INTEGRATED DAMON COURSE
A simplified, predictable and precise technique.
For a more complete and global outcome. More than a treatment, Damon is a global concept and a philosophy of treatment.
Helping you to target: Teeth, Muscles, Jaws, TMJ, Posture & Oral functions!
Helping you to achieve: Aesthetics, Function & Stability!
This is the most powerful and complete technique which focuses not only in the correction of any malocclusion but also in the correction of the factors causing the malocclusion thus avoiding relapse in the future.
Systematic, exhaustive and consistent.
1 To understand crucial concepts such as: orthodontics, maxilo-facial
orthopedics, diagnosis, classification, codification, quantification,
treatment planning, treatment philosophy and treatment mechanics;
2 To comprehensively diagnose a clinical case and select the right cases
for Damon system technique;
3 To accurately select the most appropriate Damon bracket and torque for
each individual case and to comprehensively treat the patient to the
satisfaction of all stakeholders; To review and reflect on each individual
case aiming to improve treatment mechanics and outcomes.
Students will be able to select, diagnose, plan and treat an orthodontic
case using the Damon Passive self-ligation technique.
Students can take the help of remote mentoring to clarify their doubts and
for step by step instructions on each case.
