Why Choose Wexel Orthodontics

Dr. Walt Wexel for 15 years has vanguarded in Hampton Roads the elimination of early orthodonic treatment in children 8 to 11 through the use of cutting edge techniques.  This saves parents unnecessary, costly and painful years of early treatment.  The money saved and invested could help pay for a year of college.  Not to mention, the years of missed school and work.  Most parents question the need for two phases of 5 year treatment when Dr. Wexel on average accomplishes more spectacular results in sixteen months (at significantly less cost!) without painful extractions, medieval palatal expanders and dozens of early treatment options.  The reason Dr. Wexel does not charge extra for adult treatment is because with the Damon technique adult teeth move as gently and quickly as children's teeth.  Dr. Wexel's adults love the almost invisible Damon clear braces especially since they do not stain.

The Damon System

The Damon System for the first time allows orthodontists to expand the bone and the arches to fit the teeth even if they are severely crowded. Whereas traditional braces require extraction of teeth and early treatment even with moderate crowding to get the teeth to fit the exsiting bone and arches. The difference between traditional versus the Damon techniques is in the use of low friction braces, low force gentle wires that actually expand the bone and crowding for a gorgeous Hollywood smile. This is much less painful and is accomplished in a fraction of the time of traditional braces. Also, this is amazingly done without extractions, palatal expanders or two costly and painful years of early treatment in addition to the later treatment. Damon brackets are much quicker and require only a fraction of the adjustment appointments. This cutting-edge clear technology translates into a more spectacular smile even with lower fees and fewer visits. 

Invisalign

Invisalign is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment that does away with brackets and wires altogether, instead relying on a series of clear plastic trays - called aligners - to straighten teeth. The aligners fit directly over the dental arch and are virtually invisible when worn and completely removable. This means that almost no one will know you're straightening your teeth and you can pop them in and out to brush, floss, eat, and drink - so they come with none of the dietary restrictions of regular braces!

Before and After

A picture is worth a thousand words.  These Before and After pictures, graciously released by happy patients, show the "miracle" of the Damon bone widening and turn Traditional thinking and treatment upside down.  Traditional treatment starts early to make the teeth fit the existing bone often thru long and expensive multi-phase treatments, such as serial extraction of baby then permanent teeth, space maintainers to hold space internally during the loss of baby teeth, palatal expanders, jaw surgery, headgear, pistons, lip bumpers, jumpers, early braces with coils etc.
