Three top reasons people consider orthodontics:
- To improve smile esthetics and overall face appearance
- To correct the way the upper and lower teeth meet when speaking or chewing
- To eliminate malocclusions (bad bites) that could cause teeth and restorations to chip or crack.
How are Damon Braces Different Than Traditional Band & Bracket Orthodontics?
As a society, we have long associated braces with being painful and requiring frequent adjustments. In truth, orthodontic treatments have come a long way from the railroad tracks many people are familiar with. As dentistry has evolved, we’ve seen the introduction of orthodontic treatments that are less painful and drawn-out. To that end, for your utmost comfort and convenience, we are proud to offer the Damon® System Braces.
Damon braces differ from traditional braces in that they use a “passive slide mechanism,” rather than brackets and elastics. This reduces friction, while allowing your teeth to reposition more efficiently and comfortably.
When undergoing straightening with Damon braces, you can expect:
- a gentler overall treatment
- appointments that are typically 8-10 weeks apart
- full results in about half the time as traditional braces
- less complicated treatment for adults
- high-quality results
- easier homecare than tradition braces
- reduced need for extractions or expanders
- and a healthier mouth during treatment and after completion.
With advantages like that, is there really any comparison? Here’s more!
- 100% customized using precision 3D computerized technology
- Up to 50% faster treatments and more exact results
- Tieless braces instead of elastics move wires more quickly
- Brackets in metal and clear options for enhanced invisibility
- Right for most patients
- Right for all ages.
It may be time to re-evaluate everything you thought you knew about braces. With the Damon system, treatment can be less painful and more efficient than ever before.
Why Choose An Orthodontist For My Family’s Care?
Why choose an orthodontist over a general dentist? Does it really make a difference? Here are some important facts to consider.
We know that there are specialists in medicine like cardiologists, neurologists, and dermatologists. There are also specialists in dentistry, like orthodontists, who dedicate their training, their facilities, and their focus to one specialized type of dental procedure.
Training: Orthodontists are qualified dentists who have graduated from dental school, and who have chosen to enter an additional full-time university-based accredited orthodontic program supervised by orthodontists. These programs last at least two years – sometimes more. Orthodontic specialists intensely study tooth movement and the guidance of facial development. An orthodontist is a highly trained expert in straightening of teeth and in jaw alignment.
Facility: An orthodontist builds a practice around a highly specialized form of dentistry. Their office environment, their tools, their staff, and their continued training are all tailored to their specialty.
Focus: Orthodontists concentrate their attention, talent, and professional development on diagnosing, preventing, and treating facial irregularities. Whether working with children, teens, or adults, orthodontists apply their special knowledge to the differences among these three groups.
When considering and investigating braces for yourself or your children, you’ll want a smile that will be beautiful for life. Consider a Board-certified orthodontist first.
