Damon Braces: Making Braces Fun

Crooked and misaligned teeth can be a hassle. Often times, patients with these oral issues become self-conscious about their smile. In younger patients, this can be exceptionally devastating. Luckily, there are Damon System braces to help correct your teeth’s alignment and spacing issues.

The Damon System is a high-tech line of braces that can help realign your teeth much faster than traditional braces. What makes Damon braces special is their unique design that allows the braces to be self-ligating which eliminates the need for elastic o-rings to hold the wires in place. There are many benefits to using Damon braces to realign your teeth, and Showtime Smiles Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry can help you decide if they are right for you.

Benefits of Damon Braces

When you choose to get your spacing or alignment issues corrected with Damon braces, you are guaranteed to benefit greatly. Obviously, the number one benefit of braces is correcting these issues, but not all braces are created equal, and the benefits of the Damon System are proof of just that. Some of these benefits are:

  • Fewer Treatment Appointments: Traditional braces require tightening, which can be painful, but it’s an important part of the process. Since Damon braces are self-ligating, patients can expect to visit the dentist half as often as they would with traditional braces.
  • Shorter Overall Treatment Period: Typically, patients do not enjoy wearing braces. This makes reducing the overall treatment period crucial when choosing the best treatment method. Damon braces have been shown to reduce the overall treatment period by as much as six months!
  • Comfort: One aspect of the Damon System that really sets it apart is the comfort. Since elastic o-rings are not used with Damon braces, less pressure is applied to your teeth making treatment more comfortable.
  • Improved Appearance: Damon braces are nearly invisible to the naked eye. This makes them more aesthetically pleasing and can help patients feel better about their smile throughout the treatment period.
  • Effective: If the Damon System were not effective at correcting crooked or misaligned teeth, we wouldn’t offer it at our McKinney, Texas office.

Though traditional braces are still important, Damon braces are great for busy kids and parents who don’t have time to go to orthodontic appointments all the time. They can also be a lot more comfortable and attractive for people with sensitive gums. Overall, it really depends on what your needs and preferences.
