At Theresa Shaver Orthodontics, we treat patients using the innovative Damon System Braces to help you achieve your perfect smile. These braces are one of the most exciting technological breakthroughs in the history of Orthodontics.
For years, the traditional thinking was that heavy forces – based on what a patient could tolerate – were needed to move teeth. Most people believed that crooked teeth were the result of "too many teeth for small mouths". Traditional approaches therefore often called for permanent teeth to be removed (extracted), or the use of devices known as a rapid palatal expanders. Even though teeth could be nicely aligned with this approach, long-term research has shown a negative impact on the aging face, bone, and tissue.
The Damon System is very different. It uses high-technology brackets and very light flexible wires. We can now move teeth much more quickly and comfortably, most often without extractions or rapid palatal expanders, and to do so in less time and with less discomfort than ever before.
With the Damon bracket, lighter forces not only make treatment more comfortable, but also provide broader, wider smiles. In addition to greater comfort, the Damon® System makes it easier to maintain good hygiene because it's easier to keep clean than traditional braces. This contributes to greater health, happiness and physical attractiveness for the duration of patient treatment.
Other styles of braces use elastic ties or active clips that "bind" archwires in place. This creates friction and pressure that act like parking brakes and can slow down treatment.
Amazingly, patients of all ages are enjoying more comfortable treatment – in far less time! And people all around the world are experiencing startling transformations of the face and the smile that are nothing short of extraordinary.

Take a close look at people treated with the Damon System and you will see that they have experienced a metamorphosis in their lives. They feel better about themselves. They've grown in confidence. They're more comfortable in social situations. And, put quite simply, they just look more attractive.
The Damon System goes far beyond straightening crooked teeth. It is about creating beautiful faces.
All braces and orthodontic treatments are not the same. With the options available today, it is more important than ever for parents and patients to carefully select the type of braces and technology that will be used. The Damon System not only produces beautiful smiles and straight teeth, but carefully considers how the face is going to change and mature, minimizing the aging process.
