Extraordinary Results that Exceed Expectations

With the Damon System, you can deliver truly extraordinary results that exceed expectations. A study by Eberting et al examined quality of treatment outcomes as determined by ABO grading criteria and found that treatment with the Damon System were more favorable, generating a significantly higher score (349.69) than those treated with conventional braces (342.31).1

Another study by Harradine used the Peer Assessment Rating (PAR) index to measure quality of results demonstrated that Damon cases finished an average of 20% better than non-Damon cases.2 (PAR scores differ from ABO scores in that lower numbers represent higher quality results.)

* The peer assessment rating (PAR) index is a standardized method for quantifying abnormal occlusion. It can be used both for the initial assessment and to evaluate the amount of change after an intervention. PAR scores differ from ABO scores in that lower numbers represent higher quality results.
