The Damon System gives you a broader smile than conventional braces, the type of smile preferred by more than two thirds of adults.
Natural Broad Arch Smile
Smiles with a broad arch show more teeth and fill the corners of your mouth. The result is a more natural and appealing smile. A broad arch also provides facial support, which gives the face a more youthful appearance.
Upright Teeth for Proper Bite
Teeth may appear relatively straight, while still being tipped in (pictured) or flared out. Having the teeth upright and in the correct position helps the jaws to function properly and can protect against wear caused by improper bite. Upright teeth can also enhance a smile’s appeal.
An important aspect of a beautiful smile is the smile arc. A smile arc is created when the curve of the teeth follows the curve of the lower lip, creating a naturally beautiful and flowing smile.
Treating a Gummy Smile
A smile with gingival excess, also known as a ‘gummy’ smile, can distract from the natural beauty of the teeth and face. Many Damon doctors can now treat gummy smiles to incredible results. Ask your Damon doctor about their experience treating these smiles.
While treatment time can vary, the Damon System has been proven to treat faster and require fewer appointments than traditional braces. Light force, high technology and shape memory wires move teeth more efficiently, reducing dentist visits and treatment times to help you better manage your busy schedule.
Damon Braces’ innovative approach to Orthodontics is more comfortable than conventional braces.
Light, Gentle Forces
That’s because the Damon System’s advanced technology uses light, gentle forces to move teeth to their correct positions more freely and more comfortably.
Reduced Need for Elastic Ties
Conventional braces use elastics to tie the wire into the bracket which causes friction and pressure, making treatment slower and less comfortable.
Fewer Tooth Extractions or Expanders
Damon doctors can now treat most cases without extractions, the removal of healthy teeth, or the use of headgear or palatal expanders to make space. These are more often required with traditional treatment and can be uncomfortable.
Healthier For You
The light, gentle forces used by the Damon System promote efficient tooth movement and help improve oral health by preserving tooth roots. Lighter forces also help prevent undue gum recession and tooth loss.
The elastic ties of traditional braces have been proven to attract and collect plaque and bacteria. Because it does not require elastic ties, the Damon System helps improve oral hygiene and protect gum health.
Treatment time with the Damon System is typically much faster than with conventional braces. Also, fewer appointments are required during treatment.
On the contrary, what makes the Damon System work so quickly is that it uses lighter, gentle forces than many traditional braces. The low friction nature of the system and the light force shape memory wires are designed to gently guide your teeth into their ideal position with less discomfort than traditional braces.
Very light "shape memory" titanium wires are used that gently guide your teeth to their ideal position. Many people experience very little discomfort.
Not any more! Braces are smaller than they were just a few years ago, and new options like Damon Clear can help make them more discreet than the metal braces you may remember. Damon Braces have a small bracket size and profile with smooth, rounded corners designed for both aesthetics and patient comfort.
It's not too late! Healthy adults can often be treated just as easily as children. Healthy teeth can be moved at any age. In fact, according to the American Association of Orthodontists today about 1 in 5 patients is an adult. Many patients are treated into their 60s, 70s and beyond.* Many patients seek treatment even if they had braces in their youth. If you're looking into treatment as an adult be sure to consider Damon Braces. In a consumer survey, over 70% of consumer who had previously undergone Orthodontic treatment stated they would have preferred to have received a Damon smile when shown a picture.**
