Alternative braces provide more dental options
Updated: 9/4/2008 8:00:31 PM

Alternative braces provide more dental options An orthodontic treatment that provides an alternative to conventional braces is giving patients more choices about how to straighten their teeth.

Orthodontist Frederick Gunter told WJRT-TV that the Damon system is "far and beyond what I've used in my practice, as far as efficiency, comfort [and] results."

Creators of the treatment claim that it is faster, requires fewer dental appointments and delivers better results with more comfort.

Unlike traditional braces, Damon braces do not require elastic or metal ties but instead use brackets.

They also use an alloy technology known as shape-memory wires, designed to gently guide teeth into place.

One aspect of the treatment that appeals to many people is that it often does not require teeth to be removed or the palate to be expanded.

Patient Joanne Suzara told the publication, "They said they would not have to take any teeth away. I though that was a perfect plan for me."
