Area residents who want straight teeth and a fuller, more beautiful smile without the awkward look and discomfort of traditional braces no longer have to settle for metal brackets or clear aligners. Dr. Gutiérrez is now offering DAMON CLEAR, a virtually invisible system of braces that deliver fast, comfortable treatment without the metal-mouth look to accommodate today’s image-conscious adults and teens.
Traditional braces require elastic ties to hold wires in place, which can accumulate bacteria, stain or become yellow during treatment and often require uncomfortable tightening that can actually hinder tooth movement and prolong treatment. In contrast, DAMON CLEAR braces resist staining with the innovative DAMON SYSTEM of tieless brackets and high-tech memory-shaped wires that eliminate the need for uncomfortable periodic tightening. With Damon, the wires move freely within the brackets for better oral hygiene and appearance as well as fast, comfortable tooth movement.
“The DAMON system allows me to treat patients faster and more comfortably than ever before”, says Dr. Gutiérrez. “My patients appreciate the convenience and discreet appearance of the DAMON CLEAR system, and I can create beautiful smiles with better facial results compared to traditional braces.”
The DAMON SYSTEM uses light, continuous force wires with tieless brackets. The gentle pressure exerted by the DAMON SYSTEM discourages the need for tooth extractions and the use of headgear in the vast majority of cases.
“The DAMON SYSTEM is one of the most innovative orthodontic systems on the market and it’s already been used to treat more than 3 million cases around the world,” Dr. Gutiérrez says. “We’re very pleased to bring this high-tech system to our patients in the Tampa area.”
The DAMON SYSTEM is manufactured and distributed worldwide by Ormco, a division of Sybron Dental Specialties, a leading manufacturer of a broad range of value-added products for the dental profession, including the specialty markets of orthodontics, endodontics, and implantology for more than 50 years.
