There are still many patients who come into our office, located near Daly City & Fremont, asking us about the use of self-ligating braces such as Damon, Empower, or SmartClip. We tell them that orthodontics is a scientific profession and that we require sound evidence to show that there are differences in order to make such claims. Unfortunately, braces manufacturers sell these braces at a premium and market them directly to the public.

Your orthodontic results will depend highly on the experience of your orthodontist in diagnosis, treatment planning, and the use of the appliances to properly track your treatment.
