Here at Mizrahi Orthodontics, we are committed to providing only the newest technologies in orthodontic care which is why we are a provider of the Damon System of Braces.
What makes the Damon System different?
Damon Braces provide a faster, more comfortable course of treatment by using “sliding door” technology called self-ligating braces. The built in sliding door allows the wire to slide more freely so your teeth will move more comfortably during treatment. Traditional braces use elastics bands to hold wires in place which causes more friction and can loosen up over time.
Elastic ligatures create friction and require more force and more frequent adjustments.
Damon braces allow freedom of movement, resulting in faster results with gentler forces.
Self-ligating braces use a specialized clip in place of elastics to help the archwire guide teeth into place. These clips help reduce the amount of pressure being placed on the tooth and require fewer adjustments.
Damon braces are:
- Tie-less braces that don’t need to be “tightened” and are gentle to the teeth and tissues.
- They use high-technology, memory-shape wires that quickly move teeth and require fewer adjustments.
- A clinically proven treatment approach that aligns teeth and enhances facial aesthetics – usually without extractions or rapid palatal expanders.
The time needed in braces will vary from case to case however the treatment time with the Damon System is typically much faster than with traditional braces. Also, far fewer appointments are required during treatment (appointments are usually scheduled every 6-10 weeks), making your Damon experience convenient and hassle-free.
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 patients who want a great smile without sacrificing aesthetics.
