Smiles are a big part of who we are and how we’re perceived by others. 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 socially accepted more than those with noticeably crooked teeth. Nearly half said that crooked teeth leave a negative first impression.
No one wants braces, but many of us need them. And if you’re one of those that needs braces or have children that need braces you want to make sure they’re done in the least painful, but most effective way possible. So many things have changed with the improvements in technology and braces are one of them. Damon braces use “shape memory” titanium wires that are lighter and less bulky than traditional braces. Who doesn’t want less bulky?
Damon has developed a system that’s about more than revolutionary braces and wires, but involves a whole new way of treating patients. Traditional treatment often involves the removal of healthy teeth and/or the use of palatal expanders to make space. Tooth removal and palatal expanders are often painful, require a long period of time 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.
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, eliminating the need for elastic or metal “ties” and no tightening
- Light high-technology shape-memory wires that move teeth faster and require fewer adjustments.
- Use of a new clinically proven treatment approach that straightens your teeth and enhances your facial aesthetics—usually without extractions or rapid palatal expanders.
“Whether I’m catching a wave or out with friends, you’ll always see me smiling. My smile is my favorite part of me! It’s often one of the first things that people notice about me. I have a great smile because I was treated by a great orthodontist using the Damon System.”
“Before getting into braces I didn’t have the straightest of teeth but after being treated with the Damon System I couldn’t be happier. I mean just look at my before and after photos. Getting braces not only improved and brightened my smile, it boosted my confidence! When I was in treatment with Damon they only came in metal but now they come in Clear! So cool.”
