How Do Braces Work?

Braces are a combination of brackets and wires affixed to the teeth and adjusted over time, guiding them into the right position with light, continuous force. 

Awkward, old-school braces are a thing of the past! With advanced orthodontic technology, getting braces has never been easier, more comfortable, or less noticeable. Whether you’re getting Damon Braces, traditional metal braces, or clear ceramic braces, we have many types of braces to address your specific concerns and achieve a beautiful smile.

Benefits of Braces Treatment

Braces treatment is more than just a boost to your confidence and appearance. A straight smile is also a healthy and functional smile!

Crowded, crooked, or “gapped” teeth are more difficult to clean, so food particles are easily stuck in the nooks and crannies in your mouth. Even when you practice good oral hygiene, these particles turn into hard-to-reach plaque that can cause gum disease and tooth decay. Getting braces treatment can prevent dental conditions that may require costly procedures in the future.

A misaligned jaw can cause chronic headaches, tooth wear, TMJ, and other painful conditions. If you have an overbite, underbite, or crossbite, braces can eliminate these problems.

Types of Braces We Do...

If you’re considering getting braces, Palmetto Family Orthodontics has many treatment options to achieve an awesome result! 

Damon® System Braces

Damon Braces have a ton of technology packed into a small “self-ligating” bracket design. This lightweight appliance creates very low friction between the wire and the bracket. This amazing system lets teeth move easier and faster because nothing is binding the wire to the bracket! Since Damon Braces don’t need traditional elastic ties, colors are optional! Damon Braces technology also requires fewer appointments, giving you more time in your busy schedule.

Damon® Clear Braces

Damon Clear Braces are very similar to Damon Metal Braces, except that the brackets are made from a durable ceramic material that blends seamlessly into the natural color of your teeth. These braces are great for those who want a less visible braces treatment.

Clear Aligners

Looking for a super subtle orthodontic treatment? Clear aligners are transparent, seamlessly camouflaging into your teeth. No one will even know that you’re aligning your smile! Plus, Palmetto Family Orthodontics is an Invisalign Platinum Plus provider, meaning we are in the top 1% of Invisalign providers nationwide.
