Early treatment (also known as Phase-One) typically begins around age eight to ten (Phase-Two will begin around age 11 or older). At that age, the front teeth are already permanent and the back teeth are still baby teeth (mixed dentition).
First orthodontic evaluation should take place at the age of eight.
The goal of early treatment is to correct certain bite problems, such as underbite, and to create room for permanent teeth to erupt properly, lessening the chance of extractions in the future.

Typically, the best time for full orthodontic treatment is between ages 11-14, when all the permanent teeth have erupted. Most children are experiencing at this age growth spurts; this can assist not only in the process of correcting the bite, but also to improve facial esthetic.
A healthy, beautiful smile plays an essential role in the build-up of the adolescent’s self-image and confidence. Comprehensive adolescent orthodontic treatment can provide a wonderful smile that lasts a lifetime, constituting a great investment opportunity.

Orthodontic and braces treatment is not just for kids and adolescents anymore. In fact, about 20 percent of patients who undertake orthodontic treatment are adults over the age of 21.
Many adults are choosing to have treatment because they understand the importance of maintaining their health and improving their physical appearance.
Today’s options of orthodontic treatment offer a variety of braces and appliances, such as clear braces, self-ligating braces and clear aligners, that are comfortable, aesthetic, and customized to meet your needs.

The Damon system is a great way to achieve excellent results.
Thanks to the special design of the Damon braces, softer force can be applied during the treatment- meaning less discomfort for you.
The Damon system uses light continuous force, thus allowing fewer appointments at the clinic. Your time is important also to us.
Transparent braces allow a quick and effective treatment in a more esthetic way.
The clear system operates in the same manner as the metal system but the translucent material of the braces allows for a less noticeable treatment.
The Insignia system is uniquely customized for each patient. The system combines 3D digital technology, among the most advanced in the world, which takes into account the shape of the teeth, their original position, and the final position of each and every tooth.
The exact planning of the treatment outcome allows for a precise and effectively designed system which will achieve great results in the shortest possible time.
