When it comes to medical advancements, you don’t hear a lot about new technologies in orthodontics; instead, we tend to focus on things like innovations in surgeries and life-saving treatments. While braces might not saves lives, they certainly do have the power to change them, which is a big part of what makes our line of work so rewarding.
And because we love providing our patients with smiles that change their lives, we are always adding new treatments. One of the newest and most innovative treatments we offer are Damon Smile braces. These braces are more effective and less visible than traditional braces, using a slide mechanism to hold the archwire in place. Treatment tends to be more comfortable with the Damon system and goes faster than it would with traditional braces.
Braces are the beginning, but the system makes the smile!
Our patients love the Damon system because it feels familiar to what they know, but offers incredible benefits that ensure it goes above and beyond most other forms of treatment. Below are just some of the features that help Damon Smiles stand out in a crowd.
Braces used to need metal or elastic ties to hold brackets in place, but that isn’t the case with the self-ligating technology Damon uses. Without elastic ties, you need fewer adjustments, your braces are less visible, and it is easier to keep your teeth clean and healthy.
When it comes to how long treatment will take, there is no one answer, because every patient is unique. However, when compared to traditional metal braces, patients complete treatment with the Damon system noticeably faster, shaving months off their treatment time. Plus, you need fewer adjustments, and that means you aren’t constantly rearranging your schedule just to see us.
Because the Damon system works faster than other types of braces, you might think that means it applies a lot of force, but in truth, the low-friction force it uses is more comfortable than traditional methods. And since there are fewer parts to these braces, they are less likely to cause you discomfort overall.
Damon braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable, and easy to keep clean. Without elastic ties, which attract and collect plaque, Damon braces make dental hygiene easy during treatment. Plus, Damon Smile is available in clear brackets for patients who want a great smile without sacrificing aesthetics.
