Our Treatments

Damon System

Dr. Dietrich has been using the Damon System exclusively for over ten years. In previous decades, orthodontics focused mainly on how the teeth fit together (occlusion), occasionally compromising facial aesthetics. The Damon System employs a unique treatment philosophy, used by our doctor, that goes beyond straight teeth to create beautiful, broad smiles, without compromising facial aesthetics.

What makes the Damon System different?

Tie-less braces that don’t need to be “tightened” and are gentle to the teeth and tissues.

High-technology, memory-shape wires that quickly move teeth and require fewer adjustments.

A clinically proven treatment approach that aligns teeth and enhances facial aesthetics – usually without extractions or rapid palatal expandera.

Fast treatment time and few office visits

With the Damon® System, treatment time is typically shorter than with traditional braces. Shorter treatment time means fewer appointments and a beautiful smile…faster. You may be surprised at how fast.

Outstanding comfort

The Damon® System uses tie-less brackets that reduce the pressure on your teeth, allowing them to slide more comfortably to their correct positions. This innovative approach to orthodontics ensures greater comfort throughout treatment.

Clinically proven advantages
  • Extraordinary results for smiles and faces
  • Fast treatment time and few office visits
  • Outstanding comfort with no tightening
  • Significantly reduced need for Headgear and/or teeth extractions
  • Easy to keep clean

Damon® Q Braces

In an effort to provide our patients with the very latest in orthodontics, we are proud to offer new Damon® Q braces: the all-new, all-metal, self-ligating braces system that goes above and beyond to increase patient comfort and reduce overall treatment time while straightening your teeth.

Damon® Q represents the latest advances to the revolutionary Damon® self-ligating braces system, featuring brackets made entirely of high-grade stainless steel, making them strong and extremely durable. The brackets also have smoother, more rounded corners to help provide greater comfort for the patient and to appear even less noticeable than normal Damon® braces! Damon® Q braces feature removable positioning gauges to help ensure your orthodontist places the brackets in the perfect position to give you a great-looking smile!

Damon® Clear Brackets

Introducing Damon® Clear – the passive self-ligating bracket whose beauty is more than skin deep. Damon® Clear combines the look and comfort image-conscious patients demand with the strength and functionality discriminating clinicians need. Validated by multi-site in vivo studies and third-party university research, Damon® Clear is more than meets the eye.

  • Completely aesthetic passive self-ligation bracket with unparalleled design
  • Polycrystalline alumina (PCA) material is resistant to staining from coffee, mustard, red wine and other agents
  • Eliminates the need for elastomerics, which stain and collect bacteria during treatment
  • Advanced passive self-ligation technology with low ligation force, minimizing frictional resistance for more efficient tooth movement

The Orthodontic Treatment Process

Orthodontic treatment is the treatment of malocclusion of the teeth, meaning a bad bite, which include, but are not limited to:

  • Poor dental alignment, including crowding or open spaces, which may negatively impact jaw and proper dental function.
  • Excessive Overbite, where the upper front teeth extend out over the lower front teeth, sometimes causing the lower front teeth to bite into the roof of the mouth.
  • Cross bite, a condition where the upper teeth close inside the lower teeth.
  • Open bite, where the uppder and lower front teeth do not overlap, and proper chewing can be impacted by this bite. An open bite may cause a number of unwanted habits, such as tongue thrusting.
  • Underbite, where the lower jaw extends out, causing the lower front teeth to sit in front of the upper front teeth

Early Treatment

You probably know that it’s never too late to see an orthodontist, but did you know that earlier may be better than later? According to the American Association of Orthodontists, kids should have an initial orthodontic screening at age 7. What makes early evaluation — and potentially, early treatment — so important?

Adolescent Treatment

There are several good reasons why adolescence is the optimal time for orthodontic treatment, though occasionally even earlier intervention is called for. One has to do with the development of the teeth: Generally, by the age of 11-13, the deciduous (baby) teeth have all been lost, and the permanent ones have largely come in.

Adult Treatment

We’re seeing more and more adult orthodontic patients, and it’s not hard to figure out why. Many adults realize that investing in a smile makeover can have significant benefits, socially and professionally. Straightening teeth can be an important part of that confidence-boosting makeover process. And, appliances that are barely noticeable have been advanced to give adults more discreet choices when it comes to orthodontic treatment.

Growth & Guidance Kids Club

Canton OH Braces, Invisalign Canton OH

Did you see our doctor and he recommended treatment later, not now? Well you’re in luck! Our office has growth and guidance visits (sometimes called observation or recall by other offices), free of charge, until you are ready for orthodontic treatment! It means you’re a member of our Kid’s Club!

Our Kid’s Club is fun. When you come (typically every 6-10 months) for an orthodontic check up with the doctor, he’ll take a peek, maybe retake an x-ray, and update mom and dad on your progress and potential treatment timeline.

And for you, we have games! Each time you come, you get to play the game and win prizes, including gift cards for treats and toys from our office. Additionally, if you wear your very own Dietrich Orthodontics Kid’s Club shirt to your appointment, you are entered into a yearly contest JUST for the Kid’s Club! The prize last year was an iPod and this year it’s a Kindle Fire. Wear your shirt to win!

And most importantly, once a year we have a big party for just the Kid’s Club members. Last year it was at the North Canton Skate Center. The doctor rents out the place, just for the Kid’s Club and their families. We skate, play games, climb the rock wall, and enjoy lunch together. We hope we will see you at the next event!
