what is called a low profile design, which is less irritating to your lips. They also have special contours to make your orthodontic treatment go faster and be less painful Braces now use new plastics and bonding adhesives rendering metal bands a distant, somewhat painful memory. Wire and brackets can be “super-glued” directly onto the teeth making them far more secure. There are even some braces that seem “invisible”.

Clear Braces

Clear braces offer a unique advantage over conventional metal appliances. The material composition and design allows an uncompromising level of care and enable you to look good during treatment. Many people may not even be aware that you’re wearing braces at all.

Damon Braces

Orthodontics is a great way to increase your self-confidence, improve your dental health and create a beautiful smile you can share with everyone you meet. Today, an innovative technology – “self-ligating” braces – makes orthodontic treatment less time consuming and more comfortable than ever before. The combination of Damon Passive Self-Ligating Brackets and low-friction, low-force mechanics has been shown to provide remarkable advantages over traditional orthodontic approaches.

The Damon System can help you deliver what patients want – beautiful smiles in less time with less discomfort. The Damon System recognizes the unique characteristics of each individual, yet provides a system that yields superior results with far greater efficiencies than conventional appliances Research indicates that optimum orthodontic forces should be just high enough to stimulate tooth movement without cutting off the vascular supply to the periodontal ligament.

The Damon System appliance is designed to allow the clinician to use these optimum low forces throughout all phases of treatment. This is only possible with a completely passive appliance system. The Damon System facilitates healthy tooth movement with complete control.

  1. The Damon System now has newly designed hooks for easy elastic ligation and superior patient comfort.Slide opens away from the clinician, allowing clear visibility into the slot during placement and when engaging the arch wire prior to closing the slide.New precision MIM slide with enhanced leading edge makes opening and closing easier with more-consistent opening and closing forces.New rounded contours are equal to conventional bracket radii, ensuring greater patient comfort.

    Anatomically correct pad contours that fit the facial surface of the tooth better provide exceptional pad-to-tooth fit for easier placement and fewer bond failures.

    Slide is designed to fully capture the arch wire in the slot. When the slide is closed, it forms a tube much like a molar tube. The result is the same superior torque and rotational control that is achieved with molar tubes.

Sliding mechanics is usually considered only in terms of space closure, but sliding mechanics comes into play in many other aspects of tooth movement such as engaging high cuspids, correcting rotations and levelling and aligning. When moving a high cuspid into position using traditional twin appliances, there is a tendency for the lateral incisor and first bicuspid to move superiorly while the cuspid moves into position.
