Many teens and adults use orthodontic appliances like braces to straighten their teeth. They are often resigned to the fact that they may have to wear traditional braces for several years, that they’ll be noticeable, and that it may be uncomfortable to wear them. If you’d like clear, comfortable braces, then consider the Damon System.
You’ll also be at your orthodontist’s office less. Damon Braces don’t need periodic tightening like metal braces, plus the treatment time is usually faster.
Traditional Braces: How Are They Different from Damon Braces?
Traditional braces have improved a great deal from just twenty years ago. They are made with stronger, lighter material and can straighten your teeth just as the Damon Clear System Braces do. The difference is that they use elastic ties that position the wire in the brace. (The Damon System’s wire passes through the bracket.) This means that traditional braces can become uncomfortable at times due to the friction between the bracket, wires, and ties. If you’d like a more comfortable fit, then consider the Damon System.
Guitiérrez Orthodontics offers Damon Braces System orthodontic services to both teens and adults in the Tampa area. If you think you’d be a good candidate for these braces (and most teens and adults are), then give us a call. We can arrange a consultation and get you started on the road to a wonderful smile.
