Traditional Orthodontic Treatment But
With a Unique Twist

Metal braces are the most common orthodontic treatment throughout Las Vegas, but at Orthobar, we use the Damon braces system to take your braces experience to the next level. Opting for Damon braces provides numerous advantages and leaves our clients satisfied and confident with their smiles.


Orthodontic technology is constantly improving, and we're proud to offer the latest to patients of all ages in our Las Vegas office.

Damon braces are a fantastic option for those seeking orthodontic treatment. Most people consider metal braces awkward and uncomfortable, but Damon metal braces have raised the bar. Self-ligating braces are attached directly to the wire, so there are no elastics to adjust as we straighten your smile.

Some of the benefits of Damon metal braces include:

Comfortability: Damon metal braces are self-ligating, making them more comfortable and effective than traditional designs. They use a sliding mechanism instead of elastic bands, reducing friction and discomfort.

Efficiency: Fewer adjustments are needed, which means Damon braces often result in shorter treatment times.

Improved Oral Hygiene: Damon braces are easier to clean than traditional braces since they have fewer components and no elastic bands that can trap food particles, reducing the risk of cavities and gum issues.

Aesthetics: While not completely invisible, they are slightly less bulky than traditional braces, providing a more discreet orthodontic treatment option.

Better Tooth Movement: Thanks to their special design, Damon braces allow your teeth to move more easily. This means your treatment might go quicker, and your teeth could straighten faster.

Overall, Damon metal braces are great at fixing complex tooth issues and use gentler pressure for a more comfortable experience. They can work faster at closing gaps and aligning teeth than other treatments, shortening your treatment time at Orthobar and making them an attractive option for individuals seeking orthodontic treatment.


What Are Metal Braces Made of?


The Damon System uses a patented slide mechanism to connect the brackets directly to the wire, eliminating the need for elastics. That means a better appearance and more comfortable treatment!


Dr. Petersen will use glue to attach the brackets directly to your teeth.


Dr. Petersen uses these tiny elastic “donuts” or rings to create space between your teeth when needed, typically before we place your bands. People also refer to them as "separators.”


We’ll thread a wire through each bracket, and your orthodontist will shape and curve it to guide your teeth into straighter positions.

In most cases, we’ll use the wire to attach all of the upper or lower teeth, but we may cut it depending on your oral issues and the customized treatment plan we make just for you.

Orthodontic Bands

We cement these stainless steel rings to your teeth using dental bonding agents.

These bands anchor your braces and orthodontic appliances, but they aren’t always necessary.
