Do you use recycled orthodontic brackets?

NO. In order to obtain the best possible results in a predictable manner, we only use new brackets of superior quality. Even if it is possible to recycle brackets by having them reconditioned, we believe that the recycling process may deform or damage some components of the DAMON® brackets that we use. This could affect bracket performance, treatment duration and the quality of the results.

Are there “invisible” braces?

YES! The iBraces TM system uses braces which are completely customized for each patient. They are placed on the back side (tongue side) of your teeth and are completely hidden from view. Unless you tell them, no one will notice that you are wearing braces.

What is a “headgear” and will I need one?

  • A headgear is an orthodontic appliance worn outside the mouth and attached to the upper teeth. It is used to produce a force aimed at pushing back the upper teeth.
  • It consists of an elastic strap going around the back of the head and a metal bow anchored to the upper teeth.
  • Even if headgears are commonly used in orthodontics, you will not need to wear one in our practice. The technics that we use allow us to obtain the desired tooth movements and corrections without ever using headgears.
