Damon® Clear, the clear way to amazing results!
Damon® Clear Braces braces are the perfect combination of strength and beauty, so you can keep smiling during, and after your treatment. Clear (ceramic) braces are a popular choice for teens and adults who want to make a less noticeable statement with their commitment to a healthier smile. Some clear braces have visible metal parts or elastic ties that can yellow during treatment. But tieless Damon® Clear Braces are more discrete and resistant to staining and discoloration all throughout treatment. These ceramic brackets offer our patients the look they want, with all of the functionality of traditional metal brackets. Their comfortable and attractive translucent appearance help provide the self-confidence that comes from wearing braces that look as good as they perform.
Self-ligating brackets utilize (sliding-door) technology known as “self-ligation” that allow the wires to slide back and forth within the bracket. No elastic or steel ties are used with self-ligating brackets. This technology creates less friction and results in greater comfort for the patient. In addition, self-ligating braces often reduce both treatment time and the number of adjustments that are usually performed.
Invisalign® straightens your teeth without wires and brackets, using a series of clear, customized, removable appliances called aligners. It’s virtually undetectable, which means hardly anyone will know that you’re straightening your teeth.
Consider Invisalign to get the beautiful straight teeth you’ve always wanted- without braces. A consultation with your doctor can determine if Invisalign is right for you.
What is it?
The Invisalign® System combines advanced 3-D computer graphics technology with 100-year-old science of orthodontics. Invisalign® aligners are designed to move your teeth in small steps to the desired final position prescribed by your orthodontist. Each aligner is precisely calibrated and manufactured to fit your mouth at each stage of the treatment plan. Your first step is to visit our office to determine if Invisalign® is right for you. After sending precise treatment instructions, Invisalign® uses advanced computer technology to translate these instructions in a sequence of finely calibrated aligners — as few as 12 or as many as 30. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and only taken out to eat, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next, your teeth will begin to move gradually — week-by-week until the final alignment prescribed is attained. Then you’ll be smiling like you never have before!
Why would i want it?
There are no metal brackets or wires to tighten. The clear aligners are virtually invisible to other people so no one will notice you are wearing the aligners. The aligners are also removable, which means you can eat what you want, brush your teeth with ease and floss with no problems. With the complete, virtual treatment plan, you can see the anticipated results before even starting your treatment. Since you have a series of aligners instead of metal wires and brackets, you actually need to go to our office less often to get adjustments.
Worried about having metal braces for Prom, yearbook photos, or playing sports? Invisalign clear aligners are virtually invisible and most people do not even notice them. Since they are removable, you can eat what you want without any worry of breaking a bracket or rubber band.
Invisalign aligners do not interfere with your daily life, since they are:
Eat What You Want
Ever hear that you won’t be able to eat anything with braces? Not with Invisalign. Because it is completely removable, you can eat all your favorites, from corn on the cob to popcorn or apples.
Worried That Invisalign Will Interfere with Extracurriculars?
Not only are the aligners removable, they are very durable. Invisalign will not interfere with any of your extracurricular activities. No matter if you are acting, playing soccer, running cross country or part of the school band, Invisalign will let you continue to do all the activities you love.
The palatal expander “expands” (or widens) your upper jaw by putting gentle pressure on your upper molars each time an adjustment is made. When you achieve the desired expansion, you will wear the appliance for several months to solidify the expansion and to prevent regression. The slimline palatal expander allows more patient tongue space providing optimal patient comfort.
The M.A.R.A. (Mandibular Anterior Repositioning Appliance) is a bite corrector used to address severe bite problems and jaw imbalances in growing children. This appliance works by moving the upper teeth backward and the lower jaw and lower teeth forward. A major advantage of the appliance is that it is attached to the teeth and remains inside the mouth so it is not visible, unlike traditional headgear that can be self conscious to wear.
Millions of Americans suffer from chronic facial and neck pain as well as severe, recurring headaches. In some cases, this pain is due to Temporomandibular Disorder, also known as TMD. Your temporomandibular joints, or TMJs, connect your lower jawbone to your skull. These joints get a lot of use throughout the day as you speak, chew, swallow, and yawn. Pain in and around these joints can be unpleasant and may even restrict movement. Splint therapy is a conservative approach that can help protect the TMJs from dysfunctional forces and improve jaw-muscle function.
Your smile sets you apart from everyone else, so we evaluate your facial structure and create personalized smiles while establishing a healthy bite.
