Damon Braces for Adults Offer Many Benefits

by televoxweb on Wednesday, June 10, 2015 4:29 AM

At our Scottsdale & Glendale orthodontics practice, we are seeing a growing number of adult patients who wish to improve their smiles with orthodontic treatment. There are many reasons why adults are choosing to see orthodontists. Everyone is interested in the new, discreet treatment options that are available today such as clear braces and Invisalign. Others had orthodontic treatment as adolescents but since have experienced various teeth shifting out of alignment. Many of the adults we see have heard about the Damon System we utilize in our practice, which offers a fast, effective and comfortable way to get a brand new smile.

Advantages of Adult Treatment

It’s never too late to improve your smile! Adult orthodontic treatment can dramatically improve your appearance and give your self-esteem a boost. It can also improve the health of your teeth and gums, which is just as important as a great looking smile.

If you have crooked teeth or a poor bite, you are more prone to gum and bone loss, tooth decay as well as abnormal wear on the enamel and biting surfaces of your teeth. Additionally, you can experience frequent headaches and jaw joint pain due to poor tooth contacts known as (TMJ/TMD).

Damon Braces for Adults

Damon braces are a great treatment option for adults. These tie-less braces do not need to be tightened during treatment and as a result are gentler to the teeth and surrounding tissues. Damon braces make use of high-tech, memory shaped wires that are designed to quickly move teeth without resistance.

Treatment time with the Damon System is typically faster than conventional braces, with patients reporting a significantly more comfortable experience. Due to the advanced technology engineered in the Damon bracket, fewer appointments are required throughout treatment. This means, a perfect smile can be achieved quickly and conveniently which is something most busy adults truly appreciate! The Damon appliance is a clinically proven treatment approach that aligns teeth and enhances facial aesthetics usually without the need to extract teeth.

The Results Speak for Themselves

Because Damon braces are tie-less and don’t require tightening, less pressure is placed on the teeth which makes this orthodontic treatment option more comfortable than other options such as traditional metal braces which require frequent tightening. Adults who have worn Damon braces notice positive changes made to their teeth as well as to the entire face.

The Damon System results in:

  • Fuller, wider smiles
  • Improved facial balance and aesthetics
  • Smoother contours of the cheeks which makes narrow smiles look fuller and more inviting
  • Fewer dark triangles within the corners of the mouth
  • Straighter teeth with less crowding
  • Improved profiles for a more youthful appearance
