How would you like to attain straighter teeth in a more comfortable and more hygienic way? Damon braces, developed by Dr. Dwight Damon, have literally changed the face of orthodontic treatment and made the process faster and more comfortable. Using a “self-ligating” technique, Damon braces requires no steel or elastic ties to hold the wires in place. This greatly helps in alleviating pressure while the teeth move into a better position. Both treatment time and follow-up visits to our orthodontist are reduced with the innovative Damon System.
Please contact Dr. Chris Murphy for more information on Damon Braces, or to schedule a complementary consultation.
Damon Braces Benefits
Damon Braces often times do not require the extraction of healthy teeth or other techniques to make space in your mouth. Traditional braces often require metal or elastic ties to hold wires together, typically resulting in a feeling of pressure and discomfort among the teeth while they are moving into the desired position. The Damon System utilizes a technology called self-ligation, a process which eliminates the need for the ties and lessens the feeling of tightness during treatment. Plus, Damon braces use shape-memory wires that are able to move the teeth into position faster, ultimately cutting treatment time. Damon braces also diminish the amount of food and moisture that can become trapped along the brackets, allowing for more efficient teeth cleaning.
Even better, Damon braces are available with clear brackets to lessen the visual impact and give you a more aesthetically pleasing smile during treatment.
Dr. Murphy can meet with you to discuss all aspects of treatment with Damon Braces and how they can help you achieve your goals. With this innovative technique, you can attain many of the same benefits of traditional braces with greater comfort and less self-consciousness about how your teeth look to others.
