If you have crooked teeth, your entire life can be affected. Not only do crooked teeth impact the quality of your smile, but they can also lead to potentially serious oral health issues. Crooked teeth provide hiding places for oral bacteria, increasing your risk for cavities and gum disease. They can also throw off your bite, leading to issues such as bruxism and TMJ disorder. Metal braces have been the solution for correcting alignment issues with your teeth and jaws for decades, providing highly effective results. At Sawrie Orthodontics, we offer Damon braces to meet your orthodontic needs and alleviate these problems.
Damon Braces Vs. Traditional Braces
Experience the Benefits of Damon Braces
Damon braces, like traditional braces, are a very effective treatment for correcting the alignment of your teeth. This treatment also offers several other significant benefits.
|•||The sliding mechanism tightens your wires automatically. This allows for freer movement of your teeth.
|•||Because Damon braces are self-ligating, your teeth move faster, which can help to reduce your overall treatment time. In many cases, patient's complete treatment with Damon braces up to 6 months faster.
|•||The wires place less pressure on your teeth and your periodontal ligaments. This helps to make treatment much more comfortable than treatment with traditional braces.
|•||Without the need for manual tightening of the wires, you need fewer office visits throughout the duration of your treatment.
|•||Less friction means less bone erosion.
|•||Maintaining oral hygiene is easier. This aids in reducing your risk of developing tooth decay and cavities. Damon braces also reduce your risk for decalcification or small white scars that mar the appearance of your teeth.
|•||Fewer aesthetic issues. The brackets and wires of Damon braces are metal, there are no elastic O-rings. This helps to make them more discreet. We also offer Damon Clear, which uses ceramic or clear brackets, further reducing visibility.|
Damon braces provide you with a more comfortable alternative to the traditional style of metal braces, making your treatment a more pleasant one. For more information on Damon braces, and to find out if they are right for you, call Sawrie Orthodontics today at (423) 624-8217.
