West Orthodontics is pleased to offer our patients the innovative passive self-ligating Damon Smile braces. Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the archwire, therefore,reducing the amount of pressure exerted on the teeth, therefore,allowing the teeth to move more freely, quickly, and comfortably.
The Damon Smile System combines tie-less brackets and high-tech archwires to minimize discomfort while creating beautiful smiles.
Damon tie-less braces eliminate the need for elastic or metal “ties.” Since there are no elastics to replace or metal “ties” to adjust, the Damon tie-less braces require fewer adjustments.
Damon Smile works by applying a gentle, low-friction force which translates to less discomfort for you.
Elastic ties can attract and collect plaque, Damon braces do not use elastic ties and are therefore make dental hygiene easy during treatment. Also, Damon Smile is available in clear brackets for patients who want a discrete option for straightening their teeth.
As with all treatment options, the time required to complete treatment will vary from patient to patient.However, treatment with Damon Smile is typically much faster than with conventional braces. Also, fewer appointments are required during treatment causing fewer interruptions to your life and making your Damon experience convenient and hassle-free.
