Damon Braces® on the Upper East Side
Available from skilled orthodontists, Damon Clear combines the best of traditional clear braces and invisible aligners to deliver a discrete treatment experience with results that go beyond straight teeth.
Virtually invisible, Damon Clear has clear advantages over traditional braces and aligners. Damon Clear is part of the innovative Damon System, which combines tieless braces with high technology archwires that are clinically proven to move teeth fast and comfortably with truly spectacular smile and facial results.
What exactly are Damon® Braces?
Damon® Braces are self-ligating braces. The wire travels through an opening and is held by a gate inside the brackets.
What is the difference between traditional braces and Damon® Braces?
Since the Damon® Braces’ self-ligating wire is traveling through each bracket, there is a lot less friction allowing the teeth to move faster. Traditional braces use a rubber band to hold the wire tightly in place. However, the rubber band creates excess friction which adds a lot of time to the treatment process.
How long does the treatment take?
Each patient would have a different time schedule. However, the Damon® braces’ self-ligating wire greatly shortens the time of having braces on your teeth using the light continuous force. Treatment time can be anywhere from 3 to 6 months shorter.
Will my teeth hurt after having Damon® Braces fitted?
Due to your teeth moving into position for a great smile, there will be some mouth soreness. We recommend taking some Motrin and eating soft foods when you feel sore. The tooth soreness will only for 1 to 2 days after the braces are placed.
