All braces are not the same. Traditional braces use elastic ties to hold the wires in. This creates friction. Friction slows tooth movement. Braces that do not need elastic ties to hold the wires are called self-ligating braces. Damon braces use an innovative slide mechanism to hold the archwire. This reduces the amount of pressure exerted on the teeth, allowing your teeth to move more freely and quickly. The Damon system is revolutionary as it makes the process quicker, easier, and more attractive. Varghese Orthodontics proudly offers Damon braces to give you a broad smile. Thanks to this innovative technology, achieving your perfect smile will be faster and more comfortable than you ever thought possible! Here’s How:
Shorter Treatment Times
With a Damon smile, Dr. Varghese and our extraordinary team can achieve superior results and complete treatment faster due to “self-ligating” brackets. Our average treatment time is 18-20 months, depending upon each of our patients’ individual needs and wants. This may mean a savings of many months of treatment time. After your complimentary consultation, we will be able to provide you with a specialized treatment plan.
Fewer Visits to Varghese Orthodontics
As much as we LOVE to see ALL of our patients, Damon brackets are very precise and effective. We typically see each Damon patient every 8-10 weeks in between adjustments, as this system is perfect for kids on the go and involved in many sports and/or activities!
The unique and smaller, more rounded design allows Dr. Varghese to move teeth into the correct position with less discomfort compared to traditional braces. Patients report experiencing 60 percent less discomfort when compared to traditional metal braces.
More Hygienic Hygienists LOVE The Damon System as it’s so much easier to keep teeth healthy and clean! The color ties with traditional braces allow plaque accumulation in which bacteria can congregate. Removing the color ties enables for better hygiene.
