Lewis Orthodontics in Edmond is proud to offer our patients a chance to try the extraordinary Damon Smile orthodontic system. Damon clear braces are a new and innovative type of orthodontic brackets. With Damon Smile, you can achieve your perfect smile more easily than you ever thought possible.
A Different Kind of Orthodontic Treatment
Damon Smile braces work differently to traditional fixed braces. Traditional braces use elastics to guide teeth into place. This exerts a lot of pressure on teeth, which can be painful, especially when the braces are first adjusted.
Damon braces have an innovative slide mechanism, which helps the wire move teeth into perfect alignment. This reduces the amount of pressure on your teeth. You won’t need to visit the office so often, as Damon clear requires fewer adjustments because you can go longer between appointments. It also speeds up the treatment time. So, you can achieve a perfect smile in far less time than it would take via traditional braces. This is often a major selling point for teenagers – and adults!
Damon Clear Technology
Moving misaligned teeth into the correct position is often painful. The Damon Smile system minimizes the discomfort by facilitating healthy teeth movement. Damon Smile passive self-ligating braces eliminate the need for elastics or wire ties, which are traditionally used to pull teeth into place. You won’t need to visit the office to have your braces tightened when you have Damon clear braces fitted. This saves you time and you won’t have to suffer any discomfort – which is a common complaint when traditional braces are fitted.
What is the Damon Smile Treatment Time?
Every individual is different and no two patients require the same treatment. However, the Damon Smile treatment time is typically much faster than traditional braces. Because you won’t need to visit the office regularly to have your braces tightened up, this frees up valuable time and makes Damon Smile a convenient way to achieve a brilliant smile.
How Comfortable is the Damon Clear Braces System?
Many patients assume that because Damon Smile braces work faster than conventional fixed braces, they are more painful. This simply isn’t true. Damon uses a low friction, gentle pressure to guide teeth into position. Light titanium “shape memory” wires are used to move teeth; these wires make it where you can come in every 6-10 weeks. This is far less painful for the patient than colors holding the wire in place.
How Convenient are Damon Clear Braces?
As we have already mentioned, you won’t need as many appointments when you have Damon Smile braces fitted. This saves you time and hassle. However, it is also worth pointing out that Damon braces are easier to keep clean, which makes dental hygiene far simpler as your treatment progresses. Traditional elastics attract plaque and are fiddly to clean using interdental brushes. This minimizes the likelihood that you will suffer from oral decay during treatment.
Damon Smile is also available with a clear bracket system, so you don’t have to sacrifice aesthetics when you choose to invest in a perfect smile.
