Somerset Orthodontic Specialists in Somerville, NJ is pleased to offer our patients passive self-ligating Damon braces. Damon braces use a slide mechanism to hold the archwire, reducing the amount of pressure exerted on the teeth and allowing the teeth to move more freely, quickly, and comfortably. Thanks to these innovative new braces, achieving your perfect smile can be faster and easier than you ever thought possible!
Damon braces are truly the next generation of braces. It is not just an orthodontic bracket, but an entire system and treatment philosophy in which Damon doctors, like Dr. Robert Peterman, must be trained. Damon doctors focus on positioning the teeth for facial balance and creating beautiful smile aesthetics. This often means wider smiles and very rarely needing to extract permanent teeth.
Tie-less braces – A world without elastic ties!
Unlike tradition braces, Damon braces are "self-ligating" meaning they have a door that closes around the wire. This means that we are able to use much lighter elastics and smaller wires to move teeth. For you, this means less discomfort and faster alignment of teeth.
The Damon system facilitates healthy tooth movement with complete control. By combining tie-less brackets and high-tech archwires, we can minimize discomfort and create beautiful smiles that last a lifetime.
Braces are the beginning, but the system makes the smile!
Damon braces is not just about revolutionary braces and wires; it's a whole new way of treating patients!
Damon tie-less braces eliminate the need for elastic or metal "ties." With Damon braces you can experience treatment without tightening.
Even though Damon braces work quickly, the use of gentle, low-friction force means less discomfort for you.
Damon braces are designed to be discreet, comfortable, and easy to keep clean. Without the elastic ties, which attract and collect plaque, Damon braces make dental hygiene easy during treatment. Plus, the Damon System is available in clear brackets for patients who want a great smile without sacrificing aesthetics.
While the time needed in braces will vary from case to case, treatment time with Damon braces are typically much faster than with conventional braces. Also, far fewer appointments at our Somerville orthodontic office are required during treatment, making your Damon experience convenient and hassle-free. We find that most patients visit Somerset Orthodontic Specialists every eight to ten weeks during treatment.
Keeping You Smile Beautiful
Our Somerville, NJ orthodontic practice routinely offers bonded retainers to our patients. Bonded retainers are very thin wires placed on the back of the upper and lower anterior teeth. They are comfortable and an invaluable option that eliminates any relapse that is bound to happen for patients with removable retainers. Our goal is keep our patients’ results as beautiful in the long term as the day we finished treatment together.
Are Damon braces right for you?
Every patient is a candidate for Damon braces! However, those who would benefit the most are patients who may otherwise have needed tooth extractions, have a narrow smile, or have severe crowding.
The best way to find out if Damon self-ligating braces are right for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Peterman at our Somerville orthodontic office. You can learn about your orthodontic needs, and we’ll help you make the best decision to reach your smile goals.
