Damon System is another revolutionary orthodontic technology that creates beautiful smiles in less time. With no elastic or metal ties, the Damon Brace uses a passive self-ligating, reduced-friction system that facilitates faster and more comfortable tooth movement and enhances facial aesthetics often without extraction or surgery. Damon Clear braces are very discreet and resistant to staining and discoloration throughout your treatment.
Damon Clear combines the best of traditional clear braces and invisible aligners to deliver an aesthetic treatment experience with results that go well beyond straight teeth.
Dr. Crutchfield takes into account your unique facial proportions when aligning your teeth, bite, and smile. In no time at all, you’ll have the facial profile you’ve always dreamed about and a smile that will really make a splash. The Damon System saves time, discomfort, and expense while maximizing the palate arch, smile width, and natural profile.
Unlike traditional clear braces, Damon Clear does not use elastomeric rings, so your braces are very easy to keep clean.
How Damon Braces Work
Damon Braces use a passive slide mechanism instead of elastics to help the wire guide teeth into place. These clips help reduce the amount of pressure being placed on the tooth and require fewer adjustments because there are no elastics to replace. The most efficient and comfortable way to move teeth is with a light, continuous force. The Damon Braces rely on this principle for orthodontic correction.
Damon Braces’ slide mechanism holds a titanium memory wire, allowing freer movement of each tooth as compared with traditional brackets. During appointments, your teeth are analyzed and the wire removed, adjusted, and then reapplied to help ease each tooth into its ideal position.
Teeth often have a tendency to return to their original positions following treatment, which is called a relapse. Many factors can influence the possibility of relapse. Damon System results are built to last; however, it may be necessary to wear some type of retainer following treatment.
Are you a candidate?
Damon Braces are perfect for patients who are not ideal candidates for aligners but who desire clear and discrete brackets. Damon Braces are more comfortable than traditional braces. Treatment time is shorter and fewer appointments are required.
Things to consider…
Patients who don’t like the look and feel of braces will not like this option. Damon braces, while effective, work best with specific oral conditions. Orthodontics by Crutchfield, can assess whether or not the Damon Smile System is right for you during your initial consultation.
