How Treatment Works
Adults and children alike can benefit from the result of orthodontic treatment. A beautiful smile, improved dental health and a boost in self-confidence can each be the result of treatment. Orthodontic problems, which can result from genetic and environmental factors, must be properly diagnosed before treatment begins.
At Damas Orthodontics, Dr. Damas sees each patient at each visit. This type of one-on-one care is part of our practice philosophy and part of our commitment to quality care.
An individual diagnosis and treatment plan is based upon the patient history, clinical examination and diagnostic records. This enables us to make an informed decision in determining what type of appliance will provide the best results for you or your child. Treatment times vary depending upon the severity of the problem as well as patient growth and compliance. Treatment typically lasts from one to two years. Once treatment is completed, retainers are worn to maintain the results.
