Introducing Damon Braces

Your orthodontist will recommend receiving braces for many reasons. We don’t always recommend straightening teeth for cosmetic reasons. Crowded or crooked teeth can be challenging to clean, which increases the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. We provide several options for braces, including Damon braces. Damon braces are an effective, new alternative to braces that are easier to clean.

Self Ligating

The Damon system uses a slightly different method for straightening teeth than traditional metal braces. Damon braces are self-ligating, meaning the brackets are designed to close around the wires. They also do not utilize elastic ligatures to keep the brackets and wires attached. Damon braces use lower friction to move your teeth gently. Your teeth will move quicker, more freely, and comfortably with Damon braces.

The Damon System Advantage

The Damon system provides several benefits over braces. Traditional braces can require the removal of healthy teeth or expanders to create space. Traditional braces can take longer and cause discomfort. However, Damon braces create a natural, fuller smile using gentle and biologically sensible forces. The following are additional advantages of Damon braces:

  • Easier to clean your teeth
  • They are unobtrusive compared to traditional braces
  • More comfortable
  • Quicker treatment time
  • Fewer orthodontist appointments

The Cleaning Process

It can be difficult to clean your teeth while wearing braces. However, you can end up with damaged enamel at the end of your treatment if you don’t thoroughly clean your teeth. The elastic ligatures can also accumulate plaque and bacteria. Damon braces eliminate these concerns. Since Damon braces are elastic-free, patients are able to thoroughly clean their teeth and benefit from better oral hygiene during their treatment.
