Children's Orthodontist in Chapel Hill, NC

At Clifton & Mauney Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, we believe everyone deserves a healthy, beautiful smile that lasts a lifetime. 

Unlike many orthodontists, Dr. Lenise Clifton is also a certified pediatric dentist. This means she has several additional years of education. These years were spent learning how to treat young patients and studying “child psychology, growth and development, and special health care needs.”

Dr. Clifton works with every patient on an individual level, designing personalized treatment plans that take a holistic approach to designing a healthy smile for life. We strive to make treatment comfortable and convenient for our patients, which is why we’re excited to offer Damon braces at our office.

We have decades of experience treating patients in Chapel Hill, Hillsborough, Durham and beyond! We’ve developed the skills and expertise to make every visit to our office a pleasant experience for everyone—even the little ones! 

New Technology for a Time-Tested Treatment

Braces are the most common and reliable treatment in orthodontics. Damon braces feature a special self-ligating (“tie-less”) bracket system that allows each bracket to move along the archwire as necessary. This increases the flexibility of braces, letting us design treatments that some clients may find more comfortable.

Dr. Clifton discusses orthodontic treatment plan options with a patient.

The Benefits of the Damon System

Damon’s special self-ligating brackets offer a number of advantages to traditional braces, and we work with our patients specifically to maximize the effectiveness of their treatment:

Damon Q Brackets

Damon Q brackets utilize the latest advancements in orthodontic technology. Made from high-grade stainless steel, their surface is smoother and more rounded. This boosts comfort without sacrificing efficacy. The engineering behind Damon Braces and Q brackets allows us to place the brackets and wires with better accuracy than ever before, ensuring the most effective treatment possible.
