WHY CHOOSE DAMON?
The Damon System is not just about revolutionary braces and wires, it’s a whole new way of treating patients. Traditional treatment often requires removal of healthy teeth and/or the use of palatal expanders to make space. This approach is often uncomfortable, takes longer, and can leave a narrower arch and a flat profile. Damon smiles are full, natural 10-tooth smiles achieved with light biologically-sensible forces, and are specifically designed to improve the overall facial result of each patient.
Braces are the beginning, but the system makes the smile
Certified Damon System doctors combine three key components, which when used together, deliver faster treatment, fewer appointments, greater comfort, and consistent high-quality results:
Damon passive self-ligating braces that eliminate the need for elastic or metal “ties”. With Damon tie-less braces you can experience treatment without tightening.
Light high-technology shape-memory wires that move teeth faster and require fewer adjustments.
A new clinically proven treatment approach that aligns your teeth and enhances your facial aesthetics—usually without extractions or rapid palatal expanders.
Traditional braces on the left are tied in with elastics, which cause friction and pressure, making treatment slower and less comfortable. Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the wire, which allows teeth to move more freely, quickly and comfortably.
Damon braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable and easy to keep clean. Without the elastic ties which attract and collect plaque, Damon braces make dental hygiene easy during treatment. Plus the Damon System is available in clear brackets for those image conscious patients.
“Given the complexity of the problem experienced by our child, which wasn’t related only to the teeth but also to the jaw position, the end of the orthodontic treatment gave us an insight in all its benefits. The best word to describe the results is –outstanding. From the very beginning, we have every confidence in professional team decisions, concerning the treatment route.When we look at our child today, it is really scary to think about what would happen if we didn’t start with the treatment on time, since the only option left would be jaw surgery. So, we are more than satisfied!”
“I couldn’t be happier with the results of orthodontic treatment with Damon braces. My children, (both my son and my daughter wore traditional fixed braces) are thrilled. I cannot praise expert team excellence and their professionalism enough!”
WHY SHOULD I GET BRACES?
Smiles are a big part of our identity, how we feel about ourselves and how others perceive us. In a recent survey, of more than 1,000 Americans (age 18 and over), 72% of the respondents agreed that people of all ages with healthy, straight teeth are typically treated better in social situations than those with noticeably crooked teeth. Conversely, nearly half said that crooked teeth leave a negative first impression.
“We live in a very image-conscious society and impressions are made within a few seconds. Straightening teeth makes a difference and can ultimately make or break your chances of getting certain opportunities”. — Mark Montano

Teeth Straightening Improves Your Health
A nice smile is not only beautiful, it also promotes good health:
straight and evenly spaced teeth are easier to keep clean, resulting in better
properly aligned teeth chew more efficiently, which may help digestion
aligned teeth create a better bite, which may reduce stress, headaches, and strain on your supporting bone and tissue
according to the American Association of Orthodontists, crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain. This may contribute to conditions that cause not only tooth decay but may lead to gum disease and tooth loss.
When left untreated, many minor orthodontic problems may become worse, contributing to abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, inefficient chewing, excessive gum stress on gum tissue, and misalignment of the jaw joints. This can all lead to chronic headaches or pain in the face or neck. Treatment by a specialist to correct minor orthodontic issues are often less costly than the additional dental care required to treat more serious problems that can develop in later years.
So, no matter what age you are it is never too early or too late to invest in braces and ultimately invest in yourself. Start enjoying the lifelong results today.
HOW LONG DO I WEAR BRACES?
The Damon Braces process is typically shorter than other conventional braces. Shorter treatment times means fewer appointments and a beautiful smile…faster. You may be surprised at how fast the Damon System works for you.
7 months shorter treatment time
significantly fewer office visits
BRACES PAIN, HOW LONG DO BRACES HURT?
The days of having braces tightened are over. This revolutionary new approach to orthodontics ensures greater comfort throughout treatment. That’s because Damon System braces have a unique slide mechanism that allows your doctor to use far lighter forces to move teeth to their correct positions. So not only is your treatment shorter, it is also far more comfortable. So do braces hurt? Many people using Damon braces experience little to no discomfort in treatment!
WILL I NEED TEETH PULLED?
With conventional braces, orthodontists are often forced to pull teeth in order to create space for crowded teeth. No one likes to have teeth removed, and a smile with a full display of teeth often produces a broader, natural smile and a nicer profile. The Damon System uses biologically sensible forces which work with the body’s natural adaptive processes to create space naturally, so doctors using the Damon System can now treat most cases without extraction.
In the few cases which still require extraction, space is made to improve facial balance and symmetry to provide a natural smile and profile that will last as you age.
