New Technology for a Time-Tested Treatment
Braces are the most common and reliable treatment in orthodontics – and the Damon System takes braces to the next level. The Damon System harnesses advancements in orthodontic technology to create a new type of braces that offers a faster, more comfortable, and more effective overall treatment. By using special self-ligating (“tie-less”) brackets, Damon allows each bracket to move along the archwire as necessary. This increases the flexibility of the braces, letting us design treatments that move teeth faster and more precisely.
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:
- Gentler Brackets: Damon brackets don’t require “tightening,” which makes them gentler to teeth and tissues and provides a more comfortable treatment experience.
- Reduced Treatment Time: Damon braces move teeth faster than regular braces, meaning a new smile is closer than ever.
- Clinically Proven Performance: The Damon System has been clinically shown to straighten teeth and improve facial aesthetics faster than traditional braces.
- Fewer Office Visits: Because treatment goes faster, you’ll need to schedule fewer office visits, providing a more convenient treatment.
- A Comprehensive Approach: The Damon System uses a multifaceted approach to treatment, using factors like age, facial structure, profile, and future impacts to create a more effective treatment.
- Comfort: Self-ligating brackets exert less pressure on teeth, making the entire treatment experience more comfortable.
- A Better Smile at Any Age: We can move healthy teeth at any age, which means it’s truly never too late for a better smile. If you’ve been considering investing in a more beautiful smile, Damon can help you get there faster and more comfortably!
