Defined as a speciality that involves the correction of crooked teeth, usually due to overcrowding or misalignment and malformed bites as well as jaw problems; orthodontics procedures result in perfectly-straight teeth.

In addition to looking good, well-aligned teeth are easier to clean. If a person can maintain good dental hygiene, then the risks of gum and teeth problems are minimized. Being able to clean teeth properly is also another reason why people with crooked teeth seek orthodontic treatment.
For children suffering from teeth developmental problems, correcting this condition at an early stage is recommended. It could likely prevent future teeth problems. Ideally, children between the ages of 11 and 16 are perfect candidates for orthodontic treatment.
On the other hand, adults who did not benefit from orthodontic treatment when they were young, can still seek one, without having to feel embarrassed or self-conscious. With the introduction of “invisible braces”, having perfectly-straight teeth is no longer impossible.
The traditional fixed braces (also widely known as metal braces) are a tested and proven efficient method for teeth straightening, still widely used by orthodontists across the world. Patients often prefer them for their cost, which is generally lower than some modern alternatives such as lingual braces.

An alternative to traditional metal braces, self-ligating braces offer the stability of the fixed braces minus the need to have elastics often changed by your orthodontist. Available with metal and clear attachments, self-ligating braces hold the wire with a clip, allowing the movement of teeth to happen more comfortably in the mouth. An additional benefit of self-ligating braces is the predictability of the results; with Damon Clear and Damon Metal, an advanced software system is used to plan the treatment allowing you to preview the outcome before you commit to the treatment.
