The Damon Brace System, utilizing gentle force, is not just about revolutionary braces and wires, it’s a whole new way of treating patients. Traditional treatment often requires removal of healthy teeth and/or the use of palatal expanders to make space. This approach is often uncomfortable, takes longer, and can leave a narrower arch and a flat profile. Damon smiles are full, natural 10-tooth smiles achieved with light biologically-sensible forces, and are specifically designed to improve the overall facial result of each patient without the need for tooth extraction.

Early Arch Expansion
Often the dentist can detect developing orthodontic problems even before the permanent teeth erupt. For example, baby teeth with little or no spacing between them usually indicate that the permanent teeth will be crowded. In the past, orthodontic treatment was postponed until all the permanent teeth are in, about age 11 or 12. This is still a good choice for many children with orthodontic crowding, because it gives a well corrected result with a single phase of treatment which lasts 18 to 24 months. We now know that more severe crowding should be corrected sooner.
The Myobrace ® System is preventive pre-orthodontic treatment that focuses on addressing the
underlying causes of crooked teeth, often without the need for braces or extraction of teeth,
unlocking natural growth and development. Treatment is best suited to children aged 3 to 15
and involves using a series of removable intra-oral appliances that are worn for 1-2 hours each
day plus overnight while sleeping.
What Myobrace ® treatment does:
- Corrects poor oral habits
- Develops & aligns the jaws
- Straightens the teeth
- Optimises facial development
- Improves overall health
- Promotes healthy eating habits
How does it do this? By helping the child:
- Breathe through the nose
- Correct tongue resting position
- Swallow correctly
- Keep the lips together

What is Invisalign?
Invisalign can give you the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted. It works through a series of invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that no one can tell you’re wearing. So you can smile more during treatment as well as after.
Invisalign is the invisible way to straighten your teeth without brace. Invisalign uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without metal wires or brackets. Invisalign has been proven effective in clinical research and in dental practices nationwide.
How Does Invisalign Work?
You wear each set of aligners for about 2 weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush, and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move – little by little, week by week – until they have straightened to the final position we have prescribed. You’ll visit us about once every 6 weeks to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned. Total treatment time averages 9-15 months and the average number of aligners worn during treatment is between 18 and 30, but both will vary from case to case.
How Are Aligners Made? You’d be Amazed…
The aligners are made through a combination of our expertise and 3-D computer imaging technology.

We are excited to share with you the latest technology in orthodontics called Propel Excellerator which speeds up your treatment. Orthodontic treatment is typically a slow process because the teeth must move through the jaw bone which is hard and dense.
With Propel, we make micro-osteoperforations (small dimples) between your teeth that stimulate the bone. These perforations create a localized inflammatory response. Your body will increase blood flow which results in increased bone re-modelling activity, resulting in accelerated tooth movement.
For Invisalign patients, we can use Propel Excellerator to stimulate a natural response within your bone to get your teeth to move faster. It will speed up your treatment by cutting your treatment time in half and get you to that ideal smile faster.
Propel VPro5 is a high frequency vibration device designed for use with Invisalign. The device is used for five minutes every day. The high frequency vibrations help to position your aligners on
your teeth to achieve a snug fit, ensuring your teeth move fully and accurately in the direction
intended by your orthodontist. Improper aligner positioning can result in extended treatment
