Traditional treatment starts early to make the teeth fit the existing bone often through long and expensive multi-phase treatments, such as serial extraction of baby then permanent teeth, space maintainers to hold space internally during the loss of baby teeth, palatal expanders, jaw surgery, headgear, pistons, lip bumpers, jumpers, early braces with coils etc. Most of these are unnecessary and sometimes undesirable compared with the Damon System of light force, low friction movement and expansion of the teeth, roots and supporting bone.
Dr Wexel, in his 15 years of vanguarding the Damon System in Tidewater, has done FOR CROWDING virtually NO EXTRACTIONS, NO PALATAL EXPANDERS, NO TWO-FEE / EARLY-THEN-LATER BRACES. In addition, compared to his Traditional braces, Dr Wexel feels the Damon Clear Braces are 9-12 mo faster, gentler, smoother, more predictable completion times, far fewer visits with less time off work/school, and far less expensive - for the patient.
