For those of us who are older, the mention of braces conjures the image of a mouthful of glaring metal. In the past, those who wore traditional metal braces had to deal with broken brackets and loosened wires. They struggled to keep food from getting stuck in the wires and bands, and in some cases even became more cavity-prone because of difficulties with brushing. Happily, much of this struggle has become a thing of the past, thanks to the Damon System that Dr. Barnett and Dr. Tomblyn offer at their Austin, TX, and Round Rock, TX, offices.
The Damon® System is a new, revolutionary option in braces for straightening your teeth. The brackets are smaller, easier to clean, and less fragile. Additionally, the system gives you a healthier smile up to 35% faster than traditional metal braces, with 25% fewer visits! With the Damon® System, you don’t have to worry about bands breaking, because the system uses self-locking brackets to hold the wire in place. You can count on Damon® for your best, new smile!
The first benefit from using Damon braces comes from their notably smaller brackets and their use of a thin connector called an archwire. Because the technology of the Damon system allows for these smaller components, you or your loved one will be able to enjoy a more comfortable and less-obstructed smile.
In addition, Damon braces have eliminated the need for rubber bands. Instead, they use something called “self-ligating brackets.” These brackets use a sliding-door mechanism in place of rubber bands. This elimination of rubber bands further reduces the clutter that would otherwise hide your smile.
The Damon® System has revolutionized the process for aligning your teeth. Its self-ligating brackets require fewer visits to your orthodontist for adjustments or replacements of broken brackets or rubber bands. This steady and reliable technology lets you enjoy a shorter overall treatment time – up to 35% faster than the traditional 2 years of older braces! This means less time in braces and more time overall for having fun with family and friends.
Since the Damon® System uses smaller brackets and no rubber bands, it’s easier to keep your appliance clean and free of rogue food particles. Rubber bands typically get food trapped under them, which can be quite difficult to clean. This challenge can lead to tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease! Damon braces’ locking door mechanism completely removes the need for rubber bands on each bracket, resulting in an easier time brushing and healthier teeth and gums when you get your braces off.
